Any way to copy iPhone notes to PC or Mac?

The iPhone’s Notes app is really a handy way for us to write memos, make lists or even archive random ideas at any time or anywhere. However, is there any way for us to transfer iPhone notes to PC or Mac, so that we can read or manage them on our computer as well? Here, let's talk about it together and find out a way.

As we know, iTunes can help to back up iPhone notes on the computer, but doesn't allow you to access or read it on your computer. So, we can imagine this: How about back up iPhone notes with iTunes and then extact it on PC or Mac? That's a way indeed. Well, the first way rising in our mind is to transfer notes directly from iPhone to computer. If you have such a need, read on and get to know how to do this in both ways.
