The Best Way to Recover Deleted Notes from iPad

Did you accidentally delete Notes from your iPad? This is actually a very common situation to find yourself in. You may have been looking through your notes when you accidentally hit “delete.” How you got yourself in this situation is unimportant. What matters is whether or not you can get your Notes back.

If your iPad is synced with iCloud (which we assume it is), you can very easily get your Notes back as we shall see in Part 1 below. But as we shall also see, you can also easily recover the Notes from your iTunes backup (if they are there) and also if you don’t have a backup. Let’s begin with how you can recover the Notes directly from your device.

Part 1: Restore Recently Deleted Notes

To recover recently deleted notes inside the Notes app, follow these very simple steps. Before we proceed, we should mention that this solution is only available for iOS 9 users.

Step 1: Launch the Notes App from your Home screen.

It would be awesome if you could just go into your iCloud and iTunes backup and select the particular notes you lost rather than restoring the entire device. With Dr Fone - iOS Data Recovery you can do this. This amazing software allows users to easily recover files from iOS devices.
