Notes Problem
Posted by: rouderon
Date: January 31, 2019 04:34PM
So, I was editing a note from Notes on my iPhone, and accidentally deleted the contents of the note. As soon as I did, I tried undoing the delete, but there was no where to 'undo.' So I hit the back arrow. Once I did that, the note disappeared. Can't locate it on iCloud (though there is a backup from early this a.m.). There were important passwords there and I think I just learned a valuable iCloud back-up lesson: don't trust it...

Any way the data would still be accessible in my iPhone?

Here's a page about "Undo" for iOS Notes. Not sure if it's helpful, but I learned something.

I did read that, but unfortunately not until after I pressed the back arrow and the whole note
disappeared :-(

Not that I'm aware of. If you deleted the note, it'd be in the trash or might be recoverable as a recently deleted note in iCloud, but a saved-edit is different...

If you were syncing notes to your computer then you could try pulling the Ethernet cable or turning off WiFi to take it offline and prevent it from syncing. Should then be able to copy the text out of the Notes app and put it into a new note or save it elsewhere.

Another option: If you backed up your iPhone to your Mac, you might be able to pull the note from the backup via an app like PhoneView.
