How to Send a Note by Text Message on the iPhone 5

The apps on your iPhone 5 occasionally integrate with one another, often in ways that you may not have originally considered. Sure, you can copy and paste between certain apps, but that isn’t always a very easy task, particularly if you want to copy and paste a lot of text. Fortunately the Notes app integrates well with the Messages app, and you can send the text contained within a note as a text message.

 

Forward a Note as a Text Message on the iPhone 5

I like this feature because I can type out a long message or idea in the Notes app without needing to worry about accidentally sending it part way through. It also affords you the opportunity to kind of “save” a long text message that you might send more than once, so that you don’t need to retype it each time.

 

Step 1: Tap the Notes icon.
