The Notes app on your iPhone is a great place to record ideas and information that you may need in the future. But it is more versatile than just a simple text app, and it integrates with many of the other apps on your device. One such interaction is with your Safari Web browser. If you are looking at a page and wish to save it for future use, you have the option of saving a link to the page directly to a note.
This interaction will prevent you from needing to copy and paste links, plus the title of the Web page will be included with the link, allowing it to be searchable from Spotlight Search. So continue below to find out how you can start saving to the Notes app from the Safari browser.
