Use the Notes app’s Drawing tools to draw, sketch, or handwrite content within a note. Use the

Ruler tool for added precision.

To erase content that you’ve drawn on the screen, tap on the Eraser tool and then

move your finger on the screen over the areas you want to erase. If you want to

delete everything on the screen, however, tap on the Erase All option.

After choosing a virtual writing instrument by tapping on it, tap on an ink color.

Swipe your finger across the ink colors to view all the available colors, and then tap

on the desired color.

When you’re ready, use your finger or an optional stylus to draw or handwrite on

the iPhone or iPad’s screen. You can switch ink colors or writing instruments as

often as you choose (shown in Figure 13.22).


To undo your last action, tap on the Undo icon, or to Redo that

option you just undid, tap on the Redo icon.

If you want to rotate the entire virtual page you’re drawing on, tap on the Rotation

icon. To share just the drawn content, not the entire note, tap on the Share icon

displayed on the Drawing screen.
