iPadOS 15: how to use Quick Notes
Quick Notes is one of the new multi-tasking improvements to be added to iPadOS 15. It allows you to pull up a floating note window at absolutely any time while using the iPad. Anything you jot down is saved and can be quickly called up again. The notes are context-aware and can pop-up whenever you need them. Let’s break the features down.

Do you need Apple Pencil to access Quick Notes?


Nope, as of the latest build of iPadOS 15, you can open a Quick Note with your finger.

How do you start a Quick Note? You just scroll inwards from the bottom-right corner of the screen. A Quick Note will pop up, ready for you to jot your ideas down. Alternatively, you can highlight a piece of text on a webpage and choose the “New Quick Note” option that pops up.


You can resize the window any way you want and scroll through your Quick Notes by swiping left and right on top of said window.


Where do I find my Quick Notes?


Once you’ve written down whatever you needed to and pressed “Done” on the Quick Note and it will slide away. Where are my Quick Notes on iPad? You can find them in the Notes app. There’s a new section in there, called Quick Notes. Alternatively, just slide in from the bottom-right corner. You will be able to scroll through your recent Quick Notes by swiping left or right on the window.

Additionally, if you add a link or a quote from a specific web page to your Quick Note, this same Quick Note will pop up the next time you are back to that same place, to remind you of what you were doing.


Add links to Quick Notes


Whenever you pull up a Quick Note, you have an “add link” button on top of it. This “link” will open the page, email, or whatever else you were viewing while taking that exact note.


How do I add quotes to a Quick Note?


Imagine this — you are viewing a web page and you want to link to a specific point in the text, for later reference. Well, pull up a Quick Note, then highlight the text and select the new “Add to Quick Note” option. Now, just like the links above, if you open the Quick Note in the Notes app and tap on the quoted text, you will be taken to the exact page and exact place where that text was taken from.


Quick Notes are context-aware


When you add a link or a quote to your Quick Note, you can expect that Quick Note to be ready for use the next time you come to the same page. It will pop up in a tiny window on the bottom-right.

If you don’t want to view it right now — swipe it away. If you change your mind, swipe in from the bottom-right corner of the screen and Quick Notes will open with that same note ready for use immediately.
