If you use Apple Notes on your iPhone to record and save notes to your device, you can access these notes from your computer at any time by logging into Yahoo. First, you must first enable syncing between your Apple Notes app and your Yahoo account. When Notes synchronization is enabled on the iPhone, Apple Notes automatically sync between the iPhone and the Yahoo account. Log in to your Yahoo Mail account and access the Notes folder to view your Apple Notes from any computer.

Enable Notes Sync

Tap the “Settings” icon in the iPhone home screen to launch the Settings menu.

Tap the “Mail, Contacts and Calendar” option.

Tap the “Yahoo!” option to configure syncing options, and then slide the toggle next to “Notes.”

Tap “Done” in the top right corner to save the settings. Your iPhone is now configured to sync Apple Notes on your iPhone with your Yahoo Mail account.

View Apple Notes on the Computer

Open a Web browser, and enter the URL for the Yahoo! Mail login page (see Resources).

Type your Yahoo account username and password, and then click “Sign In.” The Yahoo Mail app opens.

Click the “Notes” option in the left navigation menu. The Notes folder opens, and Apple Notes are listed on the screen.


Disable syncing notes between the iPhone and Yahoo Mail by tapping “Settings” from the iPhone home screen and then tapping “Mail, Contacts and Calendar.” Tap the entry for your Yahoo! account. Tap the toggle next to the “Notes” option to turn off syncing between Apple Notes and Yahoo Mail, and then tap “Done.”


Apple Notes cannot be edited from within the Yahoo Mail account because Apple Notes are uploaded to Yahoo via a one-way sync.
