How to Create a Smart Folder on Your iPhone Notes

Both methods we’ve explained above are great. However, manually moving your notes to specific folders can get pretty time-consuming. Fortunately, you can now automate this process by using a smart folder. A smart folder uses pre-set tags in your notes to automatically sort and group similar notes in a folder. To achieve this; 

  • Open your notes app and tap on ‘folders’ located at the top left of your screen
  • Next tap on the Folder icon bottom left of your screen and select ‘Smart Folder’
  • Rename your smart folder
  • Enter the tags you’d want to use to group your notes
  • If you’d want to create multiple tags, tap on ‘Create new tag’
  • Once you’ve completed your tags tap on ‘Done’ located at the top right of your screen
  • All notes that contain the preset tags will appear under this folder.

So to use this feature, simply use a tag in the body of your note.
