How to Delete Private Notes on iPhone

"I accidentally had my notes syncing in iTunes over air. And now, my phone has got like 500 notes on it. What am I supposed to do? Any way I can clear all of them?"

If you are a heavy user of the Notes app, you must have the experience of wiping those history items one by one. It could be extremely tedious. Guess it makes you wonder whether there are better ways to delete private notes on iPhone in batches. So we are here to offer painless solutions. All you need are a USB cable, a Computer and an application for data erasure. iOS Data Eraser is recommended because it does not just clean up the data, but does it without the risk of being recovered. That is to say, the things that you recorded will never be seen by others even if he/she has your device in hand.

Isn’t it great to speed up your handset and protect your privacy at the same time? You should try iOS Data Eraser, which get things done in two steps. And first, let’s begin with downloading this excellent software.

You are going to see three ways. Choose the one you like.

Note: If you don’t have a copy of the data on your handset, do a backup so that you won’t lose too many files when accidental deletion happens.

Part One: Clean up Private Notes on iPhone

When you choose this mode, the personal information can be wiped if you choose to. (Notes, photos, deleted data, call history and many other things.)

Step 1.Connect the iPhone to PC and Get Prepared for Erasure

After installment, double-click the program icon to open it. You may get this notice when plugging the phone in. It means that connection has failed. Do not worry about. Usually it is just because this is the first time it is done. And you need to tap "Trust" on the phone screen.

Step 2.Preview the Result and Erase Them

After analysis, items will be listed. When highlighting "Deleted Data", you can see "Notes" in the fifth place. The number of the deleted notes is next to it. You need to tick it. (If you want to get rid of the files but not do it thoroughly, leave it unchecked.) There is also "Notes" in the home directory, check it and click "Erase Now".

Part Two: Make the Deleted Notes Irrecoverable

The files that are still on your handset will not be cleared.

Step 1.Scan for the Wanted Content

Choose the mode "Erase Deleted Files" and you will see this interface. Press the button "Start Scan" in the middle. And a few minute is needed for the scanning. Wait until it is done.

Part Three: Dump All Data on iPhone (Notes Included)

This is not overreacting. Actually, this mode should be adopted if you are to give away the iPhone. Or, you can think of it as factory reset. After it is finished, you can recover the iPhone data that you have backed up at the beginning.

Step 1.Begin to Get Rid of the Notes Permanently

Choose the last mode "Erase All Data" and the window will turn into this. There are two things that you should do to guarantee the success of erasure: shut down background apps and complete any ongoing update. After that, type the word "delete" in the blank and click "Erase Now".

Step 2.Wait Patiently until Erasure is Over

Notes, apps, music and other things will be dealt with first. You can tell what kind of data is undergoing the erasing process by looking at the top of the interface.
