Notes is one of the most used apps on your iPhone or iPad. However, have you ever found yourself in a situation where your Notes app becomes a mess and you get lost in the middle of thousands of notes? If you have, believe me that you are not the only one.

Be default, the Notes app sorts your notes by most recently updated. This means that even if you created a note a long time ago and if you edit that note, it will automatically top the list. This feature could be helpful, as it allows you to have access to your most edited notes, eliminating the need to browse all your notes. However, your notes will become very unorganized. Luckily, you can easily sort your notes alphabetically by changing the settings on your iPhone.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to sort your notes alphabetically on your iPhone.
