How to change the font in Notes for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch

This very, very brief tutorial will show you how to change the font in the Notes App that comes with your iPad, iPhone and/or iPod Touch.

  1. You’d think that changing the font of a Note would be from within the program itself. Not so. Tap the Settings button on whichever Home screen you keep it on.
  2. the settings icon for the ipad, iphone and ipod touch

  3. Select Notes from the list in the left column. Then select the font you want to use in Notes from the Font section on the right.
  4. the settings for the Notes App on the iPad, iphone and ipod touch
    click to enlarge

  5. That’s it. Just exit out of the Settings and open Notes. The font you use going forward will be the one you selected in the previous step.

    Same problem as Katherine’s: My ipod (2nd gen) notes option is no longer showing up in the settings as in the past. Have not upgraded the operating system to 5.01 yet. We still have 4.1.
