Apple Notes Tidbit Who Knew?

I just discovered that clicking on the light gray date information at the top of an Apple Note toggles it between created and edited dates. I discovered this by accident.

Cool, works on iOS too.


You learn something new at least every day.

that is going to save me SOOOO many discussions with my wife and children!


Kudos on the discovery! I would like to note, however, that this is one of the frustrating things about Apple in particular and modern tech in general - a lack of things actually being documented or called to the users’ attention.

I’m sure there’s a KB article buried on Apple’s site somewhere that covers the feature you unearthed by accident, but wouldn’t it be wonderful if Apple cranked out a short video about all the cool stuff you could do in each of their main apps?

I absolutely agree! I appreciate good design but sometimes it can be absolutized to the detriment of good function. When features are hidden applications lose some of their value proposition. This is a needless loss.

Well spotted @Bmosbacker , did not know that. I wonder how many other ‘features’ are undocumented?
