Unable to share notes

Hey everybody! I’ve had the iPhone 7 until very recently when I upgraded to the 11. With the new ios, I have wanted to take advantage of the ability to share notes with other people to work collaboratively. Since getting the phone a few months ago, it hasn’t allowed me to do this and I get an error saying the server is down.

Apple support was no help. I have restarted the phone, updated it, etc.

Make sure you’re saving the notes you want to share in the iCloud folders and not in the “On My iPhone” ones!

Click on the “Folders” button on the top left corner and move them to iCloud if you want to be able to share them. This took me a while to figure out so hopefully it helps.

This is the best solution.

This seems strange. But here are some possible fixes.

  1. Check Apple Server Status from here. Make sure iCloud Notes is green.
  2. Restart your iPhone. (If this does not help, force restart.)
  3. Turn off Notes iCloud Sync and turn it on again. For this, open the iPhone Settings app > your name from the top > iCloud > toggle off Notes. Now, restart your iPhone and follow the same steps to turn it on. Everything should resync.
  4. Signing out of Apple ID and resigning may also help. For this, open the Settings app > your name from the top > Sign Out from the bottom.
  5. Make sure you and the person you are sharing are on the latest respective versions of iOS. (Sharing to iOS 12 or iOS 13 may have some glitches)
  6. Reset All Settings: Finally, if nothing helps, you may open the Settings app > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. (Before proceeding, take a backup to be on the safe side.)

Hope it helps.

Hello Ankur,

I have seen your profile and as well iGeeksBlog . You'll guys doing fantastic, and I appreciate your help on All Things Apple. Especially I love your How-to blogs, which have upto date and details information.

Thank You!

thanks for trying to help but this actually just erased everything on a really important note i had:) thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thank you!!!!!!!!!!

Ankur does not know what he is talking about. Ankur just made me lose 3 months worth of notes. He is no help and make more problems than solutions. Do not follow these directions if you want to keep your notes. This was not helpful at all. I would like to down vote it, but it will not let me. I created an account just to let everyone know not to follow these directions. It will cause more headaches in the long run.

crwdns2893770:0crwdnd2893770:0crwdne2893770:0

were you able to get the notes back?

Hi,

I had this issue and was able to fix it. It could be one of two things,
1. Your iCloud is too full (this is what happened to me) I went into the settings clicked on my profile, then iCloud then managed my data, and removed all of my photos from iCloud. So just back up your stuff and either add more storage or delete the unnecessary items from your iCloud. Just free up some space in there somehow.
2. (Saw someone said this worked for them on reddit) find a way to accept iClouds new Terms and Conditions. I’m not sure where to find this but someone said they noticed they hadn’t accepted the t&c and once they did they were able to share notes again.

Hope this helps :)

Think this is correct. I have the same issue and I’ve just noticed my iCloud storage is completely full.

crwdns2893770:0crwdnd2893770:0crwdne2893770:0

Thank you so much, this actually helped me.

My iCloud was almost full so I deleted some data and tried again and it worked 👍🏾

Try pressing and holding the power button - as if to turn it off. Then swipe up to go to the home screen.

I found if I shared using the email address instead of the phone number I could share notes with another person.

I tried this and it’s saying that I have the settings on private, which I didn’t even know was possible. I also can’t find any information online explaining or even alluding to that possibility

My parents shared an iPad for years, but just now, they bought another one. They both had notes on the first iPad and wanted to share the notes accross the two apple IDs. I shared about 19 notes from ipad#1 and tried connecting with ipad#2. The first note went ok. On the second note I got an error message stating “Can't Open Note Sorry, this note can't be opened right now. Please try again later.” This made absolutely no sense to me. After an hour of testing this and that, googling for solutions - this is what worked for me.

  1. Add note#1.
  2. Go to iCloud settings and turn off Notes + Delete from My iPad - then enable Notes.
  3. Add note#2
  4. Go to iCloud settings and turn off Notes + Delete from My iPad - then enable Notes.
  5. Add note#3
  6. (repeat)

This absolutely meaningless solution seemed to be what needed to be done to get it working. Both iPads were on the latest iOS (15.2)

It worked! Make sure you have everything backed up before starting, then follow the instructions provided by Ankur. In order to restore the notes, turn everything back on (notes for iCloud) and MAKE SURE YOURE CONNECTED TO WIFI so everything can sync otherwise it won’t work. Sn: Do NOT reset all settings though. If that doesn’t work, you can access everything by logging on to your iCloud in a browser.
