Good Ted Lasso vibes!

Brett’s Notes Tip: We talk a LOT about the Notes app on iPhone & iPad, and one of the reasons is because the app is so accessible right from an iOS device. And for me using a Mac, the Notes app is right there and everything is synced. But I know a lot of folks are NOT using a Mac, and unfortunately Apple doesn’t offer a Notes app for Windows. The easiest way to access your Notes on a Windows computer is to simply open a browser and visit www.icloud.com where you’ll find a Notes icon there to see all the synced Notes from your iPhone or iPad. Another way to do this is create a Progressive Web App, which is really a shortcut to the website, but it might be easier to access there.
