Moving Notes to a New Apple ID with iCloud

If you sync notes across devices through iCloud and need to change your Apple ID, you can move your notes from your old Apple ID to your new Apple ID with these steps:

  1. In your device's Settings or System Preferences app, log into your old Apple ID.
  2. Open Notability.
  3. If iCloud syncing is not already enabled, turn it on.
  4. Wait for your notes to download to your device.
  5. In Notability's settings, turn iCloud syncing off.
  6. Tap "Keep on My iPad/iPhone/MacBook".
  7. Open your device's Settings or System Preferences app.
  8. Log out of your old Apple ID.
  9. Log into your new Apple ID.
  10. Open Notability. Because you kept notes on your device, they will still be here.
  11. In Notability's settings, turn iCloud syncing on. Your notes will be uploaded to iCloud for your new Apple ID.
