How to Change Note Sorting on an iPhone 7

The Notes app on the iPhone is incredibly useful when you need to write something down so that you can reference it later. I use it all the time, and it’s become almost reactionary for me to create a new note whenever I think of something and want to remember it for later.

One unfortunate side effect of this behavior, however, is that I have a lot of notes. If you also use the Notes app, then you have likely noticed that your notes are sorted a certain way, typically with the last note that you edited displayed at the top of this list. But if you would prefer to sort your notes in a different way, such as by the date they were created, or by the title of the note, then our tutorial below will show you where to change that setting.
