One user from Apple community recently reported: I tried using iCloud to sync my iOS notes between my iPhone 6s and my Mac. But it did not seem to work. I signed into iCloud on both devices with same Apple ID. And the Notes was set to on. Newly notes will show up on both my iPhone and Mac. But I also need the current local previously created notes to sync as well. Any suggestions?

So to easily transfer all your iOS notes from iPhone to your Mac computer, you can find an alternative utility named SyncBird.
