How to change font in Notes app on iOS

iPhone 101: Changing the font for the the iOS Notes app is fairly simple, yet something people can easily overlook if they don't realize the setting is there.

At one point, the iOS Notes app had one font, and one font only. There was no option for users to customize the look and feel of the app. This eventually changed, giving users three different fonts to chose from.

Changing the font for the Notes app on iOS is a very simple process.

  1. Open the Settings app on your iOS device.
  2. Scroll down until you come across the Notes option, and tap on it.
  3. Choose your font.

It doesn't get much easier than that.

One more tip regarding the Notes app: if you had multiple accounts set up to sync Notes, you would be able to set the default account by visiting the same Settings screen.
