How Do I Restore An Older Backup Of Notes To iPhone?

By | May 25, 2015


“I upgraded from an iPhone 4s to a 6+ earlier this year, and recently noticed a change in all my Notes, where none of my devices have all my notes anymore. They’ve all synced to my iMac (running Yosemite 10.10.3 and time machine/capsule backup) where there was only a few of the notes synced/kept (on my iMac). Is there a way to find and recover my older notes from my iPhones? I still have my 4s and could restore it to an older version if needed without affecting my other devices, I’m just not sure how to do that.”
