User Cases

Case 1: I'm trying to move my Evernote notes to Apple Notes, but despite successfully importing them to my MacBook, they won't sync with my iPhone and iPad, even after trying various solutions like logging out of iCloud on the app devices. But nothing works out.

Case 2: I can import Evernote notes to iCloud's Notes on my Mac, but syncing to other devices like iPads, iPhones, and other Macs via iCloud is problematic. Some notebooks partially sync, and new notes won't sync. Toggling iCloud sync on and off clears the issue temporarily. It appears to be a syncing problem that doesn't self-correct, possibly related to volume or capacity.

Can Evernote sync with Apple Notes?

Although Evernote and Apple Notes do not have a built-in, direct sync feature. They are two separate note-taking applications, each with its own ecosystem and syncing capabilities. There are still some workarounds you can consider if you want to sync iCloud notes with Evernote. More details are in the following parts.

Here we will discuss the benefits of making Evernote iCloud integration:

  • Cross-Platform Accessibility: iCloud is tightly integrated into the Apple ecosystem, and if you use both Evernote and Apple devices (like iPhones, iPads, and Macs), syncing Evernote to iCloud can ensure that your notes are readily accessible across all your Apple devices. And you can use Apple Notes as an Evernote alternative.
  • Backup and Redundancy: Having a secondary backup of your Evernote notes in iCloud can provide an extra layer of data security. If something were to happen to your Evernote account or if Evernote experiences downtime, you could still access your notes through iCloud.
  • Integration with Apple Apps: Some users prefer to use Apple's built-in apps like Notes and Reminders. By syncing Evernote to iCloud, you can potentially integrate Evernote notes and data into these Apple apps, streamlining your workflow.
