    How does one upgrade to "new iCloud Notes"?
    For me even with Settings->Notes pwd setup, only the notes on iPhone and iCloud work to lock the note.

    Would appreciate what and how to upgrade the Notes app? TIA

    When you open the Notes app you'll see the "Upgrade" text on the top right.

    Look at the screen shot in post #20 in this thread.

    As good the Notes Locking mechanism is, what I found out is it only locks Notes that are on "ICLOUD" and "ON MY IPHONE". It does not lock any other Notes that could be on your Yahoo, Google, Hotmail, Exchange etc. So one has to move those notes that require Password authentication to one of the above. So I had to move all Notes from non-apple accounts to ICLOUD to lock them. I think that is how it works - Sigh!!!!

    The other missing feature is - one the Note is password locked and later opened - there is NO Auto Lock feature after a set time. Which means one has to lock the opened note again.

    iCloud is all I use in Notes.

    I've been waiting for this feature. Now I'm completely happy with Notes.

    I'm disappointed because I don't really have anything I feel the need to lock! I'll have to find something!

    I don't believe it works for ALL notes. Just Apple ones ("On my iPhone" and "iCloud Notes").

    I have other note accounts including Gmail, Hotmail and a work account and the lock feature doesn't work.

    Right! Several have pointed out the same above so looks consistent.

    I've found that I can't search for text in locked note pages that I've unlocked.

    Why doesn't the note document have a search field field like the one in the Mac app? The Mac has a search that searches all notes and another search for each individual notes.
