EaseUS MobiMover Free offers you a free way to back up iPhone 8 notes to the computer with readable backup files and manageable features. Unlike iTunes backup that won't allow you to back up notes only, MobiMover enables you to back up one or multiple iPhone file categories freely, which means you can choose to back up only iPhone notes, or back up iPhone Notes, Contacts, Message, and calendars to the computer at the same time. In total, MobiMover supports four data transfer types: transfer iPhone/iPad data to computer, import files from PC to iOS devices, copy data between two iOS devices and custom transfer to export certain data as you need.

Click the button below to safely download and install EaseUS MobiMover Free on your computer, then follow the steps to transfer notes from your iPhone to it within minutes. (Notes on iPhone/iPad running iOS 11 or later cannot be transferred due to the limits of the iPhone operating system.)
