Notes is already an incredibly powerful app, and there arguably may not be as much here for Apple to improve upon, but it’s definitely still trying to add to the experience.
Federighi noted that Notes will get a “beautiful new gallery view” which appears like it will be a grid-based view of notes, with thumbnails and titles. It’s kind of an extension of the Attachments view that Notes already has, but covers all of a users’ notes, rather that focusing on the photos, videos, scans, websites, and documents contained within notes.
Notes already offers the ability to share individual notes for collaboration, but it looks like this will get a couple of nice enhancements in iOS 13.
Firstly, you’ll now be able to share notes in “view-only” mode, allowing others to read them without making changes to them, although we’re not sure yet if you’ll be able to mix-and-match viewers and editors when sharing the same note.
In addition to individual notes, you’ll also now be able to share entire folders, according to Federighi, although again he didn’t elaborate on exactly how that will work.
Other features that appear to be coming to Notes include a more powerful search feature, improvements to folder management, and new checklist options.
