Maybe another new semester has already begun and you are searching for a few tools to keep things organized at school. What's on the list is taking notes when you are taking lessons or attending a lecture. Thankfully, your iPhone 6s (Plus) houses the versatile Notes app, which allows you to quickly jot down your ideas and create any important lists to remain organized.

Whenever you delete a note on iPhone 6s (Plus), it gets transferred to the Recently Deleted folder where you can restore that deleted note. Sometimes you cannot find the deleted notes in the Recently Deleted folder because you remove the notes directly from that folder or the notes stay in the Recently Deleted folder for more than 30 days, and as a result, iPhone 6s (Plus) automatically trashes them.

Under such circumstances, the lost notes are permanently erased on your iPhone 6s (Plus) in theory and can't be recovered from the device in the event of no backup. Despite all these setbacks, there is still a glimmer of hope if you keep these three things in mind.

Lesson one: The lost notes are not really gotten rid of from iPhone 6s (Plus) for good. The reality is that the space where the deleted notes reside is marked as free space, in an attempt to signal to the device that it can be used for new data.

Lesson two: Please avoid the use of iPhone 6s (Plus) lest the missing notes get overwritten, especially when no backup comes to your rescue.

Lesson three: Use a reliable data recovery tool to restore the lost notes from iPhone 6s (Plus) without backup. The sooner you do this, the greater the chance to get them back successfully. In this case, iOS Data Recovery is equal to this task.
