Whenever I create notes in the Notes app, the default account location is iCloud. Apple has set iCloud as the default account for Notes app. Over a period of time, the notes get piled up in iCloud and its storage capacity is consumed. To free up some iCloud storage space, I have to change default Notes account location on iPhone and iPad.

To change your default accounts for Notes App, you need to toggle “On My iPhone” account so that you can store notes locally on your iOS device. However, moving notes from iCloud to iPhone will prevent you from sharing and collaborating Notes with other iOS users.
