Notes app is one of my favourite productivity apps in iPhone, iPad, and Mac. All my important tasks, things, shopping items and more are stored in Notes app on my iPhone. With a long list, I find it difficult to prioritize my Notes. Thankfully, Apple listened to my silent prayer and in iOS 11, I can put important note on the top of the list in Notes app. So here is how you can pin notes in iOS 11 Notes app on iPhone and iPad.

Notes, Reminders, and Clock apps are frequently edited by iPhone and iPad users. Notes, being a productivity app, gets your attention every day.

Step #3: I would select my iCloud Notes here.

Step #4: Next, you are not supposed to tap on any app to open it; just swipe from left to right on the Note you want to pin.

Step #5: Upon swiping a note, you can see a Pin on the left side of the Note.

Step #6: Here, simply tap on that Pin and your Note will be pinned (you can also use long swipe to pin notes in iOS 11). This means, the pinned note will be shown on the top of all Notes you have created in a particular folder.

You can see your pinned notes under a section called Pinned. You can pin more than one note, but remember the note that is pinned first will be displayed on the top, and other notes will be shown in that sequence.
