Sharing is caring!

One of the best ways to keep track of the important information in your life is by using the “Notes Application”. The iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan allows you to create checklists so that you can easily keep track of them and check items off once you complete them.

Today we’re going to teach you how to create a checklist on your iPad, iPhone and Mac using the enhanced Notes application.

How To Create A Checklist On Your iPad or iPhone

First of all, you will need to open the Notes application on your iPad or iPhone and compose a new “Note” or open an existing Note by tapping anywhere in the compose section and selecting the “+” icon.

You will notice that the formatting options will appear and there will be a “checklist” icon on the far left. By tapping the “checklist” icon, blank checklist will appear and you will be able to type in your task. Keep in mind that if you have an existing Note, you will need to move the cursor to the “listed item”, tap on the checklist button and create a mark.

Once you finish a task, just open the Notes application and tap inside the empty circle to mark it is done.

How To Create A Checklist On Your Mac

First of all, you will need to open the Notes application on your Mac device, select Toolbar and click the icon that has a “check mark” enclosed in a circle. If you don’t have checked a listed item, it will have a large and empty circle next to it. Once you complete a task, you will just need to click on the empty circle and it will turn into an orange check mark.

The new checklist that the Notes application comes with is awesome for people who tend to forget to perform some important tasks, such as paying bills, sending important emails, but it is also very useful for when you go shopping (as you can create a shopping list and check a product after purchasing it).

Notes Application Has Now Password And Touch ID Protection

You will be able to lock the Notes application with either a password or Touch ID, so that nobody will be able to open it without your permission. However, this feature is currently available on the developer and public BETA versions of iOS 9.3 and Mac OS X 10.11.4.
