The latest iOS 17 brings a much-needed and useful note-linking feature that allows you to create links in Apple Notes and connect related notes for a better experience. This newly added ability brings the Apple Notes app closer to the third-party note-taking apps that already have had this feature for quite a time now. You can link one note to another or add web links to your notes so you can easily jump between ideas, without using any third-party app. The process is straightforward and gets the job done with a few taps. Let me show to how to link Apple Notes on iPhone in iOS 17.
