>Quick note creation
Start a note
You can tap your Apple Pencil on an empty part of the Lock screen (or use Control Center’s new Notes button) to start taking notes. This shortcut can be turned off in Settings > Notes > Access Notes from the Lock Screen.
New or resume?
You can choose to: always create a new note; resume the last note created at the Lock screen, with an optional duration after which you get a new note; or resume the last one viewed in Notes, with a passcode timeout.
