Apple - - how to access history?

No, there is no history of notes. Once modified and synchronised, the note is overwritten and older versions are not available. Per my answer on your last question, you may be able to obtain older versions if a device has been offline, but besides this, unfortunately not. You can provide feedback to Apple at

If you use backup software such as Time Machine, you may be able to access your history/older versions of your notes by restoring the 3 .sqlite files in:

~/Library/Group Containers/

Restore Process

  1. Quit
  2. Restore those 3 files to the date of the version of the notes you're trying to get
  3. If you use iCloud, make sure you disconnect from your internet so the notes aren't synced from iCloud when you re-open
  4. Re-open
