Create a new note

You can create a new note directly in the Notes app.
Open Notes.

Tap  the pencil on square icon, then write your note. When you're finished, tap Done.
The first line of the note becomes its title.

To change the title of the note, tap before the first word, type a title and press return

Delete a note

To delete a note, open the note and tap the bin icon at the top.

(To recover a deleted note, go to the Folders list and tap Recently Deleted. Tap the note that you want to keep, tap in the note, then tap Recover.)
Do more with Notes
To add a list to a note use this icon

  • To add a photo or video, tap in a note, then tap  the plus inside the circle icon.
Tap Photo Library to add an existing photo or video

When you're finished, tap Done (located near the word photos.)

To scan a document into a note

Inside of any note, hit this symbol above the keyboard. The menu that comes up will offer a few options — this is also the tool you’d use to add a photo or sketch to your note — but the “Scan Document” option is the one you want.
The default settings will capture documents in color.
Tap the shutter button yourself to capture the document immediately or simply hold your iPhone or iPad focused on the document for a few seconds and it’ll automatically go off at a moment when your hands are steady. If you fire the shutter yourself, Notes will let you move around four corner points to line them up with the document’s edges.
Click Keep scan or retake.
Click save to keep.

How to take a screenshot (a photo) of something on your iPad or iPhone
Launch the app (or the email or the webpage or whatever you want to take a photo of)
Press and hold the Sleep/Wake (Power) button on the top or side of your iPad.
Quickly click the Home button at the bottom of the screen almost at the same time.
Release both buttons.

(While you can certainly try and hit both buttons at the same time, holding the Sleep/Wake (on/off) button an instant before tapping the Home button will minimize the chances of accidentally activating Siri.)

To take a screenshot on the new iPad Pro, press the sleep/wake button -- it's the button on top of the iPad Pro-- and the volume-up button at the same time. You don't need to hold the buttons in for an extended amount of time

Using the Photo App on Ipad and IPhone

How to take a photo

Launch the Camera app from your iPhone or iPad's Home screen.
Tap the Shutter button.
Your photo will now be taken and saved to the Camera Roll/All Photos album. You can access it at any time by launching the Photos app.

How to use the volume button to take a photo

If you prefer a button for your shutter, you're in luck. You can snap away with the volume buttons.
Launch the Camera app from the Home screen.
Frame the scene you want to take, just like normal.
Press the volume button to activate the camera shutter and take a picture.

How to take and select 'burst mode' photos
Burst mode takes a series of photos in rapid succession. It's great for sports and action shots, and group photos if you want to get everyone with their eyes open.
Launch the Camera app from your iPhone or iPad's Home screen.
Frame the scene you want to take, just like normal.
Hold down the Shutter button or Volume button to take a burst of pictures.
Ipad/Iphone will automatically choose the best photos from the burst. If you don't like photos it chooses, you can choose your own.
Tap on the burst mode stack you want to view.
(You will only see one photo but at the top it will say how many photos)
Tap on Select....
Tap the blue checkmark on each photo you'd like to keep. When perusing the thumbnails, you'll see a grey dot below the photos with the best focus and composition.Tap on Done when you've checked the ones you'd like to keep.
Tap Keep Everything if you want to keep all the photos in your burst (in case you want to change your mind later) or tap Keep Only (number) Favorites to trash the photos you didn't pick and keep only the ones you did (if you're sure).
The selected photos are now ungrouped and in your photostream.

How to take a panorama with your iPhone or iPad
Launch the Camera app on your iPhone or iPad.
Swipe left or right or (up and down) to change the mode to Pano. It’s the last option.

Tap the shutter button to start taking a panoramic photo.
Turn or pan your iPhone or iPad to capture as much of your surroundings as you like.

Try to keep the point of the arrow in line with the yellow guide.

Tap the shutter button again to end

This takes some practice so keep trying!
The Camera app doesn't currently support full 360º panoramas. You can take up to a 240º panorama in one shot, so keep that in mind. You obviously don't have to use the entire 240º
