Apple provides a simple solution for its users to backup their devices wirelessly. Apple's iCloud is a cloud-based service that stores information uploaded by users from their iPhone or iPad. You can backup purchased history from music, movies, apps, TV shows, photos and videos from camera roll, iOS settings, home screen icon layout and folders, ringtones, messages etc. Nonetheless, iCloud is incapable of backing up already stored content such as bookmarks, contacts, reminders, notes as well.
If you deleted some important notes, you may have 2 possible ways to get them back. One is to check the "recently deleted" folder in iCloud.com and the other is to use a professional iPhone data recovery to recover deleted notes from iCloud easily.
