I would just like to transfer a few Notes from an iPhone X to an iPhone Y. I don’t want to do a Restore to Y from a Backup of X, as this would transfer everything from X to Y, and would erase whatever is currently on Y. Is there a way to transfer some selected texts from one iPhone to another? Something like extracting them from a read-only backup archive? Thanks in advance.
