How to create Smart Folders in Apple Notes on iPhone

Apple brings several new features to its native applications and the same has happened with the newly announced iOS 15. The default Notes application on iPhone has received several new features to organize notes like a pro.

One of the new and useful features is Smart Folders. This feature takes advantage of the tags features to organize notes in a folder. For those who are unaware, Apple also added the #tags feature to categorize notes in the Notes app.

Smart Folders are basically pre-defined folders with set conditions. They are defined based on the tags and only notes containing all the selected tags will be shown inside the created Smart Folder.
