I have my work iCloud account that needs to be primary for Keynote collaboration etc.

But all most Notes are in my personal iCloud account. I can use my personal iCloud account for iMessages and iTunes, is there a way to also use my personal iCloud account for notes?

Did a bit of searching and found this answer - Notes from iCloud account don't sync with devices when added as secondary account - that is a bit confusing with the various upgrades downgrades of OS. I am on all the latest OS versions.

  • Is having a separate account on your Mac for personal and work an option? Both can be running together with easy switching between them. – bjbk Apr 19 '17 at 22:53

As of now, it is not possible. I tried adding a secondary iCloud account in Notes>Accounts and Apple restricts the sync of Notes, etc and only supports Mail, Contacts, Calendars, and Reminders on secondary iCloud accounts:

I'd try (no guarantee) to connect the secondary iCloud via the "Others" button in the mail settings, where you'd have to put in the imap/smtp-server-adress from iCloud.

You can find these here https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202304

After that you can enable the Notes and deactivate Mail. The best way to find out is over trial and error although it takes up time...

While you may not be able to sync multiple iCloud notes with other iCloud accounts, you can still share those notes directly from the web (or other devices) so that they appear directly on your personal devices. This will allow you to read and edit the notes along with syncing them to your account.

This is very helpful when using separate Apple IDs.
