I might be missing something obvious, but I can't figure out how to create a nested list in iOS Notes. It's easy on a Mac (just use the tab key), and the iPhone renders a nested list fine, but there doesn't seem to be any way to indent a bullet to the second level of nesting while composing on iOS. Any way to do this?

Nested list in Notes for iPhone

In recent versions of iOS, there's a faster, more direct way of manipulating indentation: you can swipe a given line, to the right or to the left, to respectively indent it or de-indent it.

  • Confirmed, works in iOS 14.
