I lost my old iphone SE (gen 1) and most recent backup was 6 months ago (iTunes, no iCloud backup). I want to restore to a new iPhone SE (gen 2020) with the older iTunes backup BUT keep or somehow download all of my recent iCloud Notes (I do backup Notes and Contacts to iCloud). I do see in iCloud Account Advanced settings that I can restore to an iCloud Contact version, but how do this with notes? BTW, I'm using Windoz 2010 not a Mac.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

When you have restored the phone from the older iTunes Backup, it should automatically start downloading the newer notes and contacts from your iCloud account (requires internet connectivity ofcourse).
