iPhone - Notes & Highlights


Adding a Highlight

There are two different ways to highlight Scripture on your iPhone. The first is a single-verse highlight and the second is highlighting a specific block of text.

Highlighting a Single Verse

The first way to add a highlight is to tap on a verse number and select the “Highlight” option.

The highlight editor will pop up which allows you to title the highlight and change the highlight color.

 Select a color for the highlighter to finish editing the highlight.

Highlighting a Block of Text

The second way to highlight is to use the tap and hold function to select an amount of text, maybe a word or two, or several verses, and then tap the “highlight” option from the list.

Again, you get the basic color options and after choosing a color, the text you selected will be highlighted.

One Important Note: Single-verse highlights, made by tapping on a verse number, will appear in every Bible translation that contains that Bible verse. Text selection highlights made by selecting a specific block of text are translation specific and will only appear in the Bible translation that they were created in.

To add a note:

Tap on the verse number where you would like to create a note. A toolbar will pop up, with several options. Select the “Note” option.

The note editor will pop up which allows you to title the note, add text to the note and edit tags for the note.
