With the Save to Photos switch enabled, the Notes app will be prompted to save notes that contain photos and videos straight to the inbuilt iOS Photos app on your iOS device. 

You can always turn the feature off if you no longer want the Notes app to save media files to Photos and place them all inside the same Notes directory instead.

Adding Photos/Videos in Notes

You can add a photo or video into a note by tapping on the Photo/Camera icon then selecting the desired video or photo from your photo library. You can also record or take a new photo or video if necessary.

Photos and videos that are created in Notes are tagged as attachments. To view all attachments in Notes, just open the Notes app then tap the three dots above the notes list. There, you should see the View Attachments option. Just tap on it to see the thumbnails of photos, links, documents, and other files attached to the notes.

And that’s how you configure your iPhone 14 to save media files created from the Notes app to the Photos app.
