Below are steps mentioned on how to use this newly launched feature on the iOS and iPadOS:

  2. We will proceed further with the Notes app. Click on the Notes app and open any saved note and then look at the bottom to search for the Markup icon and press it.
  3. Then reveal all the new color tools, by pressing the color button situated on the extreme right corner at the bottom of the screen.

  5. You can also opt for the colors by using the dial option or by entering the values manually or through the option “Select colors by hexadecimal values.”
  6. Finally, finish the procedure by clicking Done, appearing on the upper right corner of the screen.
