    Suddenly all the Gmail notes disappeared from my iphone 6 right after I touched one of ’em on the all Notes list. Then, trying to recover them I noticed that all the gmail emails disappeared from my gmail account as well.
    I checked also my iCloud and iTunes back up accounts trying to recover the lost notes, but I could not find those on both systems even if in the settings, the “Notes backup” were turned ON.

    How to resolve this? What could have been caused this? I updated the iphone firmware 9.3.3 about a week ago, then I saw that another update 9.3.4 is already available, could have been a common problem for other iphone 6 users after this 9.3.3 release?
