The New Notes buttons, for adding text, photos, reminders, and lists, were also redesigned and now appear at the top of the homepage, instead of the bottom, and are larger and more visually appealing.

The option for scanning business cards is initiated by tapping the camera note button and sliding left on the screen to select the business card scanning button.
