Spell checking service in apps

iOS and iPadOS
Hello, I have been trying spell checking in the notes app but it doesn't work the way I need it to work. Basically I have a already typed note with spell errors and I need to spell check it. In notes, I have been able to spell check words in typing time, but not after the text is already typed. In the mac, in text edit, cmd + ; will do the trick, putting me in the next misspelled word and letting me access the list with vo shift m ... is there a way of doing something like this in the notes app ... and if not is there an app that will provide such tool, specially that supports other languages? Thanks, Marlon

First go to the word in question then press backspace on the word then a list of suggestions should appear try swiping up and down through the suggestions of corrections.

Please do read the original post. I dont have trouble to access the spell check service when typing stuff. Problem here is that the text is already typed and going word by word to check if some of them happen to be misspelled is not an option. As I said, the text edit on mac allow me to go to the next misspelled word by pressing cmd + ; and this is the kind of stuff I am looking either in the notes app or another app in iphone.

What I would do and I do this anyway is type the stuff in text edit, or paste it in to a new text edit document then spell check it, then paste the edited version in notes. I do this for iTunes reviews, website comments when the site is being odd, etc.
