How to use iOS Reminders on your iPhone

Do you use Reminders on your iPhone? A little knowledge is usually all it takes to use them effectively, particularly so far as Siri is concerned.

Sync them up

You can choose to keep your Reminders solely on the device – this can be useful if some of your Reminders are private, or if you are setting work-based prompts on your business iPhone, but most people will choose to sync them across all their devices. Sync is controlled here: Settings>iCloud>Reminders, set to on (green). When this is enabled your Reminder will appear across all the devices you have logged into your account.

How to add a reminder manually

Open up your Reminders app and select the appropriate Reminders list. Once in the list you can type (or dictate) you reminder and edit its details by tapping the small circle-surrounded ‘i’ icon that appears to the right of the item (see below).

Another way to create a new reminder is to tap the Plus icon at the top right of the main reminder index page. Here you can add a new reminder or add a new list of such reminders.

How to add a reminder with Siri

You can ask Siri to remind you of tasks. Just say “Hey Siri” and then describe the task. You can create quite complex reminders, such as “Hey Siri, remind me to call Tim Cook on March 12 to request an update on Project Titan.” Siri will let you know it has set the reminder and give you a chance to Remove it if it is incorrect.

How to add a reminder to a specific list with Siri

Siri is also smart enough to know the difference between he lists you create inside your Reminders app. That’s why you can say things like: “Hey Siri, add a reminder to request a research allowance to my Work list.”
