The Reminders app has always missed the uncle who would make a person switch from a powerful external task manager. But Reminders have received a significant makeover in iOS 13, including a redesigned user interface and various new features, such as timed reminders, that make the app a worthy to-do list option for the iPhone.
On iOS 13 you can create reminders with attachments, subtasks and even notifications based on day and / or time. If you want to create an expiration date for your most important reminders and want to be notified, you can easily do this via the new quick toolbar.
: Access button from the Quick Toolbar
Open the Reminders app and create a reminder or go to an existing one. To set an alert, tap a reminder and then tap the time button (clock icon) on the far left of the quick toolbar. A few options appear: Today Tomorrow This weekend and Adapted .
If you select one of the first three options (today, tomorrow or this weekend), you will be notified by default at 9:00 AM. For example, if you set the due date for this weekend, you will receive a notification about the reminder the following Saturday at 9:00 AM. A gray tag appears below the reminder so you know which day the alert will sound.
If you do not want to be notified at 9:00 am – which is standard for today, tomorrow and this weekend – you can change that option in the Settings app. In Settings, go to Reminders and switch the switch next to & # 39; Today & # 39; in. An option appears to change the standard 9 AM time; choose a different time.
Apart from today, tomorrow and this weekend, you can choose a custom date and time for a reminder message. You can access this custom option in two ways: by pressing & # 39; Custom & # 39; in the quick toolbar or by tapping the & # 39; i & # 39; next to the reminder. However, the first option automatically takes you to the second option, so both ways work.
Tap "Alarm" to display the date and time change time. If you disable the "Remember me at the same time" option, you can turn off the time and easily get a notification on a specific date (and whatever default time you have in your settings).
You can repeat the expiration date notifications for your reminders on the reminder information page. To do this, tap "Repeat" and then choose one of the options that appear, including daily, weekly, bi-weekly, and yearly to name a few. You can also set a custom repeat option and choose the frequency and days on which you will be notified. Finally, you can choose whether you want to repeat the warning forever or choose a specific date to end the repeat reminder.
Below you can see what the time-based warning looks like (screenshot on the left). If you tap it, you will be redirected to the Reminders application, where a red tag appears below the reminder with the date and time of the alert (and any repeat notifications, if enabled). The reminder is displayed on your home screen unless you manually clear the notification or reminder.
