Setting a Reminder on iPhone

Reminders are an essential feature of any smartphone, including the popular iPhone. Whether you need to remember an important task, an upcoming event, or even a grocery list, the reminder feature on your iPhone can help keep you organized and on track. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the simple steps to set a reminder on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open the Reminders App

To get started, locate and open the Reminders app on your iPhone. The app icon resembles a white square with several lines inside it.

Step 2: Create a New Reminder

Once you have opened the app, tap on the “+” icon located at the top right corner of the screen. This will create a new reminder for you to fill in with details.

Step 3: Enter Reminder Details

Now that you have created a new reminder, it’s time to fill in the details. Start by giving your reminder a title that clearly describes what it is about. For example, if you need to buy groceries, you can enter “Grocery Shopping” as the title of your reminder.

If necessary, you can also add additional information in the notes section of your reminder. This can be helpful for providing specific instructions or additional context related to your reminder.

Step 4: Set a Due Date and Time

To ensure that you don’t forget about your reminder, it’s important to set a due date and time. Tap on “Remind me on a day” option to select a specific date from the calendar view. If you prefer setting up a time-based reminder, tap on “Remind me at a time” option and select the desired time from the clock view.

Step 5: Choose a Priority Level

Depending on the importance of your reminder, you can assign a priority level to it. This will help you differentiate between urgent and less important tasks. To set the priority level, tap on the “Priority” option and choose between High, Medium, or Low.

Step 6: Add a Location (Optional)

If your reminder is related to a specific location, such as picking up something from a store, you can add a location-based alert. Tap on the “Location” option and search for the desired location using the search bar. Once you have selected the location, your iPhone will remind you when you arrive or leave that particular place.

Step 7: Save Your Reminder

After filling in all the necessary details for your reminder, tap on “Done” at the top right corner of the screen to save it. Your reminder will now be added to your list of reminders in the Reminders app.


If you want to edit or delete a reminder at any time, simply find it in your list of reminders and swipe left on it. You will see options to edit or delete the reminder as needed.

Congratulations! You have successfully set a reminder on your iPhone. With this handy feature, you can now stay organized and never forget an important task again.
