It’s not always easy to remember when doing important things. Fortunately, your iPhone or iPad can easily remind you of repetitive tasks or events using the Reminder Apps . Here’s how to set it.
First, launch the Reminder Apps on your iPhone or iPad. The interface will be slightly different between the two platforms, but the options are basically the same. Tap the “Today” button, then add a new reminder by tapping the “New Reminder” button at the bottom of the screen.
When the reminder entry appears, type in whatever name you like – for example, “Check the Smoke Detector Battery” or “Feed the Goats.” After that, tap the “Info” button right next to the reminder name. (The Info button looks like a small circle with the letter “i” in it.)
In the Details panel that appears, select the start date and time for the reminder. To make a reminder repeat, tap the “Repeat” option.
You can have reminders that are repeated every day, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, every 3 months, every 6 months, annually, or at a specific frequency. By using the “Custom” option, you can choose to repeat reminders on certain days of the week, certain weeks of the month, or certain months of the year. Choose the option that suits you best.
After setting the repetition interval, you can also choose the date when the repetition will end using the “End Repeat” option. Or you can repeat the reminder forever.
When finished, tap “Done,” and the reminder entry will be saved. You will know it’s configured correctly if you see it listed in your Reminder Apps .
If you need to add more repeat reminders, just tap the “New Reminder” button again. You can add as many as you like. Good luck!
