How to Create a Reminder on Your iPad

By Dwight Spivey

The Reminders app on your iPad is a kind of to-do list that lets you create tasks and set reminders so that you don’t forget important commitments. Creating an event in Reminders is pretty darn simple:

  1. Tap Reminders on the Home screen.
  2. On the screen that appears, tap Reminders from the list on the left and then tap a blank slot with a plus sign to the left of it in the displayed list to add a task. The onscreen keyboard appears.

  3. Enter a task name or description using the onscreen keyboard and then tap Done in the upper-right corner of the Details dialog.

If you want to know how to add more specifics about an event for which you’ve created a reminder, see “How to Edit Reminder Details on Your iPad.”

Note that when you first use Reminders, you have only the Reminders list to add tasks to. However, you can create your own list categories.
