Creating new lists in the Reminders app can help keep everything organized. One of the great features of iOS is the capability to create reminders from content in other apps, or by dictating a reminder to Siri. iOS automatically puts these reminders into a default list. When first starting up iOS the default list is set to "Reminders".
This default list can be changed, but not from within the Reminders app. To change the default list in Reminders on iOS follow these steps:
- Navigate to Settings -> Reminders
- Tap Default List
- Select a list. The default list will be marked with a check
Once the new default list is set, it will appear in Settings under Settings -> Reminders. Siri and other apps which add reminders will put new reminders on the default list.
