How to create a group list in the Reminders app

Reminders iOS 13

The Reminders app was given a complete overhaul with the release of iOS 13. The all-new design includes new features such as a "quick toolbar," enhanced Siri intelligence and Siri suggestions, the ability to add photos, documents, scans, and web links, and the ability to create tasks and grouped lists.

Tasks and grouped lists makes the Reminders app more useful by allowing you to add smaller tasks to larger groups. Say you wanted to do a little shopping, and you created 3 separate lists for the grocery store, Target and Home Depot. You could drag your 3 lists into one group titled Shopping and have them all in one place. Here's how to create a grouped list in iOS 13 and later:

How to share lists in Reminders

In iOS you can share Reminders lists with other iCloud users, which can be a useful tool for collaborative efforts.

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.

Not only can a shared list be viewed by others, but the list can be edited as well. This means those with iCloud or using Family Sharing can actively collaborate on lists. In order to share lists, you must be signed into iCloud and the Reminders app must be enabled within iCloud settings.
