Create a New Reminder List on iPhone and iPad

By default, the Reminders app on iPhone shows only one list for all the reminders you create. You can add tasks to this list by creating a new reminder on the Reminders app on your iPhone. As you use the Reminders app, you may wonder if there is a way to group your reminders according to topic. That way, you can easily organize tasks or lists based on their relationship to each other. For example, it would be simpler to view a list of tasks for work instead of having them mixed with your personal reminders. You can create separate lists on your iPhone to categorize your reminders. This article will walk you through the steps on creating a new list.
