Save Any List as a Template (and Share It)
Apple’s Reminders app isn’t just about reminders; many folks also use it for creating simple checklists for things like packing or daily routines. It’s actually an excellent tool for that purpose, and now iOS 16 will make it even better by letting you save those lists as templates so you can re-use them as many times as you want.
Any list can be quickly turned into a template, and you can choose whether to include completed items when saving a list as a template. Once you’ve done that, you can create a new list from that template as often as you like — simply choose the “Templates” tab when creating a new list.
While you’ll need to use an actual list to create a template, you can also edit existing templates without re-saving them. Pull up the templates list from the menu and tap the info button to find the “Edit Template” option.
Apple didn’t stop there. Templates can also be shared publicly via iCloud, so you can share your favorite templates with family and friends or even find templates others have shared publicly.
