As we’ve said before, Apple’s Reminders app is actually a hidden gem that many users don’t take a close enough look at due to its deceptively plain and simple nature. Granted, it’s not an app for anybody with serious project management needs, but for many people it can get the job done without getting in the way.
However, there’s also no doubt that Apple hasn’t yet done as much with the app as it could; it’s really evolved very little beyond its humble beginnings in iOS 5. The good news is that it looks like this will finally change in iOS 13, with Apple expected to beef it up to make it a better option for those with more sophisticated task management needs.
The new Reminders app is expected to gain a main screen with four default sections laid out in a grid that will allow users to see at a glance tasks that need to be done today, all tasks, scheduled tasks, and flagged tasks, accompanied by differently-colored pages that users can add items to. No other details are yet known, but reading between the lines it looks like Reminders may be a completely redesigned app, and while we’re excited to see what it will offer, we’re hoping that Apple doesn’t sacrifice its elegant simplicity in the process.
