Last Updated on Nov 10, 2020

Reminders App has a lot to offer, all the miscellaneous tasks, important errands, attachments, and alerts can be stored in the reminder app. It took several years to bring the Widget to the home screen, but here we are. Now the Reminder Widget can be put within the applications anywhere, convenient to you. However, the major changes to the Reminder app were made earlier with iOS 13, introducing the overhauled interface, intuitive app design, etc. You don’t need any third-party reminder app or task manager when the default Reminder app is available.

In addition, using the same steps, you can add plenty of Widgets directly to the iPhone home screen, right beside the app icons. Compared with the previous iOS update, Apple has also added few more widgets, check them, and if possible try all of them.

To Find the Reminder widget and Add to Home screen, Apple Reminder App must be installed on your iPhone.
