What settings are enabled for iCloud on your devices?

Issuing time: 2022-09-24

If you're having trouble getting your reminders to sync between your iPhone and Mac, there are a few things you can check. First, make sure that the reminders settings on both devices are set to sync automatically. If they're not, you may need to enable iCloud syncing on each device. Additionally, be sure that your devices are connected to the same network—if they're not, the reminder data will not be able to transfer properly. Finally, if you've changed either device's time zone recently, make sure that the other device has updated its time as well. If all of these steps fail to resolve the issue, it might be best to contact Apple support for help troubleshooting synchronization issues.

On which device do you create the reminders?

There are a few different ways to create reminders on your iPhone or Mac.

  1. On the iPhone, you can use the Reminders app.
  2. You can use the Calendar app on your Mac to create reminders.
  3. You can also create reminders using an external calendar service like Google Calendar or iCloud Calendar.
  4. Finally, you can also create reminders using Siri on your iPhone or Apple Watch.
  5. Regardless of how you create your reminders, they will sync between all of your devices if you have iCloud enabled.

Do the reminders get created in the correct list?

If you have an iPhone and a Mac, your reminders may not be syncing between the devices. iphone reminders are stored in the "Reminders" app on your phone, while Mac reminders are stored in the "Reminders" app on your computer. You can try to sync the reminder lists by following these steps:

If after following these steps your reminders still aren't syncing, there may be a problem with either device's reminder list.

  1. Open the "Reminders" app on your iPhone.
  2. Click the "Sync Reminders" button at the bottom of the screen.
  3. On your Mac, open the "Reminders" app and click the "Sync Reminders" button at the top of the screen. If you don't see this button, make sure that you have installed iCloud on your Mac and signed in to iCloud with your Apple ID account.

Have you tried restarting both devices?

There could be a few reasons why your reminders might not be syncing between your iPhone and Mac. One possibility is that you might have turned off sync for the reminders in each device's settings. You can check this by opening the Settings app on your iPhone or Mac, going to General, and then tapping Sync Memories. If you turn off sync for reminders, they won't automatically update when they're due on either device.

Another potential issue is that your devices might not be connected to the same iCloud account. If you use iCloud to keep all of your devices in sync, make sure that both your iPhone and Mac are signed into the same account and that the devices are close enough to each other so that they can connect to each other wirelessly (for example, within 30 feet). If neither of these things solves the problem, it might be worth trying resetting both devices: On your iPhone, go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. On your Mac, open System Preferences > Security & Privacy > General > Reset Password. This will erase everything on both devices and start them from scratch.

If none of these solutions work, it's possible that something else is wrong with either device and you should take it into a repair shop or contact Apple support for help troubleshooting reminder issues on an individual basis.

Have you tried resetting the iCloud sync data on both devices?

There could be a number of reasons why your reminders might not be syncing between your iPhone and Mac. One possibility is that you might have turned off sync for the reminder on one device, but not the other. You can try resetting the iCloud sync data on both devices to see if that resolves the issue. If not, you may need to check with Apple support to see if there's anything else you can do to get your reminders syncing properly.

What version of iOS/macOS is installed on your devices?

There are a few reasons why your reminders might not be syncing between your iPhone and Mac.

First, make sure that you're using the same version of iOS or macOS on both devices. If you're using an older version of iOS or macOS, your reminders may not sync properly.

Second, make sure that your devices are connected to the same network. If they're not connected to the same network, then your reminders may not sync properly.

Finally, if you've disabled automatic synchronization of reminders between devices in iCloud settings on either device, then your reminders may not sync properly. You can enable automatic synchronization of reminders in iCloud settings on either device by following these steps:

-Open Settings on your iPhone and tap on General ->iCloud ->Auto-Sync Reminders .

-On the same screen, open Settings on your Mac and click on System Preferences -> iCloud . Under "Reminders" , make sure that "Automatic Synchronization" is enabled.

Is there enough free storage space on your devices for iCloud to work properly?

Your iPhone and Mac may not be able to sync reminders if there is not enough free storage space on your devices. iCloud can help you keep track of your reminders even if they are not stored locally on your device.

Are both WiFi and Bluetooth turned on and working correctly on both devices?

On macOS Sierra 10 Yosemite or later: Go into System Preferences > iCloud . In iCloud , click on Contacts & Calendars . Clicking Contacts & Calendars should bring up a list of all of your existing contact information in iCalendar format (or whatever other calendar software you might use). Double-click any entry in this list (or select multiple entries) so that they all become highlighted in yellow coloration . Now press Command + K (Mac) / Ctrl + K (PC) simultaneously until a window pops up asking which kind of keyboard shortcut you want to use - choose 'Open With...'. From here just type 'calendar' into the text field at the top left corner of this new window , hit Return/Enter key once again ,and presto! Your iPad should now show all upcoming appointments from whichever calendar software(s) was selected when Contacts & Calendars was opened earlier - including those which were added after Bluetooth was turned ON earlier today! You can now also delete any appointment from either device without affecting anything else related back to that particular date/time combination!

  1. If you're using an iPhone and your Mac is connected to the same WiFi network, make sure that both devices are on the same page with regards to time. iphone reminders should automatically sync with your Mac's Calendar, but this may not always be the case if your iPhone or Mac are out of sync by a few minutes. To check whether or not your reminders are syncing correctly, open the Settings app on your iPhone and look for "Reminders" under "Time & Date." If all of your reminder entries show up in chronological order, then they're probably syncing correctly. However, if some entries are out of order or missing altogether, then you'll need to fix the issue on either device before it will properly sync reminders between them.
  2. If you're using an iPad and your Mac is connected to the same WiFi network, make sure that both devices have been configured to share calendars and contacts. This can be done by opening System Preferences on your Mac and clicking on " iCloud." Under "iCloud," make sure that both calendars and contacts are enabled for sharing. Once these settings have been made, any new appointments or contact additions will automatically be added to both devices' calendars. However, if there's a conflict between what's being shown in each calendar (for example, one calendar shows a meeting scheduled for 9am while another shows it as happening at 10am), then you'll need to resolve the conflict manually before it will properly sync reminders between them.
  3. If you're using an iPad and your Mac is not connected to the same WiFi network, Bluetooth must first be turned on between both devices before Reminders can be synchronized between them. To do this: On iOS 11: Open Settings -> General -> Bluetooth And turn ON Bluetooth .

Have you waited a few minutes after creating a new reminder to see if it syncs over to the other device?

If not, make sure that your Apple ID and password are correct in the Reminders app on your iPhone and Mac. If you're still having trouble syncing reminders, please reach out to our support team for assistance.
