It seems that the badge count is stuck on 2.


I have deleted items in Reminders. I have added items. I have closed the app and relaunched. The badge count is stuck at 2.

    I too have the same issue but on my iPhone 4 running iOS 6, which happened right after the upgrade.  Seems like a rare situation as no one talk much about this yet, not even when i did a google search outside this forum.

    Same here on the spouse's 4s after iOS6 upgrade.


    She has never used reminders, there are no items, but the count is stuck on "3"

    Same problem here. Badge count stuck on 2, with nothing in the lists. I have a 3Gs, and this happened after the iOS6 upgrade as well.

    I am now at the Apple store and the nice folk at Genius Bar help me re-locate 2 very old reminders, which are somehow "hidden" from plain view.  Anyway he fixed it... 2 thumbs up; so i guess you folks too have to book an appointment with the Genius Bar to get rid of those stuck tag :-)

    It seems that this update "hid" any previously created lists that were local to the device.


    Here is how to fix your badges. 


    Open Reminders

    In the search box type a single letter  - example C

    You will see a list of all your reminders, even the hidden ones, that have that letter as the first letter of any of their words. 

    Any uncompleted ones should be on top.

    Either mark them as Completed or if they are still pending, move them to a new list.


    You may have to repeat this with several different letters until you find your task(s) that are causing  the badge icon to be wrong.

    Sounds like there are two issues here. One is that if you have hidden items, you have to clear them out to get your badges to start working. The other, though, is an open bug where the badges won't live update as reminders pop up. This one is yet unsolved.


    Apple- can someone help out with this? I've filed a bug report but gotten no response. Please let us know anything we can do to help identify the cause. Thanks!
