Dear Community,


do other people also have trouble with syncing the reminders app via iCloud?


Thanks for any help!

    I would think that it is quite possible that a small number of people do have difficulty syncing reminders, personally I never have.

    Ok thanks!

    Are you having trouble with syncing reminders yourself, is there anything that we can assist you with.

    Well, if I typ in a remind on my iPhone 4S (iOS 7.0.2), the iPad 3 (iOS 7.0.2) does not get this remind by push sync from iCloud. I have to change something at the reminders (existing on the iPad), f.ex. "Call Jim" -> "Call Jim!", in order to sync the new remind from the iPhone to the iPad an vice-versa.

    First check that all your settings are correct, that reminders syncing (calendars on a computer) is checked on all devices (system preferences > iCloud on a mac and settings > iCloud on a iPhone, iPad or iPod).


    Make sure the reminders you are adding are added to your 'iCloud' account and not an 'On My Mac', 'On My Phone'  or other non iCloud account (you can do this by checking in accounts on an iOS device by tapping the icon with three lines in the top left corner of the screen, or the right side panel by clicking on the small triangle to the right of the word 'Reminders' in iCal on a computer), non iCloud reminders will not sync.


    If you are sure that everything is set up correctly and your reminders are in the iCloud group, you might try unchecking reminders syncing (calendars syncing on a computer) in the iCloud settings, restarting your device and then re-enabling reminders syncing.

    O.K., i used the reminders app with iOS 6 without any issues. Everything was/is set up via iCloud. I even tried to unable and enable the iCould Reminders syncing. With no success.

    I gave you instructions for older software there, I'm sorry. But it sounds as though you got the idea. Unfortunately, that works for most users and I don't have another suggestion.

    I have to jump in and state my case, as well. The very reason I'm seeing this post is due to Reminders sync issues.


    I also have latency in or lack of full syncing within Reminders across multiple iOS 7 devices and Macs, all in iCloud (although there is one category for my office Exchange account, but not the problem here). A task, that shows on all 3 devices, I can mark completed on my iPhone; however, it does not show as completed on my iPad, even several hours after I've marked the task and with Reminders opened for several minutes (5-10). Other times, it will show as completed only to later return as not completed on another device.


    All quite strange and disconcerting. I've reset all 3 devices (iPhone 5, iPad 3, MacBook Pro 2011) but still have these issues. Add to this the sporadic nature of the occurences, and it seems hard to pinpoint where the problem originates and/or which device usually has the issue.

    I'm having the same issue where I'm completing a reminder on my desktop or on my iphone, but it won't sync amoung all my devices. I have to go in a clear all my reminders everywhere they are synced.


    I've tried all the suggestions, but it is still not working.
