How to use the Reminders app on iPhone and iPad with Family Sharing

If you’re using Family Sharing, you can share reminders with everyone in your group. From shopping list items to household chores, packing lists to game day tasks, shared reminders are a great way to keep the whole family organized and engaged on their iPhones and other Apple devices.

How Family Sharing works

Family Sharing is a great way to share apps, Apple Store purchases, and photo albums, but did you realize it’s also a great way to keep everyone in the family organized? You can share calendars, reminders, and to-do lists so that everyone stays on track. If you haven’t set up Family Sharing yet, you can find out how to do it here.

How to add tasks to a family list

  1. Launch the Reminders app on iPhone and iPad.

The Family List is automatically created for you and everyone in your group as soon as you enable Family Sharing. So, as long as you use that list, creating shared reminders is just as easy as creating a regular reminder.

How to view participants in the Family list

Want to make sure everyone in the family sees your reminders on their own iPhones? Easy! Just do the following:

  1. Tap on Family from the main list view in the Reminders app.
  2. Tap on the three dots in the upper right corner.
  3. Tap View Participants to see all of the family members that are receiving family reminders.

    View participants: Tap on Family from the main list, Tap on the three dots, Tap View participants.

  1. Tap on Family from the main list view in the Reminders app.
  2. Tap on the three dots in the upper right corner.
  3. Tap Delete List and then confirm by tapping Delete again.
