Share lists using Reminders app from iPhone and iPad

Here's how you can share lists - todo, shopping, etc. - using the Reminders app on your iPhone and iPad in a few easy steps.

Share Lists with Someone Directly from the Reminders App Using Your iPhone or iPad

The Reminders app is way powerful than you think. Once you start to share your lists, only then you start to realize how useful Reminders is all of a sudden. For example, you create a shared list of things to do with people and they can start to chip in their ideas at the same time, add notes to what's already there and so on. And if you want to learn how to share lists using the Reminders app, then you will be surprised to learn how easy it is on both iPhone and iPad.

Share Lists Using Reminders App

Note: Please make sure that the Reminders toggle switch is turned on and it is working with iCloud. You can make sure by going to Settings > Apple ID > iCloud and check the Reminders switch. Make sure it's turned on.

Step 1. Launch the Reminders app from your Home Screen.

Step 2. You can either share an existing list with someone or create a new one if you like. If you want to create a new list which you want to share, tap on the 'Add List' button on the bottom right hand corner, give it a name, choose a color and then tap on Done on the top right.

Step 3. Now tap and hold on the list name and then tap on Share List.

Step 4. You now have a bunch of options through which you can share this list with anyone to join and edit. For the sake of this guide I'm using the Messages option. You can choose any option you like.

Step 5. Once the request has been sent and accepted on the other end, the name of the person will appear under the list. You can obviously share the list with multiple people if you like.

Want to un-share the list? Here's how you do it.

Step 1. Tap and hold on the shared list and then tap on Manage Shared List.

Step 2. You can either remove individual people from the list by swiping left on them and then tap on 'Remove' or you can stop sharing the list altogether by tapping on Stop Sharing. It's entirely your choice.

You've now mastered the art of sharing a list using the Reminders app using your iPhone or iPad. Of course, the shared lists will appear on your Mac as well, because you know, "ecosystem."
