How To Set Up Your iPhone Reminders

In today’s post I’m going to show how to get the most out of your iPhone reminders. Timed reminders never really work for me because I can never predict where I am going to be and at what time. That’s why I love iPhone’s reminders. It uses your GPS location and can remind you when you are near a place to do something. One thing I tend to always forget is to pick up dog food on my way home. So that’s going to be the example for today. If any of you know Miss Tea Tea, you know she is not one to mess with. If she is unhappy, then we all are unhappy.

This may seem like a lot of steps, but it is way quicker than getting home and realizing that you need to go back to the store. Follow my yellow clues in my pics.

First thing you’re going to do is to put Petco in your contact list. make sure you put in the address. The easiest way to do that is to go to maps and search for Petco. Press the little blue arrow like in picture below and then add to contacts. Yay!

Go into reminders and create reminder Dog Food. After you create it, click on it.

Now we’re going to click on Remind me

Switch “At a Location” to “ON’, Check “When I Arrive”, and then press Current Location.

Press Choose Address 

Now just scroll and select Petco 

Now verify everything is correct and then click done. 

I know it seems like a lot of steps but it takes less than a minute and is well worth it. It’ll ring when I am about 2 blocks away from Petco which gives me ample time to signal, slow, and turn. Miss Tea Tea is a happy girl and that is a relief!
