How To Delete All Reminders on the iPhone

In this article, we’ll discuss how to delete all reminders on the iPhone. Plus, we’ll dive into other handy features you can use.

How To Delete All Reminders on the iPhone

  1. Open the Reminders app.
  2. Tap on the list you want to delete.
  3. Tap “Edit.”
  4. Select the list you want to delete.
  5. Tap “Delete.”
  6. All reminders from the list will be deleted, along with reminders from related lists.
  7. Repeat the process for other lists. Keep in mind that by deleting a whole list, you’ll delete both the completed and the uncompleted reminders.

You can also delete all reminders through iCloud:

  1. Open iCloud.
  2. Find “Reminders.”
  3. Select the list you want to delete.
  4. Tap “Options.”
  5. Tap “Delete.”

It’s important to note that by deleting reminders from your iPhone, you’re also deleting them from iCloud and any other synced devices.

How To Delete All Completed Reminders on the iPhone

Unfortunately, there is no “Delete all” button in Reminders. However, there is a way to delete them using the Shortcuts app.

Shortcuts is another app developed by Apple that allows you to write scripts to perform certain actions on your device. This app allows you to create scripts for Reminders, too. Here’s how you can use it:

  1. Download the pre-configured shortcut here.
  2. Install it in the Shortcuts app.
  3. If you see a pop-up message saying you can’t install the shortcut, follow these steps:
    • Go to Settings.
    • Tap “Shortcuts.”
    • Switch the toggle next to “Allow Untrusted Shortcuts.”
    • Tap “Allow.”
    • Enter your password.
    • Add the shortcut to the app.

If you want, you can create your own shortcut instead of using a pre-configured one:

  1. Open Shortcuts and go to “My Shortcuts” tab.
  2. Tap the plus sign at the top-right corner and then tap “Add action.”
  3. Search for “Find Reminders” and select it.
  4. Tap “Add filter.”
  5. Tap “List.”
  6. Tap “Is Completed” and tap the plus sign again.
  7. Tap “Remove Reminders.”
  8. Tap “Next” at the top-right corner. Name your shortcut and customize its color if you want.
  9. Tap “Done.”
  10. Run the shortcut by tapping it. You’ll see a pop-up message informing you about the number of completed reminders you have. Tap “Remove.”

All the completed reminders will be deleted. Keep in mind this is a permanent action, and you can’t undo it.

How To Delete Multiple Old Reminders on the iPhone

  1. Open the Reminders app.
  2. Tap “Edit” at the top-right corner.
  3. You’ll see a minus sign on the left of every reminder. Select the ones you want to delete.
  4. Tap “Delete.”

How To Delete All Reminders on the iPhone Calendar

Apple’s Calendar app allows you to enter different reminders directly into the calendar. You can enter them manually or by syncing with another device. If you want to delete all reminders, you need to delete both the manual and the synced data.

Apple doesn’t have a “Delete all” button in the Calendar app, so if you want to delete Calendar reminders, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to Settings and tap “Mail, Contacts, Calendars.”
  2. Tap on each account that includes a calendar and tap “Off” next to “Calendars.”
  3. Tap “Delete from my iPhone.”
  4. Connect your iPhone to the computer with a USB cable and open iTunes.
  5. Choose your device under “Devices.”
  6. Tap “Summary” and then tap “Info.”
  7. Uncheck “Sync Calendars With.”
  8. Tap “Apply” and go back to the Calendar to see the remaining entries.
  9. Select an entry and tap “Delete event.” You’ll see a pop-up message asking you if you want to delete all future events. Tap “Delete All Future Events.” All reminders of the same kind will be deleted.
  10. Repeat if necessary.

Organize Yourself With Reminders

Apple’s Reminders app is a great way to ensure that you don’t forget about the important and less important things you need to do. Although this app has many helpful features, it stores all reminders until you decide to delete them. Learning how to get rid of them on the iPhone is important because it allows you to free up more storage space and organize your app.
