How to Customize the Look of Your Reminders Lists in iOS

In iOS 13, Apple overhauled the interface of its Reminders app and added some new functions that make it a lot more competitive with rival third-party to-do apps.

How to Flag a Reminder on Your iPhone and iPad

In the Reminders app for iPhone and iPad that Apple updated in iOS 13, there's a new flag feature that you can use to draw your attention to specific reminders. Adding a flag to a reminder automatically places it in the Flagged smart list, which you can access from the Reminders app home screen. This helps highlight the reminder for you so you don't forget it, without necessarily using a notification. In this way, flagging a reminder is different to giving it a priority, which adds exclamation marks to a reminder and reorganizes it in a list based on priority level. To add a flag to a reminder in a list you created, tap its name under My Lists. Tap the reminder. Tap the flag icon in the quick toolbar above the virtual keyboard. Tap it again to remove the flag. Alternatively, tap the info ("i") button alongside the reminder to open the Details screen, then toggle the switch next to Flagged to turn it on or off.

How to Turn Off Daily Cash Notifications on Your iPhone

One of the perks of Apple Card's rewards system is "Daily Cash," where Apple pays out your cash back bonuses on a daily basis rather than making you wait weeks for it to show up on a credit card statement. There's no limit to how much Daily Cash that you can earn with Apple Card, and if you've set up Apple Cash, it's added automatically to the virtual Apple Cash card that lives in the Wallet app on your iPhone (otherwise it's paid on a monthly basis as a credit on your statement balance).
