So if you’ve always wanted to add just a little extra context to your reminders, here’s how to add notes, URLs, and images to reminders in iOS 13:

Add Images to a Reminder

  • Create a new reminder. Tap on the camera icon above the keyboard. Choose whether you want to take a photo, choose an image from the gallery, or scan a document.
  • I’m going to choose ‘Take a Photo’. Once you’ve taken the photo, tap on ‘Use Photo’. The reminder will be saved and the image will be displayed under the reminder. Neat, right?

Give Your Reminders Context with Images, Notes, and Hyperlinks

With the ability to add contextual information like notes and images to reminders, iOS 13 does make the Reminders app a lot more useful than it was before. Personally, I don’t add images or hyperlinks to reminders very often, but I do find it handy to add notes to my reminders in a lot of situations. My most common use case for that is adding a shopping list to a reminder without having to make the reminder itself very long. So, how are you liking the new Reminders app in iOS 13? Do you use it often or are you still counting on a third party reminders app to handle your to-do lists? Let me know in the comments.
