Reminders don’t have to look boring or monotonous. Using some fun-loving emojis and matching symbols, you can make your alerts appear lively. Apart from making alerts appear striking, they will also play a key role in keeping everything perfectly organized. If that’s exactly what you are missing, let’s learn how you can customize apple reminders lists with emojis and symbols in iOS 14 and iPadOS 14.

Customize Apple Reminders Lists with Emojis and Symbols

With iOS 13, Apple vastly improved the stock reminders app for iPhone and iPad. One of the highlights was the ability to add colored icons which made it a tad easier to spot lists and keep them organized.

And with the introduction of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14, Apple has further enhanced the appearance aspect, allowing users to personalize lists with a ton of emojis and symbols. From what I can tell, this implementation looks pretty neat.

1. Launch Reminders app on your iPhone or iPad and then head over to the list.
