How to print a list from Reminders on iPhone, iPad and Mac

By

It’s finally possible to print a list from the Reminders app if you’re running Apple’s latest software updates on your iPhone, iPad and Mac. There’s no need to copy and paste your tasks somewhere else — just hit the print button.

We’ll show you where to find it.

Apple first introduced the Reminders app in late 2011, so it has taken nearly nine years for the company to add a simple print feature. That’s rather baffling when you think about it. But at least the wait is over now.

So long as you’ve updated to iOS 14.5, iPadOS 14.5 or macOS 11.3, you can now print directly from the Reminders app. Here’s how.

Reminders is better in iOS 14.5 and macOS 11.3

The ability to print lists is one of a couple of nice improvements Apple made to Reminders in its latest updates. The other is a simple organization tool that lets you sort lists by due date, priority, and more.
