Full Story

Oh, have you heard? AppleInsider’s got the scoop again. They’re saying that with iOS 18, Apple’s planning to blend the Calendar and Reminders apps a bit. Imagine, no more flipping back and forth like a mad person trying to schedule your life away.

So, here’s the deal: With the shiny new Calendar app, which is set to drop with iOS 18 (and don’t forget macOS 15) later this year, you’ll be able to whip up a reminder without even leaving the app. Just a tap here and there in the Day, Week, or Month views, and bam! You can set a new reminder or even schedule an event. Both options pop up in the same spot on the app’s UI. Talk about a time-saver.

And when you’re adding that reminder, it’s not just a “don’t forget the milk” kind of deal. You can get fancy, adding a title and a note for that extra bit of context. Because, you know, sometimes we need a little reminder about our reminders.

Not just for iPhone users, though. If you’re on macOS 15, you’re in this cool club, too. Image credit goes to AppleInsider for that tidbit.

Now, you might be thinking, “But will these reminders act any different?” Nope. Whether you’re setting them up through the Calendar app or the old-school Reminders app, they’ll work just the same. Pick your date, time, location, and even slap a priority on it if you’re feeling organized.

The cool part? If you create a reminder in the Calendar app, it’ll show up in the Reminders app too. At least, that’s what’s happening in the pre-release version. And all the notifications? They’re still tied to the Reminders app. Neat, huh?

Oh, and get this – the Calendar app is getting a little makeover. We’re all sitting on the edge of our seats waiting to see what Apple’s got up its sleeve, not just for the Calendar and Reminders apps, but for iOS 18 as a whole. WWDC 2024 can’t come soon enough, starting June 10th. Apple’s expected to pull the curtain back on some new AI features for iOS 18 and Siri. And let’s not forget about Safari and other apps getting a boost from AI.

So, yeah. That’s the lowdown. Keep your eyes peeled for more updates. Who knows what Apple will surprise us with next?
