Apple’s iOS 13 rollout in the form of significant iCloud Reminders problems has struck another roadblock. Since last week’s launch of Apple’s mobile OS update, some customers have reported issues attempting to sync notes to the revamped Reminders app that Apple has redesigned to feature a fresh look and feel and some more solid organisational characteristics this year. Other users report missing lists or deleted reminders, names of lists resetting to defaults, dates and times that are not correctly transferred, and other synchronization mistakes.
Even Apple itself acknowledges that reminders will not synchronize correctly across systems unless the recent software is running on every single device you use. Yes, this involves macOS Catalina, which is not yet out, if you want to use the partner Mac app to verify your reminders.
Real Also: iOS 13 has a Security flaw
Apple says you’ll be able to access your complete Reminders list over at iCloud.com. The company also created a unique safeguard for users running iOS 13 that allows you to delay fully upgrading the Reminders app until after macOS Catalina is out.
Have a look at the below pics:
“Updated reminders are not compatible with previous variants of iOS and MacOS. If you upgrade your reminders to iOS 13 on your iPhone, your iPad and Mac using the same iCloud account will not be able to access your reminders until iPadOS and macOS 10.15 Catalina are accessible, “says Apple’s Reminders Redesign Support page. But Apple doesn’t mention the other problems that appear to be the consequence of bugs.
Here are Tweets about this issue:
For some reason, however, I too am no longer able to access newly created mobile reminders when I log into iCloud.com. So it looks like this issue may be eventually resolved only after Apple irons out the kinks with yet another iOS 13 update, on top of the macOS Catalina release that promises to fix syncing.
Although Reminders may not be the most common native iOS app, it’s another bruise on Apple’s bug-ridden iOS 13 launch. The firm pushed the release of iOS 13.1 previously this month, presumably to get a more stable version of the OS in the hands of customers as quickly as possible and to safeguard against lockscreen exploits.
And since the 13.1 launch on September 24th, Apple has updated the software twice — to iOS 13.1.1 and today’s iOS 13.1.2—to continue squashing bugs.
Hopefully, given all these compounding issues, Apple moves quickly to continue patching up iOS 13. And users of Reminders will be stuck without desktop synchronization and possibly a whole host of other problems if they passed the update process too soon.
