Reminders is a great app that comes preinstalled on iPhone. It can be triggered by the specific time or the location you set, so that your iPhone can automatically remind you of the things that need to be done when the reminders are due, or when you reach or leave a certain place.

However, there are times when you accidentally delete reminders that keep track of the stuff that hasn't been done or mistakenly remove the whole list that keep various reminders organized. For those who have something important to do, the top priority is to recover deleted reminders on iPhone as soon as possible.

Here are a few things you can do on your iPhone to retrieve reminders.

1. Restore reminders from iCloud on iPhone

2. Retrieve reminders on iPhone with file recovery software

Of course, not everyone has iCloud backup available to get back lost reminders to iPhone. If that is the case, you can use a third-party iPhone reminder recovery app to scan the device's storage for hunting the reminders that are recoverable.

There are a couple of such applications in the market, but the one we prefer is called iOS Data Recovery. It will allow you to restore reminders, along with voice memos, contacts, photos, messages, call history, videos etc. Thanks to its filtering options, it is easy to locate the deleted items for each data type and gives you full control over what files to be recovered.
