How to Recover Deleted Reminders on iPhone

Problem: "I got a little carried away and deleted quite a few reminders by mistake. Since I have updated iCloud backup I figured I would just restore from my last backup. However after the restore was complete, it appears that Reminders are not backed up/restored. Is there a way to get reminders back on iphone?"

Quite a few users encounter such a issue: Reminders on iPhone disappeared. Thus, today, we will discuss how to recover reminder on iPhone.

Creating, setting and scheduling reminders on your iPhone can help you a lot in getting yourself be reminded at all times about any important activity you have for the day. But what if one or all your reminders suddenly went missing from your phone?

iOS is a powerful operating system that serves as the exclusive backbone of all Apple devices, but even with this kind of technology, it can still have cases of sudden data loss as well.

For your deleted reminders, the first possible cause we can take a look at is if you recently restored your iPhone back to its default factory settings, with the goal of solving another issue.

Restoring default factory settings will wipe out all the data and files you have on your iPhone. It is also possible that doing an iOS 11/12/13 upgrade might have caused the issue to happen, as some users noted that this activity had produced issues of missing files from their iPhone devices as well.

The worst case of all that could happen when your Apple device automatically syncs with your iCloud account. In this case, when reminders get deleted from your phone, and the phone triggers its next auto-sync to iCloud, those same reminders will also be deleted from iCloud.

Discovering that all your reminders got deleted can easily ruin your day, especially if you’re a busy person and you don’t have free time to recreate those reminders again with the same details they previously have.

The only solution to this is to restore your deleted reminders back to your iPhone through restoring your backup files from iCloud, using its own facility to restore them.

What to Do When Accidentally Deleted Reminders on iPhone?

Lost all reminders on iPhone? The most common fix to bring back your deleted reminders is to get the last backup performed on your iCloud. Every iPhone device needs you to have an Apple account, but not all iPhone users activate their backup and sync settings between their phones and their iCloud accounts. If you regularly backup all your phone’s contents to iCloud, we can get this issue resolved easier and faster.

To restore your deleted reminders, sign in to your iCloud account and proceed to the Settings page (the one with the gear icon). Scroll down to the bottom part of the page and see the Advanced section, which lists down options to restore files, contacts, calendars, reminders, and bookmarks. In our case, choose “Restore Calendars and Reminders”.

Since this tool offers restoration of both events created from your Calendar and Reminders applications, all current sharing information, settings, and events recorded to your iPhone will be removed or canceled because we are restoring an archived version that doesn’t have these current settings.

But Apple will also archive your current calendar and reminder information in the process. Just select an archive and click “Restore” to start syncing it back to your iPhone device.

Most people can immediately solve this problem by just getting the last backup of their reminders from iCloud.

However, for people who haven’t performed any backup yet, retrieving back their lost reminders will not get solved right away. In this case, we got your hand through the help of FoneDog Toolkit – iOS Data Recovery!
