Over time I end up with a lot of completed reminders, and I haven't found an easy way to delete them out. Right now I have to go into each reminder and delete it - something that is particularly cumbersome on the iPad, but easier on the iPhone.

Is there an easy way to delete completed reminders, or have it do that automatically?


There is an option in Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars

You can set it to only Sync Reminders 2 Weeks Back

That's the lowest value you can set.

  • Hmm. I had it set to one month back, but it seemed like it still had reminders that were more then one month old in there. Thanks. I'll try two weeks, and hopefully that will work. – bassplayer7 Jun 18 '12 at 13:33
  • I've just checked and I have completed reminders from February even though I also have "2 weeks back" selected. So it looks like it only work for "current" reminders, not completed ones. – Loïc Wolff Jun 18 '12 at 13:59
  • That's what I was a little concerned about. I doubt that the completed reminders take up that much space, it just bothers me having them there. – bassplayer7 Jun 18 '12 at 14:03
