    Is anyone else super excited to see what updates are coming to Reminders in iOS13? This screenshot in particular (attached) has me anxiously waiting for the July public beta.

    The middle mockup seems to show it reminding you of tasks associated with a person while you are messaging them. This is exciting! It seems like the app's integration into iOS might finally give us some contexts that let you know of your tasks when they're relevant, beyond just location or date-based ones.

    It seems the app will also support attachments and subtasks, which is exciting as well.

    They announced that you would get “reminders” from Reminders in messages, but didn’t mention anything else. While I am happy to see Reminders get some attention, I’m not optimistic on integration of built-in apps. Mail still doesn’t have share sheets, although drag and drop gives a similar functionality on an iPad. If you look at Safari sharing to other built-in apps, it’s not done the same way 3rd parties have to use. IMHO, 3rd party software generally does a better, more consistent job of sharing data than Apple’s. But I am looking forward to seeing Reminders in iOS 13.

    I am hoping that someday everything will be so integrated that I get notifications like: “Spouse approaching with 10 items to discuss with you.” ;)

    Sometimes I would prefer to discuss these 10 items with Reminders instead of my spouse. :D Maybe Apple should go in this direction... ;)

    Here’s a link to a solid preview of the updated app by Keep Productive on YouTube. Sounds like it will solve some of the limitations of the current Reminders app while keeping it simple and clean enough for those who do not need or want a super robust app. I’ll definitely try it out but not sure if it’ll ultimately replace Things 3 for me.

    I'll be checking out iOS 13 Reminders as soon as it's available as I've used it in the past as a GTD list manager.

    I can’t say I’m “super excited,” but I’m always interested in new options and I appreciate you bringing this to our attention (I’m an iOS user but I don’t follow news about new developments very closely).
