Reminders list

iOS and iPadOS


Since the update to Ios 14.2 I can't create a list of reminders. I am using Voiceover.
Can anyone give me a hint how to do?
What happens is that when I tap to add a new list, not reminder I cant get into the field to write a title of the list.

There appears to be an issue with the onscreen keyboard when attempting to give a new list a name or rename an existing list.

When entering the text field for the list name, the onscreen keyboard will briefly appear, but disappear again before it's possible to access or use it.

I don't have access to a bluetooth keyboard to test, but it's *possible* that using one of these will allow access to the text field.

Regardless, this is a nasty bug, so I've reported it to Apple.

I tested bluetooth keyboard but it doesn't works. The field disappear even when I use it. I tested to create a list through as a workaround but it seems that it not work and I must use Ios.

Hello Everyone. I read through this thread and decided to see if SIRI could save the day. Yes, he certainly did. Here are the steps that I did.

Activate SIRI. Say create new reminders list. SIRI asked what I wanted to call the new list. I gave it a name. Then SIRI asked me what reminder I wanted to add to the list. I created a reminder. I double checked in the Reminders app, to ensure that he was an obedient AI and, yes, the new list was there and the new reminder was inserted into the new list.

This should help fill the gap, until the bug is resolved.

Thankyou for your tip. Last time I tested with siri it doesn't work so I must have done something wrong. Now it works fine.
