How to Mark Task Complete in Reminders App on iPad and iPhone

Watching a considerable to-do list getting smaller is one of the most satisfying things for a user who relies on a reminder a lot. The reminder is an underrated app on the smartphone. However, every user doesn’t use it. Although, whoever uses the Reminders app knows how it works, and its advantage. Reminder keeps you updated about your tasks and events. It lets you remember significant events and functions. You just have to set up the date of a particular event or task, remind you until you complete it. However, after completing the assignment or attending the event, it is also essential to remove the reminder. Most users who use the Reminders app on their iPad and iPhone don’t know how to remove the added reminder after finishing.

Removing the added reminder is easy to work. You just have to choose a finished reminder and move to its settings section. Marking the reminders is one option in the Reminders app that you can use to remove the added reminders. You can also hide the finished task from your to-do list, or you can delete it once and for all. So to do it, here is what you need to follow.
