How to add Location Based Alerts in iPhone Reminders

Whether it’s picking up milk from a nearby store or dropping something to a specific place, the Reminders app on iOS devices makes everything easy. If you are someone that often gets assigned a lot of work but you have a bad memory like me then this app on your iPhone can come in handy.

The Reminders app on the iPhone brings in a lot of amazing features and thanks to this users don’t really switch to third party apps and save a lot of space on their device. It also gives Location-Based alerts to its users which means that if a person has added a task on a specific place in the Map, he will get reminded for that when he enters or leaves that place. In this guide, we’ll show you how you can set your own location-based alerts on iPhone so let’s get started.
