Easily Create and Name Reminders Lists to Use Them Via Siri

My wife and I have a shared list in the Reminders app called Groceries. To add an item, such as eggs, all we do is say “Hey Siri, add eggs to my grocery list.” and Siri adds it to the list. We can go a step further and set the grocery list as the default list, then we do not have to specify which list to add the eggs too, it’ll add them to the Grocery list by default. How can you see which list is your default list? It’s in Settings > Reminders > Default List. Want to get fancy? Make a list called “Hardware,” and then tell Siri, “Add birdseed to my Hardware list, and remind me when I arrive at Home Depot.” You may have to pick the correct Home Depot location from a list, but then you’ll receive an alert reminding you to buy birdseed when you pull into the parking lot. To look at any list via Siri, just say something like “Show my Grocery list.”
