I have an iPad dedicated to office work. I usually use my iPad to remind me of some important things in case of forgetting. But yesterday, my child played with the iPad when I was not paying attention. After I had the iPad back, I found some important reminders in the iPad were gone. How to recover deleted reminders on iPad?

As mentioned above, many people use iPad for office work. Due to the busy work, we need to type some important content into the iPad and set corresponding time to remind us.


By accident or system upgrade, we easily lose these reminders. Or sometimes, for some reason, you want to review your old reminders. But it is difficult for you to get them back.

Maybe you know the iTunes and iCloud can help you recover reminders if you have backed up your iPad with iTunes or iCloud. But there is a painful problem that the all existing data in your iPad, not just reminders, will be replaced by your backup.

If you think this problem is not very serious, just go to restore iPad from iCloud backup and iTunes. I’m not going into details anymore.

You may not have heard about the means to restore your reminders without changing the other data on your iPad. It’s to recover on the official iCloud site, if the iCloud Backup function on your phone is open.

Now, let me tell you how to use this function.

At the first, I must make sure that you have opened iCloud Backup. Below is a demonstration with clear instruction.

Tap Settings > iCloud > iCloud Backup on your iPad.

Look at the On-Off switch on the right and turn on Backup.

A prompt Turning on Backup will appear. Just wait for the iCloud backup to open.

We will see the blue words Back Up Now, then tap it.

Wait for the backup process to complete.

Afterward, iCloud backup will occur automatically when this iPad is plugged-in, locked and connected to WLAN.

If you have ever done that and kept the mentioned Backup Switch on, then you can restore reminders from iCloud website.


1. How to Recover Reminders on iPad from iCloud Site

Enter the iCloud websiteLink out icon.

You will see the backup history for calendars and reminders. Pick the most likely one, depending on the date of each backup.

Click Restore and wait for a while.

Now, the whole recovery process is done. Maybe, you have noted the similar problem: the archive of calendars and reminders you have selected will replace calendars and reminders on all your devices and your current calendars and reminders will be archived.

If you still want that to happen or you haven't found your reminders yet, the only way is to use the third-party software.
