BoeyUpdated by Boey Wong / Feb 22, 2021 10:00

I accidentally deleted reminders on iPhone and couldn't recall what they are. Since I have updated iCloud backup and also backed up to my laptop I figured I would just restore from my last backup. However after the restore was complete, the reminders are still not there. Is there anyone has any ideas how to get reminders back on iPhone?
