17 Ways to Improve Your Productivity Today with the Notes, Reminders, and Calendar Apps

We can all use a bit of help fine-tuning our productivity. And technology is one way we’re able to be more productive with less stress while juggling all of our responsibilities. It’s even better when the technology's already at your disposal, which is what we strove to accomplish with our brand new Insider Guide to Productivity Apps. Get up close and personal with Apple's Notes, Reminders, and Calendar apps on your iPhone and iPad. All of these apps come with every Apple device and have a lot of useful functions for organizing your life, so why wouldn’t you use them? With a video for each tip to make learning easy, we’re excited to present the latest offering from our premium membership, iPhone Life Insider. Get a sneak preview of the new Productivity Apps Guide and learn about all the benefits of an Insider subscription below.

If you don’t know all the ways in which you can use your Notes, Calendar, and Reminders apps, then you likely won’t use them at all. But they’re just sitting on your phone, waiting to be used to their full potential. Which is why we created the Productivity Apps Guide. In 17 short videos (or three lessons), you’ll be ready to utilize each of these apps in your daily life and feel less stressed because of it! When your schedule is automated, you can relax in the full knowing that it will all get done like clockwork.

We’ll cover the huge benefits of an Insider subscription a little later; but first, we wanted to give you a preview of two of the videos you can expect to find in this guide.
