To get automatic birthday reminders on your iPhone, you can follow these steps:
- Open the Contacts app on your iPhone.
- Find and select the contact for whom you want to set up a birthday reminder.
- Once you’re on the contact’s details page, tap on the “Edit” button in the top-right corner of the screen.
- Scroll down to find the “Add Birthday” option and tap on it.
- Set the contact’s birthdate by selecting the month, day, and year.
- After setting the birthdate, tap on “Done” to save the changes.
- Now, open the Calendar app on your iPhone.
- Tap on the “Calendars” tab at the bottom center of the screen.
- Under the “Other” section, you should see a toggle switch next to “Birthdays.” Make sure it is turned on by tapping on the switch.
- Once the “Birthdays” calendar is enabled, your iPhone will automatically generate reminders for the birthdays you have added to your contacts.
You can customize the birthday reminders further by going to the Settings app, selecting “Calendar,” and then choosing “Birthdays.” From there, you can adjust the alert settings, such as the time before the event when you want to receive the reminder.
With these steps, you’ll have automatic birthday reminders set up on your iPhone, ensuring you never miss an important occasion.
