    Pre 11.1 behavior:

    A reminder that becomes overdue stays in the "Scheduled" tab at the top of the list, no matter what day the reminder was set to. This way, if I could not accomplish a task, it was at the top of the list the next day.

    11.1 behavior:

    Overdue reminders don't appear on the "Scheduled" tab. Instead they go to the "Reminders" tab. Worse yet, they get pushed to the BOTTOM of the list! I have so many reminders, that seeing this overdue reminder is not easy!

    Another thing is I always look at the "Scheduled" tab because it separates the reminders by day, for a clearer understanding of my week. It's much easier to see the things I couldn't do previously, and the things to come! Apple, why did you "fix" something that wasn't broken?!

    Anyone else notice this, have a fix, or know if they are going to revert to the old behavior on the next update?

    My iOS 11.1 Reminders app doesn’t have a “Reminders” tab…your must have a list named “Reminders”.

    I have two overdue reminders showing under “Today” at the top in the “Scheduled” list.

    With what service are your reminders syncing?

    This.

    I have seen odd Reminders behaviour when using some 3rd party tools (eg. wrong alert times/dates, duplicate entries, date/time field dropped). Not to say all 3rd party apps are troublesome, just that some are.

    Oh and: I don't use the stock Reminders app, but it appears to be working correctly on my 11.1.1 install.

    I'm using apple's iCloud. If you leave an overdue reminder untouched, does it remain at the top of the "Today" list in "Scheduled"? Or does it appear on another list?

    It stays in the "Today" section at the top of the "Scheduled" list. Reminder name in black font and the scheduled date/time in red font underneath.

    How do the troublesome reminders appear in Reminders on a Mac or at the iCloud web site?

    You might want to sign out of iCloud and then sign back in if you haven't tried that already.
