    Hey all,
    So I just came across this interesting bug/feature in Reminders. It also involves iCloud for iOS device and a Mac.

    In iCal on my Mac, I created a Reminder, and on the more info tab (just double clicking a Reminder), there is an option for "Due date." I thought this was the date/time you want it to remind you. But it's actually something separate from "Remind me" time/date. I noticed that when I looked at my iPhone after iCloud had updated it. On the Reminders on my iPhone, there was a new tab under "More info" called "Due Date," which previously hadn't existed. It was only after I had entered the Reminder in iCal on my Mac did it appear on there.

    Something even weirder: If you go ahead and turn off the due date on your iPhone, the due date option completely disappears! There's no way to access it back, unless you go on your Mac on iCal. The traditional "Remind me" option is of course present throughout, but the "Due date" option on iOS 5 is somewhat a mystery..

    Pretty interesting... just didn't know if it was a bug, or "hidden feature." :)
