    By default when I create an event on my iPhone, there would be one reminder set to 2 hours before the event to remind me.
    Is there a way to change this default setting? I'd like to set it to 1 day for the first reminder and 15 minutes for the second, and I want it to be like this every time I create an event.

    I just noticed that on Mac the default is one reminder one day before.

    Cool, thanks! No way to set a second alert time?

    I think you can snooze it?

    Is your calendar on iCloud or somewhere else?

    That's not the same, I want it to appear a day before, this way it appears also on my Mac in the top right corner all the time and I don't forget it. Then, when it's really about to happen, it reminds me again 15 minutes before. :) On the Mac I can also only select one alert time. Too bad, that's something Apple needs to add to the next update if you ask me.

    Yeah it's on iCloud I believe, since it synchronises automatically with my Mac/iPhone. Does that change something?

    I think Apple is going to work on bringing OSX and iOS closer together in the near future. I have a Macbook and sometimes I'm baffled as to why things like Airdrop don't work with OSX and iOS.:confused:

    Bringing them closer is okay, I just hope the next OSX won't look like iOS 7 :)

    It limits the possibilities somewhat. You could set up multiple default reminders with a Google calendar.

    There is a somewhat convoluted way to use Google to send default SMS reminders for an iCloud calendar.

    Im hoping we can put widgets where we want in the next OSX rather than be stuck with that stupid dashboard screen no one seems to use.
