    I'm wondering if this is because I use LockInfo on my JB'd iPhone 6 (iOS 8.4).

    If I set up a recurring weekly Reminder, at due time it pops up on my Mac and iPhone. If I mark it complete on the Mac and then, later, look at my iPhone, see the Reminder, slide it left and mark it complete, what happens is the next occurrence also gets marked as complete. The next Reminder ends up being for 2 weeks out.

    Does this happen on a stock iPhone also?

    If your Reminders are being shared via your Apple ID (iCloud) then only mark it complete on one device, even if it is showing as active on the other.

    It's linked.

    My Reminders show on both my iPhone and my iPad and I usually check them off on my iPhone. Eventually it reflects to my iPad.

    It's linked but you'd think that if a recurring reminder notification pops up on either device it shouldn't ever be associated with the next reminder in the series...which isn't due for a week. But it is.

    If it's "linked" then dismissing should also be linked...that is, dismissing on the Mac should also dismiss the notification on the iPhone.

    But I think similar issues have been around for a while for many types of notifications.
