Welcome to the dark side 


If you’re already using iOS 13 in dark mode, then you’ll have noticed this change the minute you updated To Do. We now take your light or dark mode system settings and adjust the app accordingly. Love it bright and light during the day but want to give your eyes a rest at night? Set your system settings to automatic, then To Do will flip to dark mode automatically at sunset.

Drag and drop on iPad 

It’s now easier to share links to To Do on iPad. Want to add a link from Twitter to read laterOr a location for that important task you have to check off? All of this is possible by dragging the link from one app into To Do while in Split View. Touch and hold the link and then drag it across to a particular task in To Do or to the New Task option to create a new task from the link.

Dragged your links across? Great! Now click into the detail view and you’ll notice that we now show you a preview card of the link. If it’s a video, you can watch it directly in To Do. Looking for something to do this weekend? Create a Movie night list of all the awesome films coming up, add trailers and share it with friends so they can join in the fun.

More drag and drop 

While we’re here, we wanted to mention another cool feature we brought out on iPhone and iPad recently. You can now drag steps into your list to turn them into tasks, and vice versa. You can also pick up multiple tasks and drag them into a different list or create a new list with them.
