How am I supposed to delete a list of there is no menu or edit options? The only edit options are to rename a list or change the color, not to delete.

Re: There is no menu button in the Reminders app for iPhone6.

Select a list, tap on "Edit" and then scroll down to the bottom and select "delete list".

What do you do if there is no edit option?

Be sure you have tapped on to the list. If there is no "edit", then first try a hard reset.
Hold the top or side power/sleep button and the home button at the same time until the Apple logo appears, then release.
If that doesn't work, then try Reset All Settings.
Reset All Settings
Go to Settings >General >Reset >Reset All Settings. This resets to default everything in Settings, including notifications, alerts, brightness, and clock settings like wake up alarms.
If it's still not there, then you may need to restore your phone as new. Not from a back up. Just start with a new copy of the OS.

There has to be a way to delete these list without resetting my phone or wiping everything off and starting over! That is crazy to have to do all this everytime a reminder is made and then is over and needs to be removedp
