Step 1: Open the Settings app

To begin, unlock your iPhone and locate the Settings app. It’s represented by a gear icon and can usually be found on your home screen.

Once you have the Settings app open, scroll down until you find the “Passwords & Accounts” option. Tap on it to proceed.

In the “Passwords & Accounts” section, you’ll see a list of all your existing accounts. To add a new account, simply tap on the “Add Account” option.

Step 4: Choose your preferred calendar service

A list of supported account types will appear. Depending on which calendar service you use, select the appropriate option. Common choices include iCloud, Google Calendar, and Microsoft Exchange.

If using iCloud:

If you’re an iCloud user, select the “iCloud” option from the list. You’ll be prompted to enter your Apple ID and password to sign in to your iCloud account.

If using Google Calendar:

For Google Calendar users, choose the “Google” option from the list. You’ll then need to enter your Google email address and password to sign in.

If using Microsoft Exchange:

If you use Microsoft Exchange for your calendar, select the “Exchange” option. Enter your email address, password, and any additional server information as prompted.

Step 5: Enable calendar syncing

Once you have successfully signed in to your account, you’ll be presented with a list of options to enable or disable syncing various types of data. Make sure the “Calendar” option is toggled on to sync your calendar.

If desired, you can customize additional settings for your calendar sync. These may include choosing a default calendar, setting the sync interval, or enabling notifications. Take some time to explore these options and make any necessary adjustments.

Step 7: Verify syncing is successful

After completing the previous steps, return to your home screen and open the Calendar app. Verify that all your events and appointments are successfully synced across all devices associated with your chosen calendar service.


You’ve successfully synced your calendar on iPhone! Now you can effortlessly stay organized and keep track of important events no matter where you are.

Note: In case you encounter any issues with syncing or have multiple calendars from different services, make sure to double-check your account settings and ensure proper configuration for each respective service.

  • Tips:
