In this tutorial, we will learn how to sync calendars on your iPhone. Keeping your calendars synced across all your devices is essential for staying organized and ensuring that you never miss an important event or appointment.

Fortunately, syncing calendars on your iPhone is a straightforward process. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Enable iCloud Calendar Sync

To begin syncing your calendars on iPhone, you need to enable iCloud Calendar sync. Open the “Settings” app on your iPhone and tap on your name at the top of the screen. Next, select “iCloud” and toggle the switch next to “Calendars” to enable it.

Step 2: Add Your iCloud Account

To sync calendars with iCloud, you need to add your iCloud account to your iPhone. Go back to the main settings menu and tap on “Passwords & Accounts.”

Select “Add Account” and choose “iCloud.” Enter your Apple ID and password when prompted, then toggle the switch next to “Calendars” to enable calendar syncing.

Step 3: Select Default Calendar

By default, events created on your iPhone will be added to the “On My iPhone” calendar. To ensure proper syncing, it’s recommended to set a default calendar that will be used for new events.

Open the “Settings” app and scroll down until you find the “Calendar” option. Tap on it, then select “Default Calendar.” Choose the desired calendar from the list.

Step 4: Check Calendar Sync Settings

To verify that all necessary settings are enabled for calendar syncing, go back to the main settings menu and tap on “Calendar.” Under the “Accounts” section, select “Default Account” and make sure your iCloud account is selected.

Also, ensure that “Sync” is toggled on for both “Calendars” and “Events. “

Step 5: Sync Calendars

Once all the necessary settings are in place, your calendars will automatically start syncing across all your devices. Any changes or new events added to your iPhone will be reflected on other devices connected to the same iCloud account, such as your iPad or Mac.


  • To view synced calendars on other devices, make sure you are signed in with the same Apple ID and have iCloud Calendar sync enabled.
  • If you are using a third-party calendar app, check its settings to ensure it is set to sync with your iCloud account.
  • If you encounter any issues with calendar syncing, try signing out of your iCloud account on all devices and then sign back in.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to sync calendars on iPhone.

With calendar syncing enabled, you can effortlessly manage and stay updated on all your events across multiple devices. Enjoy the convenience of having synchronized calendars!
