Problems About Using iPhone or iPad Calendar and Fixes


Calendars help you keep track of what you’re doing and when, which is why it’s always been one of the core apps on mobile devices to the latest iPhones and iPads. That why, when iOS launched in 2007, it included a Calendar app. Whether you simply use Calendar by itself, or whether you sync it via iCloud, Google Calendar, Microsoft, or something else, it’s the default way to add and find appointments and events. Below are some useful fixing solutions for problems while you are using calendar on iPhone or iPad.

Google calendar does not show up in the calendars app on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac

If you accepted an invitation from someone to share a Google calendar but aren’t seeing it on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac; it could be due to your Google Sync settings. Google turns sync off by default for new calendars, particularly shared ones. It’s frustrating, and it’s why you can’t immediately see them on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac even when you can see them online. Luckily it’s also simple to fix — once you know how!

Launch Safari or any other web browser on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.
Go to
Sign in (if you aren’t already).
Under Shared Calendars, make sure all the boxes are checked for the calendars you want to see on iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

View, manage, and change replies to shared Calendar events on iPhone and iPad

Launch the Calendar app on your iPhone or iPad.
Tap on Inbox in the bottom right hand corner.
Tap on Replied in the top navigation.
You’ll see an entire list of shared events. Tap on any of them to view more details or tap on any action button to change your reply quickly.

See unconfirmed calendar events in Calendar for iPhone and iPad

By default, the Calendar app on your iPhone or iPad won’t show events you haven’t confirmed on your calendar view. If you don’t like this behavior and would like to see all events — declined or not — in all calendar views on your iPhone or iPad, all you’ve got to do is change a setting. Here’s how!

When you choose to show declined events in the Calendar app, you won’t actually receive notifications for them. You’ll simply see them in your Calendar app. You’ll only ever receive notifications if you change your RSVP to either maybe or attending.

Launch the Calendar app on your iPhone or iPad.
Tap on Calendars in the bottom navigation.
Turn On the option for Show Declined Events, it’s all the way at the bottom.
Tap Done at the top right.

Hide calendars in the Calendar app for iPhone and iPad

Some calendars are a necessary evil, even if we don’t necessarily want them cluttering up our Calendar app. Perfect examples of these are shared work calendars that contain lots of pertinent information, but you may not need to see that information all day, every day. That’s where hiding calendars comes in handy: You can tuck away calendars you don’t need often and quickly toggle them back on when you do. Here’s how!

Launch the Calendar app on your iPhone or iPad.
Tap on Calendars at the bottom.
Tick Off the calendar you want to hide.
Tap Done at the top left.
The calendar should now be hidden. To unhide it, just perform the same steps again.

Hiding calendars is different from deleting calendars: You’ll still receive any notifications you have set up, you just won’t see that calendar unless you unhide it. It makes this trick a great solution for super-busy calendars that cast a shadow over everything else.
