Calendar accounts and settings

There are several settings in Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars that affect Calendar and your
calendar accounts.

Calendar accounts are also used to sync to-do items for Reminders.
Add a CalDAV account: Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars, tap Add an Account, then tap
Other. Under Calendars, tap Add CalDAV Account.

These options apply to all of your calendars:

Set the calendar alert tones

Go to Settings > Sounds > Calendar Alerts.

Sync past events

Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Sync, then choose time period.
Future events are always synced.

Set alerts to sound when you
receive a meeting invitation

Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars and turn on New Invitation Alerts.

Turn on Calendar time zone

Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Time Zone Support.

Set a default calendar

Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Default Calendar.

Use iCloud to keep Calendar
up-to-date on your iOS devices
and computers

Go to Settings > iCloud, then turn on Calendar. See “iCloud” on page 16.


When Time Zone Support is on, Calendar displays event dates and times in the time

zone of the city you selected. When Time Zone Support is off, Calendar displays events in the time
zone of your current location as determined by the network time. Some carriers don’t support
network time in all areas. When you travel, iPhone may not display events or sound alerts at the
correct local time. To manually set the correct time, see “Date & Time” on page 167.
