How to Add an Event to Your iPhone Calendar


The iPhone's Calendar app supports events that are local to your device's calendar as well as those added to and synced with accounts such as Microsoft Exchange, Google and iCloud. You can set up one-time and repeating events, and you can receive alerts at the time of the event or beforehand. While the local calendar doesn't support these additional options, some calendar services allow you to send invites to contacts and specify your availability.

  • Tap your iPhone's "Calendar" home screen icon.

  • Tap the "+" button to add an event. Enter a title for the event and a location if applicable.

  • Tap the next option displayed to select start and end dates and times for the event. If the event lasts for the entire day, tap the "All-Day" switch, and then just set start and end dates. Tap "Done" to continue.

  • Tap the "Repeat" field if your event repeats. Select the frequency, which can range from daily to yearly. Tap "Done" to return to the other fields.

  • Tap the "Alert" field if you want your phone to show an alert at or before the event time. Select your option and then tap "Done."

  • Tap the "Calendar" field and then choose the calendar where you want to add the event. Tap "Done" after making your selection.

  • Tap the "Invitees" field if you want to invite contacts to the event. In the "To" field, begin typing the name or email address for a contact and then select the contact in the search results that appear. Alternatively, enter a full email address in the field. Tap the "+" icon to add each invitee and tap "Done" when finished.

  • Tap the "Availability" field to specify whether you're busy or free during the event. Tap "Done" to return to the event form.

  • Type an optional URL for the event and any desired notes. Tap "Done" to add the event to your iPhone's calendar.

Tips & Warnings

  • Invitees receive emails with links to confirm attendance and to add the event to their own calendars.
