iphone calendar not syncing

I think Calendar is the most used app on our iPhone, for it can help us note the important and unmissable dates. Besides, the marked dates can be shown on different iOS devices, which is a great convenient function for iOS users. However, some iOS users tell me that their iPhone Calendar not syncing with outlook or other iOS devices. It is such a disturbing issue, and I find out some useful fixes as soon as possible. In this post, I will list out the best-selected methods for this iOS issue.

Method 1. Log in to the same Apple ID

Though the Calendar date can sync with other iOS devices, it only works on the premise of logging in to the same Apple ID. If your iPhone Calendar not syncing with iPad or Mac, please confirm the Apple ID you are using on different devices.

Method 2. Disable Calendar sync and switch it on again

Firstly, check your account settings. If you close the sync setting, your iPhone data will not sync with other devices anymore. Hence, if the Calendar sync is closed on your iPhone, please reopen it to recover the syncing feature. You can check the setting on your phone via Settings > Password & Accounts.

Method 3. Confirm the Calendar settings and refresh it
