You can now change the color of the listings under US Holidays or if you don’t want them to be shown, deselect the listing. Interestingly, you can add more holiday (or other custom) calendars in the same way as long as you add a valid “.ics” source for the calendar.

If you want to delete the calendar (that would not be exactly necessary as you can uncheck it to keep from showing on your calendar), here’s how you do it:

  • Go to Settings → Mail, Contacts & Calendars
  • Tap on the Subscribed Calendars listing
  • Tap on the calendar you want to delete
  • You’ll see a large big ‘Delete Account’ button. Tap, and the calendar’s gone!
