How to Create a Public Calendar On Your iPhone Calendar App

A public calendar, unlike a shared calendar, lets others subscribe to your calendar. They cannot edit the calendar – only you can. However, they can still see whatever changes you make to the public calendar.

iPhone/iPad and Mac OS X allow you to create public calendars out of the Calendar app on your device.

Step #6. Scroll down after tapping the calendar and where it says Public Calendar, slide the switch to ON.

Now, the calendar is public. You can share the link through Share Link… option. By default, the iPhone lets you share calendar links via Mail and text. You can also copy the calendar URL.

Creating Public Calendar On iPhone Calendar App

You must note here that the calendar is only made public so anyone with the link can “view” the calendar entries. No one can edit the calendar. Only you get to do that.

While Shared Calendars work as a collaborative calendar, public calendars are read-only. Subscribers do not get alerts or notifications when you make changes to the calendar.

That’s all!
