If you use an iPhone, you probably use the built-in calendar app too. And if you do, you might want to know how you can share calendar events that you create with your family and friends.
The ability to share calendar events is one of the coolest things on an iPhone (or any smartphone for that matter). But of course, as with all things, it’s not really one-stop to sharing calendar events unless you’ve configured your calendar to be shared.
To be able to share calendar events, you first need to make sure you sync your calendar over iCloud. Without iCloud sync, you cannot share events to others
So here’s how to enable iCloud for Calendars:
Step #1. Go to Settings → Tap on Your Profile.
Step #2. Tap on iCloud → Switch on the switch next to Calendar.
Depending on the data in your calendar and the network speed, it might take a while to sync.
Suppose you have this enabled already, you can proceed to this:
How to Share Calendar Events From Your iPhone or iPad
Step #1. Open the Calendar app → Tap on the day when the event has been scheduled → Tap on the Event.
Step #2. Tap on Edit then tap on Invitees.
Now when you send a calendar invite to someone (ostensibly, this should be an email used as an Apple ID), they will get the notification in their Calendar app. By default, when they accept the invitation, the event gets added to their Calendar app.
In fact, you can use this method to invite as many people as you want to the event via your iPhone/iPad. Alerts for the events, however, are set according to the recipients’ settings.
That’s all for now, mate!
