How to Share Calendar Events From iPhone or iPad

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.

Open Settings then Tap on Your Profile on iPhone or iPad

Step #2. Tap on iCloud → Switch on the switch next to Calendar.

Enable Calendars in iCloud on iPhone or iPad

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:

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!

  1. We have recently released a new iPhone calendar called CalPal to the iOS App Store! It’s focused on simplifying the process of including people in your plans and coordinating within your calendar itself. Every event has a group messaging thread that can be used by the people included on an event.

    As a result, the calendaring, the coordinating, the remindering and the syncing all happen in one place, reliably, for anyone associated with an event, which makes calendaring a substantially less effort-intensive habit. Our users find that they have far more control over their time and therefore do way more of the things they want to do.

    We think that sparking massive lifestyle improvements is a big mission, but we’re thrilled that our new product is already resonating with people and empowering them.
