How to Stop iPhone/iPad from Adding Events from Mail to Calendar

Stop your iDevice acting smart. If your iPhone or iPad adds all events mentioned in your mail to calendar, your irritation will blow out of proportion. Check this information and prevent your device from adding events from mail to calendar.

Every technology tends to have an ambivalent attitude towards its users. A new gadget can have good features for some while the same machine can be useless for others. Moreover, in different situations, devices act differently. And this also enables users to judge how good or bad that device is.

But there is a third dimension to this argument. What if the device boasts only good features? And sometimes, it tends to be overly good to its users? Well, users would be bewildered by the device and would appreciate if makers could “tone down” the goodness of that gadget.

How to Prevent iPhone-iPad from Adding Events from Mail to Calendar

I experienced this while I was using Mail, Contacts, Calendars feature on my iPhone 6s. After installing iOS 9, it started scanning my inbox and finding events mentioned within the body of the message. Then this feature would use that info to add tentative events to my calendar. The logic is admirable: I should not forget about any small or big event coming next week or month.

I appreciate this extra effort of iOS 9, but it began to clutter my calendar with hundreds of events in a year. In this situation, I was left with only one option to prevent iPhone or iPad from adding events from Mail to Calendar.
