The calendar app on your iPhone has many different uses that covers each of your activities ranging from office appointments to household chores. When used properly, it can be one of the most useful features of your smartphone and really help in improving your life.
Before you can enjoy all the benefits, though, you first need to set everything up, and luckily you can create your calendar based on your iCloud, Google, Outlook or even Exchange accounts. Furthermore, you can combine events from all these accounts to provide a complete view of your activities.
The calendar, by default, will have an all-white appearance and bubbles for events. However, you can prioritize events by colour coding them, thereby making your calendar easier to use. You can also change the calendar type, for example, by switching it to a Hebrew, Chinese or Islamic calendar.
It’s now easier to invite people to events just by sharing calendars. Of course, you wouldn’t want to share your entire calendar, so begin by creating an ‘Events’ calendar.
It’s also easy to share events with the family, and all you need to do is set up ‘Family Sharing’. Doing so will create a Family Calendar, and any events created there will be synchronized to all family members’ iPhones.
Siri is there to create and edit calendar events, which is definitely easier, but not very effective. Siri will respond to simple commands but for a complete command of calendar items, you will have to do it yourself.
