    I didn't think to try it after updating iTunes, I did just try it after updating my iOS to 4.1 and agree, the calendar sync now works both ways! Don't know if the credit goes to iTunes 10.0 or iOS 4.1, but just glad it can finally do this

    It must be iTunes 10!

    I am still on iOS 4.0.1 and just tested this. It does work! I can actually use my iPhone as a business device now. FINALLY!

    Confirmed, The latest updates as of Sept. 13th, 2010 does successfully sync the calendar with outlook on xp.

    However, (this might belong in a new thread or not). There does not seem to be any straight-forward way of syncing the "Photos" on the iphone to a xp pc from my standpoint.

    Despite all the updates, I am still having issues. In the last few days a few entries are being repeatedly duplicated. Also the iPhone cal has gotten VERY SLOW. I am currently trying to turn off the Me syncs on the iPhone. After syncing to the Mac, (told it to sync to iCal) I could see entries in the Day and Month lists but Calendars was blank on the iPhone.

    Again Apple Folks, Please let us designate the iPhone Calendar as PRIMARY. BTW, I have not upgraded to the newer Me calendar.

    Y'all be cool,

    Anybody now able to sync the iPhone calendar successfully with iCal? <<</div>


    From my experience, using google calendar and google's microsoft exchange sync is the best solution for both this question and to deal with the calendar sync problems which are the basis of this thread.

    I have three devices set up to do this, both calendar and contacts... two sync from one account and one from another and, once set up, is both seamless, transparent and has been reliable for a year.

    once set up <<</div>


    There are a number of hoops to jump through, but I have some setup steps from my learning curve at http://bevhoward.com/GoogleSync.htm

    iCal <<</div>


    I've tinkered with this a little bit, and, since google calendar supports iCal imports, I'm assuming that once setup with a calendar you sync via google's exchange sync, the iCal entries should sync as well. I do know that setting up an external google calendar such as holidays does sync to the iOS devices. Please report back on this.

    Hope that this information is of value.

    None of that applies to me. I am an IT Consultant who runs his own iMap server and use Me.com for having a calendar in the cloud. Long story but I need to replace the cal on me.com. The calendar on the iPhone is my Primary. So I had planned to replace the iCal calendars on the big Mac with what is on the phone and sync that to me.com, but as you may know, the iTunes sync to the Mac iCal is BROKEN. It wipes the calendar on the phone.

    So, anybody successfully sync the iPhone calendar to iCal via the newest iTunes(10.1 (54))?

    Thanks,

    Wellllll,

    4.2.1 and the latest iTunes does not delete the cals on the phone but does not populate iCal in my case. BTW, if I click on Calendars in the Calendar app on the phone, it says I have 4 Calendars but none show in that screen. I do have my events though.

    Gonna try turning on me.com sync again and see how bad that is. I do have multiple backups of the iPhone backups so I should be able to get the current events.

    Not happy! I am a Consultant and need my Calendar to sync properly.
