It seems like there is no proper guide on the Internet on the best way to sync iPhone Ical with Ical. At least it does not function at all for me.

 

Appointments written on my Ical on on Iphone are not syncronized with my Ical on my mac even though I have them on the same Wifi connection for several hours every day.

 

Would appreciate if there was an easy solution to this problem. I imagine that it is probably an easy guide how to set it up. But the problem is I cannot find this guide anywhere.

    How are you trying to sync them? Via iTunes or via iCloud? What version of OS X and what version of iOS?

     

    There's really only two ways to sync calendars, and basically it's as simple as checking a box.

     

    For syncing with iTunes, see here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1296

     

    For syncing with iCloud, see here: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3999

    I prefer to sync with Icloud an get rid of every unnecessary calendars. But i find that the support-pages on Apple are to complicated to get a quick fix for that. So Icloud calendars will do for me.

     

    I donnot want to spend to much time to find out. And I notice that a lot of people got the same problem. We just want an easy way out.

     

    I find that Itunes is a little bit outdated here.
    ICloud is probably what people are using.

     

    It is a bit cumbersome to first go into Itunes to sync. As long as I am most of the time on the same Wifi as my phone, this is a much easier solution.

    I guess I found out for myself. Do not have any other calendars than Icloud on your machine. Otherwise they won't sync.

     

    The problem arised when I startet to use Icloud to sync instead of Itunes.

     

    The transition was far from smooth.

     

    So after many missed appointments because of lack of syncronistation I finally understood why.

     

     

    Well. What about a smart an easy user introduction from Apple on how to use Icloud in an efficent way.

     

    I think many can say thay have I-mist instead instead of I-cloud for a certain time before they understand how to use Icloud.
