    What do you mean by save your calendars?

    You could back-up your calenders on to iCloud, where you could access from a Mac, iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. You need an iTunes account (which you probably have) and enable iCloud on your device to do so.

     

    On a Mac, you could go to Settings, and under Internet & Wireless, click "iCloud". From there, enable the Calender option.

     

    Similarly, on an iPad, go to Settings, and click "iCloud". Enable the Calender option.

    Do you know how to save past calendars?  When Jan 2013 came, every month from my 2012 calendar went blank.  I need to retain this information but don't know how.

    Are you syncing calendar events direct with a supported calendar app on your computer via the iTunes sync process, or over the air with an email account that supports it?

     

    If the former, there is a setting for this under the Info tab for your iPad sync preferences with iTunes below the Sync Calendars section.

     

    There is also an option for syncing events on the iPad at Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Calendars > Sync.

    The problem I have is not with synching, it's with saving past data on a previous month.  Now that March has arrived, all of my data from January 2013 has disappeared.  I want to keep an entire year of events without it disappearing.

    You're welcome.

     

    If you are syncing calendar events, this has everything to do with syncing - more with your chosen settings for syncing.

    I use the Calendar app on both iPhone 4S and iPad.  I just spoke to a AppleCare rep who told me to be sure to back up my iPad annually on Mar 31.  If February's data disappears, I'm to call back.  This is very disappointing to me and means I'll have to copy my calendar by hand onto a paper calendar just in case.  So much for the convenience of technology on the go!

    You have not answered my question.

     

    Good luck.

    You're absolutely right.  I went into synching and selected "all events."  Everything now appears, even from July 2012, when I first got my iPhone (in which I also selected "all events."  Thank you for your help!!
