I have a iPad3 that will not sync, to iCloud, any new Calander Events created on the iPad. 

 

It sync's everything else just fine, Contacts, Mail, etc. The iPad sync's just fine if the Event is created directly on iCloud via the Safari brouser or when the Event is created on my MacBook Air.

 

But, for some reason, if I create the Event on the iPad --- it will not upload to the iCloud for viewing in Safari or to be pushed to my MacBook. All other syncing functions work fine......

 

I'm a little preplexed by this one.  Why does iCloud refuse only those Calendar Events created on the iPad?  All other syncing functions work fine.

MacBook Air, OS X Mountain Lion

    On your iPad 3 go to Settings>Mail,Contacts,Calendars>Default Calendar and be sure you have selected an iCloud calendar as your default and not something else like On My iPhone, a Google calendar, etc.  If you haven't, make this change, then add a new event and see if it appears on your calendar on icloud.com now.

     

    If your settings are correct and new events still aren't appearing on icloud.com, add any missing calendar events from your iPad3 to your calendar on icloud.com.  Once the calendar on icloud.com is up to date, go to Settings>iCloud, turn Calendars to Off, choose Delete from My iPad when prompted (it will still be in iCloud), then after a minute or so, turn Calendars back to On.  Then add a new event on your iPad and see if it appears on your calendar on icloud.com now.

    Try turn the iCloud calendar off on your iPad again, choose Delete from My iPad when prompted, then force close the calendar app by going to your home screen, double-tapping the home button, locate Calendar in the list at the bottom, tap to close it, then tap the home button again.  Then open your calendar again, go back to Settings>iCloud, turn Calendar to On, then after your iCloud calendar reappears on your iPad try entering another test event and see if it appears on icloud.com now.

    If that doesn't work, the next step is to try deleting and re-adding your iCloud account on your iPad.  To do this, start by saving your photo stream photos to your camera roll (unless they are already there) by opening your my photo stream album, tapping Edit, tap the photos, tap Share, then tap Save to Camera Roll.

     

    Then go to Settings>iCloud, tap Delete Account, choose Delete from My iPad when prompted, then after a minute or so sign back in with your iCloud ID and turn your data sync settings back to On.  This will delete the account and your iCloud data from your iPad, but not from iCloud.  Your data will reappear on your iPad when you sign back in.

     

    Then try adding another test event and see if it appears on icloud.com now.

    I have to run now, but if you post back later I'll see it in the morning.
