    Same problem for last 2 days. My home and work calenders changed colors and whether I change them back on iphone, ipad or dektop they revert back again.

     

    APPLE PLS FIX!!

    We´re havind the exact same problem here with different iMacs, iPhones and iPads. Different iCloud-accounts, by the way.

    Please don´t tell us just to „wait“. We want a solution and would like a notice once it´s solved sometime soon!

    I changed myself and the missus over from Google Calendars to Shared Icloud coz i expect this crap from Google but not from Apple.

     

    I have 5 devices syncing one shared icloud calendar

     

    IOS7

    My iphone 5 - Calendar Red and stays any colour i choose

    Wife Iphone 5 - Calendar Red and stays red and any colour i choose

     

    IOS6

    My ipad 2 - Calendar will not change from blue, it changes then goes straight back

    Wifes Ipad 3 - Calendar is Red and stays any colour i choose

     

    MACBOOK

    Apple Calendar app - Calendar will not change from blue, it changes then goes straight back

    Icloud through Chrome - Calendar will not change from blue, it changes then goes straight back

    Icloud through Safari - Calendar will not change from blue, it changes then goes straight back

     

    *** APPLE!

     

    Does this mean just to choose calendar colours i have to go back to GOOGLE?

     

    One other odd thing.

    On my Iphone, Ipad and Macbook the calendar says private and only shared with wife

    On wifes iphone and ipad it says its a public calendar

     

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have been having this problem for the last 2 or 3 days now. I have a Green Calendar and it keeps constantly changing to Purple. Really annoying !!

    Having the same issue and I think this person found a solution:

     

    https://discussions.apple.com/message/23347935#23347935

     

    I modified it by basically starting a new calendar with the desired color (blue) and entering in future appointments. I then exported my old calendar, which kept changing colors to purple, then re-imported that calendar to my new blue calendar. When you import you have the option of merging it with existing calendars. Seems to work so far. Good luck!

    I tried both the above solutions.

    At first it seemed to have worked. When I imported the old calendar form my desktop to merge with the new one with the new color it looked fine and the color was ok. But, when iCloud tried to update, I got a message of a error on the server and now have a disconnected iCloud on iCal. I have both the old and new calendar (double events) and in two colors and iCloud on iCal won't reconnect and keeps giving me the error message constantly.

     

    This is more than frustrating.

    I think I have to give up iCal altogether.

    For many reasons, I'm giving up on more and more Apple native apps and reverting to non natives.This should not be happening.

    I have the same problem.

    But just one calendar, private, changed colour.

    There was no way to set it back to the original colour.

    So i had the change manually all other calendars for good differentiation.

    Thanks for delivering a solution as soon as possible - Apple!

    Is it usefull to discuss this annoying problem here? I mean, is there an Apple man/woman reading this at all? Support Communities are nice for sharing knowledge and helping each other if someone doesn't understand something or is looking for a solution others already have.

     

    But this is something no one here can solve for us. So my question is: how to adress Apple on this issue directly?

    Sohia65, yes there is a way. it's here. Take a try at it.

    http://www.apple.com/feedback/macosx.html

     

    But in the past, I don't think Apple has really taken notice of any comments or "bugs" I've reported even though thy say they "carefully read" all comments. I always had to find a way to fix things myself.

    I think it will be the same here.

     

    Everyone should at least try. I've already sent mine.

    With great pleasure, I can report that the problem appears to be fixed. All three of my devices plus the iCloud web site now show my desired colours and they seem to stay put.
