    Correct, the person is not getting the Calendar notification or email. 


    I just checked the settings on icloud via web browser and it is set to receive notifications as "in-app notifications," but I still just get the email.

    Make sure the email address that receives the invites is listed as either your Primary or one of your Alternates for your Apple ID. (go to the manage Apple ID page).


    Good luck

    It's been said before, but you ARE a god!  It's been over a year, I just found your solution and it worked.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Wow..... PROBLEM FINALLY FIXED... This issue/solution should be posted high up in the Apple iCloud technical help... Months of troubleshooting, and a lot of hair loss... Now all behind me!

    I haven't seen anything that addresses this problem, so hopefully there's a solution:


    I have an iPhone 5 with iOS 7 installed. 


    I use Gmail for all my email addresses, I have multiple accounts that I access via my phone.  The two most important are a personal Gmail and a work email.


    The work email is Gmail also, but I have it mapped to a domain that is used for work. (e.g. so I can send from instead of 


    I received an iCloud invite from someone, and the first time, it entered into my calendar on my iPhone (I use the Apple Calendar app).  The invite got updated, but my calendar invite did not update.  I saw it in my "replied" list under the "inbox" button on the bottom right of the app.  I was able to decline it and it disappeared off my calendar, but it did not update. 


    I tried doing a test invitation from my personal to my work email, and while I can accept the invite (using the iCloud accept / maybe / decline butons), it still doesn't show up on my calendar on my iPhone or Mac. 


    How can I get these to work?

    Alfabet you are a star! Been trying to get that working for ages. BTW I had to remove all my alternate addresses and logout of all devices before it worked but you nailed it.


    Cheers dude.

    I figured out this only happens when you use a special setup.


    Your setup

    1. You use Google Calendar with your address 
    2. Your is also your Apple ID
    3. An iCloud user sends you a calendar invitation


    The issue

    Apple doesn't send the event as an email, it is only displayed as a calendar notification.


    How to solve

    1. Log into iCloud with your address
    2. Go to calendar
    3. Select the settings symbol in the bottom left corner
    4. Select "Preferences"
    5. Select "Advanced"
    6. Select "Email to" in the "Receive event invitations as:" area

    I called Apple support and they checked a few things on my mac:

    • Went to on Safari and logged out from my account.
    • Opened system preferences - iCloud - log out. Then one by one I unchecked all the apps (calendar, notes, contacts. etc.)
    • Finally, I started re-checking all the applications in the iCloud settings, starting by the calendar, and leaving Safari unchecked.

    The problem was solved, and I started receiving notifications in the iCal app right away, and no more annoying e-mails with .ics attachment.

    I checked Safari in the iCloud settings and still working fine.


    Hope this helps
