My iphone and my mac sync calendar, contacts, and mail, but when I log into icloud to see my calendar, neither my contacts nor my calendar is synced. I would like to be able to let someone access my calendar from another computer, but it is never up to date on the icloud website.

 

What am I missing?


icloud

    I'm assuming you are no longer syncing with iTunes to get contacts, calendar, etc. synced between devices (but mail is a different matter, the mail app does the syncing).  If your iphone and mac are connected to icloud and you have turned on calendar and contact syncing in System Preferences/Settings, then they will sync that data.  You indicate that it seems to.  However, that syncing process means the data is also stored in iCloud and you can view it (email also) by logging into icloud.com with a computer browser.

     

    You imply that the contacts and events in calendars are not listed in icloud.com.  The only way this can happen is if you are logging in using a different icloud ID than the one used on your devices.  I suggest you look at the mac and iphone to verify what the ID is.  It cannot be the same as the one you use to log into icloud.com with browser.

     

    As for letting someone else access to your data on icloud (I assume by giving them your ID and password), this is like giving your PIN to a friend so they can log into your bank account via the web.

    Thanks pvonk. This was helpful from the beginning.

     

    I actually do still sync with iTunes. I don't have anything in my system preferences that indicates that I have icloud on my mac.

     

    Am I missing an update or something? My macbook Pro is only just over a year old. My iphone has iCloud, but even the stuff on my iphone doesn't change what I find on the icloud website when I log in, and I did check to make sure the login and password were the same.

     

    Thanks for the help.

    ALL I HAVE FIGURED THIS OUT! It took me around an hour, and this is for when the updates on your Mac calendar don't show up on your phone. You need to make sure that when creating the event on your Mac, the Calendar it is on is the iCloud calendar. Double click the event, hit edit, then click on the Caledar - a menu should pop up. Make sure to choose an iCloud calendar.

    For myself, I have deselected all calendars that are only on my Mac and selected and created different calendars under the iCloud option.  Seeing I use both and iPad, iPod Touch and my Mac I need all my calendar events accessible on all my devices along with the alerts sent via the cloud.

     

    So if I have something that has an alert to remind me of an event and I am on my iPad I and not near the Mac I would not know. 

     

    So in my opinion if you have more than one device it would be in your best interest to have all calendars in iCloud and not any on your Mac but that choice is clearly yours.

     

    But for me this is the system the works best for me.

    iCal on my Mac sync to iCloud but not all of the calendar sync to my iPhone 4S and iPad 3rd gen. Older data lost but immediate data appear as soon as I update my iCal on Mac. Older data means that after a week or two the data gone from both iPhone and iPad, but still there on Mac and iCloud. What should I do? Anyone please advise!

    Put all calendars, on all devices, in the iCloud account, maybe read the posts above?
