I downloaded ios 6 and now all the calendars i share with co workers send me notification whenever anything is changed in their calendars.  How can i shut that off, it didn't happen before the update

iPhone 4S, iOS 6
  • Meg St._Clair Level 9 Level 9

    Settings>Mail, Contacts, Calendars>Shared Calendar Alerts>Off


    Note: you need to scroll all the way to the bottom.

    My Shared Calendar Alerts are switched off in Settings as mentioned above, but I am still getting notifications on the iPhone 4S. I tried unsharing and resharing the calendars at both ends.

  • justinbunting Level 1 Level 1

    I am having the same issue. Sorry I can't be of any help, but any suggestions from anyone would be great!

  • Quincent Level 1 Level 1

    I'm still receiving notifications (no pop-up in main screen) of the changes in the shared calendars after switching off the alert.

  • cjcj Level 1 Level 1

    Me too.  Notifications on both mine and wife's iphone4s even with option switched off.

    I'm having the same issue with my wife's iCloud calender.  I'm getting her reminders even though this setting is off.

    I'll jump in too and hope someone from Apple see it and helps us out. All notifications are OFF but still receive the "unwanted" invitation.

    My husband and I are having the same issue with our calendars and so are my brother and his wife between their shared calendars.  Apple NEEDS to come up with a solution because I have to "OK" every appointment my husband makes, and he's in sales so he makes A LOT, and it is EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING!   

  • modalshift Level 1 Level 1

    yup, me too. Shared alerts switched off but they come through anyway. Very frustrating.

    I'm having this issue as well on IOS 6. I have another iPhone running iOS 5.1.1, and it does not show alerts when alerts are created, modified, or deleted in shared calendars. I have Settings>Mail, Contacts, Calendars>Shared Calendar Alerts>Off


    iOS 5.1.1 did not have the "Shared Calendar Alerts" setting. The only setting that it has is "New Invitation Alerts," which is turned on. I want to see invitation alerts for the events that I'm invited to, but I don't want to be alerted every time someone who shares his/her calendar with me makes a change in his/her calendar as long as I'm not invited to that event, I don't need to be alerted to it. It seems that iOS 5.1.1 had the "Shared Calendar Alerts" turned off by default, and there was no way to turn it on. Somone decided to create this feature, but they did not implement the "off" toggle correctly, and this feature is always "on" in iOS 6.


    Another one of my pet pieves is when I get alerted about an event in someone's calendar based on the alert they set up for themselves. I don't care if someone who shared his/her calendar with me is going to have a dentist appointment in 30 min. Why should I be alerted to this? There's not even a setting to turn this off!


    Before iCloud came out last year, my wife and I used Google calendar, and the alerts in my calendar would never appear on her devices, or vice versa. Why can't Apple figure out such trivial tasks?

  • njgreen2001 Level 1 Level 1

    I agree sirozha.  Apple needs to get it together with the calendars.  This is extremely annoying.

  • happysailor Level 1 Level 1

    I have this too, since ios6 and Mountain Lion on the Mac shared with my wife but Lion still on my office Mac.

  • DonDanman Level 1 Level 1

    Same Problem. Running 2 OSX Lion and 2 iOS6. Apple help!

  • vrVincent Level 1 Level 1

    Problem here too. OSX 10.8.2 (using Google Calendar via web, not Mac Calendar App); iPhone 4s, iOS 6.0 (using iOS Calendar App, looking at my own Google calendar, and sharing wife's and daughter's Google calendars.)
