I have: Mac OS X (10.7.5), iPad 2G, iPhone 4S, 32GB iPod Touch 2G
I've spent a LOT of time looking for some iCal help and so far haven't found it. There are SO many issues that I accidentally responded to one from a year ago.
MY PROBLEM: I can't get iCal (on iMac) to update to iCloud, so my phone and ipod won't update.
I've seen numerous issues where events created on devices don't show up on the desktop/notebook calendar.
SO, I tried creating a test event (on my phone) while connected to the iMac. Then I disconnected the phone and created another test event.
All 3 places (cloud, itouch, iMac) got the info immediately! This makes my problem the opposite of most.
I went to this page for some help: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3999
I checked default calendars, etc.
I especially looked at Troubleshooting Calendar at iCloud.com
It didn't help me at all. I didn't even get the message to let apple know.
