Doesn't iPad need to be connected to wi-fi in order for the calendar to show up on my iphone via iCloud?


iPhone 5, iOS 6

You need a data connection but either cellular data or wifi will work. If wifi is available and you are connected it will be used over cellular data. But if no wifi is available, then your cellular data connection will pull the information from iCloud.

 

Obviously, that means if you have a wifi-only iPad, then yes, you must have an active wifi connection.

 

The data does not "flow" form device to device.  Each device must connect to the iCloud servers to send and receive information.

    Thank you!!!

    I'm new to the Apple world and had to actually delete my iCloud account on my iphone5 and sign back on and when I did all of my calendar info was gone but is still on my iPad but now won't update to my iPhone. Ill connect it to the wifi and hopefully that will work!
