After updating my iPhone 4s to iOS7 I started receiving warnings that I was running out of space on my phone.  When I went to usage I found that the Calendar events was taking up about 4.2 GB  and I had no remaining space.  I tried to remove a few Calendars but the Settings app locked up when I tried to either remove or disable any of the calendars.  I have several GMail accounts setup and a subcription or two.

 

Doing a hard restart freed the space up and returned the Calendar events size to normal but the Calendar events then started grab more space until all the remain space was gone.  I have turned on Airplane mode, done a hard restart (free the space) and the calendar events still grows to take all my extra space.  I also have an iPad with iOS7 and the same calendar supscriptions and it does not have the same issue.

 

Does anyone have any solutions to this problem?

I was finally able to fix this.  The problem appears to have been re-accuring events on my work calendars that did not have a set end date.  The Calendar app seems to be adding ALL the events and since they do not have an end date just keeps going.

 

Steps to fix:

1.  Turned off Push and then set the Fetch settings to Manual to prevent any updates to the calendars

2.  Remove/Turn off the calendar with the events.  This can take a LONG TIME.  I had to let this run over night. Alternatively you could try and modify the event by adding an end date.

 

Also of note.  Doing a restore via iTunes did not fix the problem.

    Thanks for the fix. Hope Apple will fix this in a future update, because this means no calendar entries in notification center anymore for me. All my calendars have recurring events without end date... Plus I have to look for an app which will show the calendar without depending on iOS..

    Thank you so much!  It took a LONG TIME, but it worked!
