Good morning, I am having difficulty syncing my iPhone, iPad and Macbook calendar.  Can you assist me?


iPad 2, iOS 7.0.4

    If you're trying to sync them by plugging each device into your laptop, you will not be able to with the latest version of iTunes.  Apple has removed this feature as they want you to use iCloud.  If you'd prefer not to use iCloud, fill out the form on this page and ask them to bring the feature back.

    To be correct, Sync Services (which iTunes uses to sync Contacts & Calendars) was removed in Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks.

    Syncing locally works fine in iTunes for Windows.

    Well now that we are all correct ... I am having the same problem (s)

    My ipad 2 will not sync with icloud calendars.

     

    iCloud on iPad shows:

    correct iCloud account

    Contacts and Calendars are turned on

    1.8 gig avaialable in free icloud starage

    iCloud backup turned on

    my last iCloud back up  was finished just minutes ago

     

    go to ipad calendar app and only show one calendar ... Birthdays, which I have NO IDEA where that cam from.

     

    The is a PLUS in the upper right, it is greyed out and no functional

    I see Calendars as a "menu" item at the bottom of the screen, but can only edit my birthday calendar.

     

    I see no way to add icloud calendars to my ipad calendars and everything seems to be set up.

     

    Please help

    Do you have iCloud enabled on your Mac?

     

    Settings > iCloud.

    Turn off Calendars, wait a few minutes, then turn it back on.

    If  it doesn't work, do the same on your Mac.

     

     

    go to ipad calendar app and only show one calendar ... Birthdays, which I have NO IDEA where that cam from.

    It is generated automatically from birthdays set in your Contacts list.

    Thanks for the quick response ...

     

    Did as you said on both mbp and ipad. No change

    Also noticed ipad is charging from mbp but will not sync music ... Sync service not started and iPad does not show it connected to the mbp but is charging from it.

     

    iphone 5 working just fine.

     

    Thanks again for your hellp

    Sync service not started

    You will see this if you are running Mavericks (10.9) and iTunes version less than 11.

     

    Log into icloud.com on your MacBook.

    Do you see all the calendars there?

    If so, on the iPad, Settings >iCloud, delete the account then add it back.

    iTunes = 11.1.3

    Yes Calendars show on icloud

     

    deleted ipad icloud account - added back in accepting defaults

    Turned off Ipad

    no change

     

    Thanks again for your help

    Just to follow up ...

    Followed what Chris CA suggested, but this time, used HOME/POWER to reset the iPad.

    Confrimed the settings, and it all started to work!! Yea!!
