How to Share iPhone Calendar


Hey everyone. I’m Max Dalton, and in this video I’ll show
you how to share your iPhone calendar. Specifically, I’ll show you how to share your
iPhone’s iCloud calendar both with other iPhone, iPad and iCloud users, and with someone using
an Android device who doesn’t have an iCloud account. Sharing your iPhone’s iCloud calendars are
a great way to stay in sync with family, friends, and people you work closely with. Apple makes it easy to share your iCloud calendar
with other iCloud users, and you can even give those users the ability to edit your
calendar. You can also share a view-only version of
your iPhone’s iCloud calendar with Android users that they can add to other calendar
services that they can view on their Android device, such as Google Calendar and Outlook
Calendar. But, there are some additional hoops to jump
through. I’ll cover both options in this video, starting
with sharing with other iCloud users. If you want to jump forward to how to share
your iPhone calendar with an Android user, move ahead to the timestamp displayed on the
screen. Now let’s walk through the steps to share
your iPhone calendar with another iCloud user. Step 1. Launch the Calendar app on your iPhone, and
then tap “Calendars” on the screen. The Show Calendars screen is displayed. Step 2. Tap the Apple calendar you want to share in
the iCloud section at the top of the screen. You’ll land on the Edit Calendar screen. Step 3. Tap “Add Person” in the Shared With section,
and then enter the email address associated with the person you want to share this iPhone
calendar with. Click “Add” after entering that person’s email
address. Step 4. You’ll be returned to the Edit Calendar screen,
where you’ll see that person’s name now appears in the Shared With section. That individual will show as pending until
they accept the invite, at which time they will show as accepted. As a reminder, anyone you share your calendar
with using this method must have an Apple iCloud account to be able to accept your invitation
and see the calendar you shared with them. Even if they don’t
have an iPhone or iPad, they can still get a free iCloud account, accept your invitation,
and see your shared iPhone calendar online. Additionally, it’s worth noting that when
you share your calendar with another iCloud user the ability for those users to edit your
calendar is turned on by default. You can turn that feature off by going into
the Shared With part of that calendar, tapping “View and Edit” next to that person, and then
turning off the toggle associated with Allow Editing. Now let’s walk through how to share your iPhone
iCloud calendar with someone who has an Android device. Step 1. Launch the Calendar app on your iPhone, and
then tap “Calendars” on the screen. The Show Calendars screen is displayed. Step 2. Tap the Apple calendar you want to share in
the iCloud section at the top of the screen. You’ll land on the Edit Calendar screen. Step 3. Scroll down the screen until you see Public
Calendar, and then tap the toggle to the right of Public Calendar to turn it on. You’ll see a Share Link button now appear
beneath Public Calendar. Step 4. Tap “Share Link.” A window pops up asking how you want to share
the link to your public calendar. In this example, I’ll choose to email the
link. After someone gets the link they can add it
to their preferred calendar service, such as Google Calendar or Outlook Calendar. For example, if someone wanted to add this
to their Google Calendar account, they would do the following. Open a web browser and navigate to calendar.google.com. You can’t do this through the mobile app,
so you have to do it through a web browser. Click the “+” sign next to Other Calendars
in the list of options on the left side of the screen to open a menu, and then click
“From URL” in the menu. You’ll land on the From URL part of the Settings
options. Paste the link that was emailed from your
shared iPhone iCloud calendar, and then click “Add Calendar.” A read-only version of your iCloud calendar
will now appear in that person’s Other Calendars section for them to view. Let me know what your favorite calendar service
is in the comments below. If you liked what you saw here, click the
