Apple Devices with Google Accounts

Here’s how to get all of your Google calendars working on your iPhone  or iPad:

  1. First, lets make sure your Calendar is properly synced. The process is the same on both devices.
  2. Go to Settings, then open Mail/Contacts/Calendars.
  3. Next, select Add Account and Gmail. However, if you have already added your Gmail account, then instead of Add Account, choose Gmail from the account list.
  4. Toggle the Calendar switch to On.
  5. Otherwise, add your Google account information and a description of the calendar, and ensure that the Calendar option is switched on. Syncing will begin when you next open the Calendar app on your iPhone or iPad.

Next, you must choose which calendars to sync to your phone or tablet:

  1. To do this, you need to visit the following Google website:
  2. Provided you’re signed into your Google account, on this page you’ll see a list of all your calendars, with a check box against them.
  3. Tick the boxes of the calendars you want to sync with the iPhone and iPad.
  4. It’s important to note that shared calendars need selecting individually, and the default setting is “Off.” This means when a new calendar is shared, you must repeat these last few steps to ensure it syncs with your iPhone and iPad.
  5. Click save.
  6. Open the Calendars app on your iPhone or iPad and wait for it to sync.
