How do you organize your appointments, update your agenda, plan events, and keep on time with your iPhone and iPad? The built-in Calendar app, of course!
Calendar lets you can create and edit appointments, share agendas, invite friends and colleagues to events, get alerted, stay on track and — most importantly — on time! You can set up Calendar to work with Apple's iCloud, Google Calendar, Microsoft's Outlook, and even CalDav calendars from your own or your company's servers. What's more, thanks to Siri, you can add, review, and even change appointments quickly and easily, and with the power of your voice.
Since iOS has a unified calendar database, whatever you add or change in Calendar will also be reflected in any third-party calendars you have installed, and vice-versa. Yes, everything is unified and stays organized, regardless of where or how you prefer to use it.
