How to add CalDAV accounts and Calendar subscriptions on your iPhone and iPad

While iOS makes it easy to add popular calendar accounts to your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, you can also manually add any calendar that supports the open CalDAV standard, and subscribe to any calendar that provides a compatible URL. As long as you have the login information for the CalDAV account, or the link for the subscription, you're good to go.

How to add calendar subscriptions to your iPhone or iPad

  1. Launch the Settings app from the Home screen of your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap on Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
  3. Under the Mail section, tab on Add Account....
  4. Now tap on Other.
  5. Under the Calendars section tap on Add Subscribed Calendar.
  6. Enter or copy in the server location of the calendar. This is typically a web address that ends in .ics.
  7. Enter any username, password, or SSL info you need to. Most times you don't have to with public subscriptions. When you are finished, tap on the Done button in the upper right hand corner.
  8. That's it, the subscribed Calendar will now show up in your default Calendar app.
