How to set default calendars, alert times, sync, and more on iPhone or iPad

iOS allows you to set not only your default calendar, but the default alert time and sync period as well. Having good defaults can make it much faster to add new events and appointments, especially if you often add events to the same calendar, and with the same alert requirements.

You can toggle automatic time zone shifting, and even turn off invitation alerts if you need a little less notification in your life.
