How to add and delete calendars on your iPhone and iPad

The built-in iOS Calendars app can keep track of all your events and appointments, all in one place. But it doesn't have to keep them all in the same actual calendar. If you prefer to keep your work life and personal life separate, or to have a specific calendar for kids activities, or a special vacation, or for anything else, it's easy to setup. Since each calendar gets its own color, and you have the ability to hide or show individual calendars, it's a great way to stay organized and stay sane at the same time.

Additional calendars are easy to setup, and if you ever stop needing them, they're easy to delete as well.

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 also set how far back your iPhone and iPad will sync those appointments and events, so you can keep handy just your most recent entries, or entries going back for months. You can toggle automatic time zone shifting, and even turn off invitation alerts if you need a little less notification in your life.
