How to Share iPhone Calendars
Beginner's guide to sharing calendars via iCloud on an iPhone or in the iCal application on a computer.
Organize group events with friends or show your work schedule to your spouse by sharing calendars right from your iPhone. Using iCloud to share your calendars makes planning outings with a large group of friends or your entire family simple and collaborative.
Share Calendar From Your iPhone
Share your iPhone calendar with one or more people directly from your iPhone using iCloud. Private calendars can be shared with other iCloud users, so friends with iPhones or other Apple devices will be able to view your shared calendar. If your friends do not use iCloud or Apple devices, they can view your shared calendar using Microsoft Outlook on a Windows computer.
Open the Settings app, scroll down to iCloud and ensure that Calendars is turned on.
Open the Calendar app and tap Calendars.
Tap the info icon for the iCloud calendar you want to share.
Although you can view other synced calendars, you can only share iCloud calendars from the Calendar app.
Tap Add Person.
Enter the name or email address of the person with whom you want to share your calendar.
If the person is in your iPhone Contacts, you can also enter her phone number.
Tap View & Edit to view or change sharing settings.
Tap the Allow Editing toggle switch to the off position to prohibit the person from editing your calendar.
Allow editing to permit your friends to create upcoming events, change the details of an event or track the responses of invited guests.
Tap Add Person to share your calendar with more friends or family members.
Tap Done to finish sharing your calendar.
Make Calendar Public From Your iPhone
Allow anyone to subscribe to a read-only version of your calendar by making it public. Visitors can view your calendar on an Apple computer, with Microsoft Outlook, or with any app that supports the iCalendar file format. This option may be helpful if you want to share a calendar, but don't want anyone to be able to make changes to it.
Tap Calendars in the Calendar App.
Tap the info icon for the calendar you want to share.
Toggle the Public Calendar switch to the on position.
Tap Share Link to send this link to whomever you want to subscribe to your calendar.
Choose whether to share the calendar link via message, email, AirDrop or another method.
Share your calendar link on Facebook and then tag the friends you want to subscribe.
Share Calendar From Your Computer
If you prefer, you can also share your iCloud calendar from your computer. After you share the calendar via iCloud you will be able to view and edit the people with whom you share your calendar on your iPhone.
Hover over the calendar you want to share and click the Share button — the icon looks like a sideways Wi-Fi signal.
Enter the name or email address of the person with whom you want to share the calendar.
Click the down-facing arrow and select either View & Edit or View Only.
Repeat steps 1-3 for each person with whom you want to share your calendar.
