Step 3

Click the "Info" tab at the top of the screen when the "More Info" screen appears.

Select "Sync Outlook Calendars."

Tips & Warnings

  • If you are syncing your iPhone with iTunes for the first time, run through the setup that will allow you to sync automatically. With this installation, you also name your device.

  • Your Windows Calendar information must be stored in an Outlook-compatible calendar application.
