Google Calendar on iPhone

Since iOS 3.0, CalDAV was introduced allowing Google Apps Calendar or Google Calendar to be used to sync with iPhone calendar. The setup is pretty straight forward. But the tricky part is figuring out how to access the Shared Calendar of your friends that you have added to your calendar!

But just for the record, here’s how you can add your Google Apps Calendar into your iPhone.

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Select Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
  3. Under Accounts, select Add Account….
  4. Choose Other.
  5. Under Calendars, select Add CalDAV Account
  6. Enter the following details:
    Server: www.google.com
    User Name: email@yourdomain.com (Google Account or Google Apps Email Address)
    Password: your password
    Description: My Gapps CalDAV (or whatever name that’s suitable)
  7. Click on Next on top of your screen.

You Gapps CalDAV will be setup and ready to go in your Calendar. However, it will by default be opening only your own calendar. So how do you sync your shared calendar too!

Simple! Just go to:
https://www.google.com/calendar/iphoneselect
while logged into your Google Account or Google Apps Account. You will then be given the option to select or uncheck calendars appearing in your Google Calendar you will want to have them sync-ed on your iPhone.
Google Apps User can go to
https://www.google.com/calendar/hosted/yourdomain.com/iphoneselect
replacing ‘yourdomain.com’ with your actual Google Apps domain name. I have tried simply using the link above, and all is fine too.
