And some even prefer downloading professional calendar apps to be the best assistant, so as to keep track of the to-do items and manage their daily schedules in a reasonable way! However, sometimes due to various reasons, your iPhone calendar possibly can't work properly as usual, such as the inability to add new tasks to your iPhone calendar. But don't worry! This passage summarizes the common iPhone calendar problems and the corresponding solutions to these issues!

Situation 1: iPhone Calendar Can't Save Events

Question: "It seems that my iPhone is having some problem with the calendar. I can't add events to the calendar or enter for the dates noted down before. I don't know what's the matter with my iPhone calendar! But each time when I try to enter the specific date to check for some events, the calendar will display it for a few seconds but then suddenly disappear from my eyes. Anyone can't tell me what happened to my iPhone calendar? Any advice for me? Thanks in advance!"

Answer: Well, in this case, the possible reason is that you have set up your iPhone calendar with iCloud or another online calendar service to sync only recent events. So, you just need to change your settings. Detailed steps are as follows:

> Enter Settings tab from your iPhone device.

> Go to Mail, Contacts, Calendars under Settings option.

Situation 2: Unable to See Attachments to Calendar

Question: "I liked writing something on a particular day and then added it to my iPhone calendar app under the corresponding date. But yesterday when I want to add some sentimental words to memorize my emotions of the day, only to find that I can't add my attachments to my iPhone calendar. Is something wrong?"

Answer: I have to say that you are behaving like a poet. Don't worry! First of all, you need to ensure that the format of your attachments is supported by iPhone calendar. The supported formats are: pages; keynote, and numbers documents; the documents created using Keynote version 6.2, Pages version 5.2 and Numbers 3.2 need to be compressed before being attached. Microsoft Office documents (Office ‘97 and newer); Rich Text Format (RTF) documents; PDF files; Images; Text (.txt) files; Comma-separated value (CSV) files; compressed (ZIP) files4. Secondly, make sure that the number and size of attachments is within 20 files and not more than 20 MB. Finally, open your Calendar once again and try refreshing the Calendar app within your iPhone device.

Situation 3: Avoid Calendar Information Lost

Question: "Well, my friend told me she accidentally lost all information from her iPhone calendar, including all the words she wrote to express her emotions at a particular moment. I also liked taking down my sorrows and happiness through words and record it to my Calendar to keep track of my daily life! But, I don't want to lose all these information all of a sudden. Is there any way to avoid sudden calendar information loss? Thanks!"

Answer: The best way to avoid this situation is to make copies of your Calendar from iCloud. Now, go to iCloud.com and log in with your Apple ID. Then open the Calendar and share it publicly. So, if you want to download the calendar information to your iPhone. You can copy the URL of this shared calendar and open it in any of your browsers (please note that instead of "http" in the URL, you have to use "webcal" before pressing the Enter/Return button). This will download and ICS file on to your computer. Then just share the backup calendar files from computer to your iPhone in one click.
