iCloud: About subscribed calendars

You can use iCloud to push your subscribed calendars to all of your Macs and iOS devices.

If you've subscribed to a calendar using the Calendar app in OS X Mavericks and OS X Mountain Lion, or the iCal app in OS X Lion, you can use iCloud to push your subscribed calendars to all of your Macs and iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch). The instructions in this article work with any of the calendars to which you're subscribed, such as the Holidays calendar included with OS X Mavericks. 

  • To make a subscription push to other devices, you must first subscribe to the calendar on your Mac. If you subscribe to the calendar on your iOS device, iCloud won't push it to your other devices.
  • Your iOS devices and Macs must be signed in to the same iCloud account.
  • iCloud.com and Microsoft Outlook don't display subscribed calendars that are pushed to iCloud.

Setting up a new calendar subscription to push with iCloud

When subscribing to a new calendar on your Mac, choose iCloud from the Location menu:

Calendar subscribe sheet

If iCloud isn't available from the menu, choose Apple menu () > System Preferences, then click iCloud and make sure that you're signed in to iCloud.

Setting up an existing calendar subscription to push with iCloud

If you've already subscribed to the calendar, follow these steps in Calendar or iCal on your Mac:

  1. Click the Calendars button in the upper-left corner of the window. A list of Calendars will open.
  2. Select the subscribed calendar from the list.
    In Calendar for OS X Mavericks, your subscribed calendars appear in the “Other” section of this list. 
  3. Choose Edit > Get Info to open an information window like the one pictured above.
  4. Choose iCloud from the Location menu, then click OK.
    If iCloud isn't available from the menu, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click iCloud and make sure that you're signed in to iCloud.
