Send and receive invitations in Calendar on iPhone
In the Calendar app , send and receive meeting and event invitations. iCloud, Microsoft Exchange, and some CalDAV servers let you send and receive meeting invitations. (Not all calendar servers support every feature.)
Invite others to an event
Tap the event, tap Edit, tap Invitees, then tap Add Invitees.
Or, if you didn’t schedule the event, tap it, tap Invitees, then tap .
Type the names or email addresses of invitees, or tap to select Contacts.
Tap Done (or tap Send if you didn’t schedule the event).
With Microsoft Exchange, and some other servers, you can invite people to an event even if you’re not the one who scheduled it.
If you don’t want to be notified when someone declines a meeting, go to Settings > Calendar, then turn off Show Invitee Declines.
