Use iCloud calendar subscriptions

Calendar subscriptions are a great way to stay up to date with holidays, sports, social media, and more. And with iCloud, you see all of your calendar subscriptions across all your devices.

Get started

Set up a new iCloud calendar subscription on your Mac

  1. In Calendar, choose File > New Calendar Subscription. 
  2. Enter the calendar’s web address, then click Subscribe.
  3. Enter a name for the calendar and choose a color to help you identify it on your calendar.
  4. Choose iCloud from the Location menu, then click OK.

Add your existing calendar subscription to iCloud

If you have a calendar subscription on your Mac that you want to see on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you can add it to iCloud.

  1. Open Calendar.
  2. Click the Calendars button in the upper-left hand corner of the window to see your list of calendars.
  3. Select the subscribed calendar from the list.
  4. In the menu bar, choose Edit > Get Info. 
  5. Choose iCloud from the Location menu, then click OK.

Can’t see your calendar subscription?

  • Before you can see a calendar subscription on all your devices, subscribe to the calendar on your Mac first. If you subscribe to the calendar on your iOS device, iCloud won't update it to your other devices.
  • Check that your iOS device and Mac are signed in to iCloud with the same Apple ID.
  • If you visit or are using Microsoft Outlook, you won't see your subscribed calendars updated with iCloud.
  • If you restore your calendars from, you'll need to subscribe to your calendars again.
