iCloud: Show the Birthdays calendar

Show the Birthdays calendar

If you include people’s birth dates in the information you have in iCloud Contacts, you can show a special Birthdays calendar that displays them all.

  1. In iCloud Calendar, click the Action pop-up menu in the sidebar, then choose Preferences.

  2. In the General pane, select “Show Birthdays calendar,” then click Save.

  3. Show or hide the Birthdays calendar by turning it on or off in the Subscriptions section of the Calendars sidebar.

To modify a birth date, use iCloud Contacts; changes are reflected in iCloud Calendar within a day.

You can also see the Birthdays calendar on your iOS devices and Mac computers by selecting it in the Calendar app.
