Adding Events to Calendar

The calendar program on your iPhone or iPad is a great way to keep track of appointments and deadlines, but how do you add events to your calendar so that you’re sure to remember them? In this video we will take a look at two different ways of adding event information into the calendar, one through the calendar app, and the other through Siri.

Step # 1 – Tap the Plus Button to Start a New Event

Once you’re inside the Calendar App, select the date that you want to add an event and tap the Plus Button in the upper right corner of the screen. This will bring you to the event details screen where you can add more detailed information about the event that you are adding.

Click “Done” and the event is added to your calendar and is represented by a dot on the date selected..
