A secret I learned about Google Calendar and iOS

I hear complaints every day about iOS devices. One of the biggest complaints I hear is that the native calendar is useless to them because they can't sync with multiple calendars from Google. Today I learned that they actually can and how to do it. So, before you toss your iPhone for an Android one, try this.

Assuming you have already have your Google account set up on your iOS device and can see your primary calendar, this is how to get the rest of your Google calendars to sync:

  • Go to
    (Google Apps users can go to, replacing 'your_domain' with your actual domain name.)
  • Select the calendars you want to sync with your iOS device
  • Save your settings

That's it. All your selected Google calendars should appear on your device once it syncs again. Full instructions from Google (including how to add your Google account to the device) can be found here.

If this doesn't work for you, or you have any other questions, please let me know. I'll be more than happy to find the answers for you.
