Windows Phone 8 logoFinally, Microsoft succeeded in setting up iCloud email, calendars and contacts on Windows Phone 8.1. Getting iCloud email and iCloud calendars running on Windows Phone 7 and Windows Phone 8 is a hardship. Getting iCloud contacts working is impossible, because Windows Phone 8 Update 2 (GDR 2) supports CalDAV and CardDAV only for Google contacts and calendars. However, coming with Windows Phone 8.1, iCloud email, calendars and contacts are easily set up and working seamlessly with read and write. The ‘read-only’ detour over Google calendar subscription or Outlook.com calendar subscription is not necessary anymore.

iOS 8 icon

iOS 8 iconLearn how to remove subscribed calendars from iPhone and iPad running on iOS 8. Apple changed the way to remove subscribed calendars coming with iOS 7 and iOS 8. Subscribed calendars can only be hidden within the calendar app, but cannot be deleted there. In iOS 8, iOS 9, iOS 10 and iOS 11, subscribed calendars are removed in ‘Settings’. Further more, a detailed Apple support document for iOS calendar app is missing. There is only a documentation for iCloud calendar subscriptions on Mac OS X.
