    1. Hi Alyson,

      do you want to remove a holiday subscription? If it is the iOS built-in holiday, you can’t remove it (the the ‘Note’ section in this post). Hence, you cannot see any subscribed calendar option.

      If it is another one, give me more information, please.

      Cheers,

      1. Hi KP,

        I tested it again and it still works on iOS 9.

        Two possibilities:
        Either you’re just waiting a couples of days till its release or you got an iCloud calendar subscribed on your Mac. Then just need to unsubscribe on your Mac!

        Cheers,

  2. If you go to your calendar app, click on the word calendar at the bottom and select hide all for all the calendars, you can then check which calendars you want to show up on your actual calendar. Hit done and it should clear all preloaded useless holiday calendars. Hope it helps!

  3. These instructions did not work for iPhone version 11.4.1

    This worked:

    Settings / accounts and passwords / subscribed calendars
