Windows Phone 8.1: Setting Up iCloud Email, Calendars And Contacts

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.

iCloud logoSince a couple of days, iCloud Calendar subscription via Outlook.com / Windows Live is working again on Windows 8 mail app, Windows Phone 7 and Windows Phone 8. Microsoft needed more than one and a half-year to fix the syncing problem. A lot of user, including me, were upset about the long period of time and the insane comments of some Microsoft forum administrators. I have checked my iCloud calendar subscription (‘read only’) for the last days and I can state that it is working again.
