Follow the steps carefully

  • First, lets make sure your Calendar is properly synced. The process is the same on both devices.
  • Go to Settings, then open Mail/Contacts/Calendars.
  • Next, select Add Account and Gmail. However, if you have already added your Gmail account, then instead of Add Account, choose Gmail from the account list.
  • Toggle the Calendar switch to On.
  • Otherwise, add your Google account information and a description of the calendar, and ensure that the Calendar option is switched on. Syncing will begin when you next open the Calendar app on your iPhone or iPad.
