How To Remove Events From an iPhone Calendar

Iphone Calendar

Every iPhone comes packed with a Calendar app, which lets you keep track of all events. You can use the Calendar app to either view the days or set different events. While adding an event to the Calendar is important, you must also learn to remove events from the iPhone Calendar. And today, we are going to discuss this in detail.

Quick Answer

To remove events from the iPhone Calendar app, open the application and tap on any date with a dot. Now, tap on the event name and select “Delete Event”.

The Calendar app is easily one of the most useful applications preinstalled on the iPhone. Not only does it let you see the dates, but it also lets you schedule your entire month or year by setting up different events.

How To Remove Events From the Calendar App

Thankfully, Apple was kind enough to make the Calendar app easy to navigate. However, some people can still get confused about how to delete an event after creating it. If you’re one of them, continue reading below. 

  1. Find the Calendar app on your iPhone and tap on it.
  2. Find the date that has the event you want to delete. Keep in mind that dates with dots are the ones that have events.
  3. Tap on the date to open up a new section.
  4. You can tap on the event name from here and then delete it.

How To Remove Repeated and Shared Events From the Calendar App

There are times when we set some events to repeat while scheduling them. In such cases, the Calendar app will ask you whether you want to delete all future events or the specific event only. If you select the “Delete This Event Only” option, the Calendar will remind you of future events. But if you select “Delete All Future Events”, you will no longer receive any notifications about it.

On the other hand, if you are trying to delete an event that someone has shared with you, you will get the luxury of choosing from three different options; Accept, Maybe, or Decline. If you previously accepted the event, you can delete it by tapping on “Decline”. This will remove the event from your Calendar. However, keep in mind that it will not delete it permanently, as you will still be able to see it in your inbox. This is done so that you can accept it again if you change your mind.

How To Remove Spam Events From the Calendar App

iPhone users often complain about different issues linked to the Calendar app, one of which is the Calendar spam messages. The app itself does not cause this problem but because the user visited a website with many pop-ups. Usually, illegal streaming websites and adult websites are the causes of Calendar spam messages. If you’re stuck in the same boat, don’t worry, as we have a solution for you.

If there is a Calendar event that is constantly giving you notifications, you can turn it off through the app. For this, you need to follow these steps.

  1. Open the Calendar app on your iPhone.
  2. Find the spam event on your Calendar.
  3. Tap on it, and tap on the “Unsubscribe from this Calendar” option that can be found at the bottom. 

Sometimes, the spam notifications keep appearing even after you unsubscribe from the Calendar app. In such situations, you need to open the Settings app on your iPhone, tap on “Calendar”, and open the “Accounts” settings. From here, you can tap on “Subscribed Calendars” to delete unwanted Calendars. This will allow you to remove the Calendar from your device completely. In other words, you will no longer receive any notifications about it.

Final Words 

This was how to remove events from the iPhone Calendar. The process is pretty simple, and you will hardly spend a minute doing everything.

An important thing to remember is that iPhone Calendar spam can send out different notifications, such as “Your iPhone Is Severely Damaged By Viruses” or “Your iCloud HACKED.” In such cases, no matter what happens, do not tap on the notifications. Just click on “Cancel” and remove the Calendar from your device. Tapping on “OK” or similar options can lead to more issues, such as your data getting stolen.
