Discover how to get the most out of your iPhone or iPod touch, from making calls, browsing the web, managing your time, and getting around town to taking notes, shooting photos, and listening to music. In this course, author Garrick Chow shows how to perform all of these tasks and more, and introduces the enhancements built into iOS 6, including enhanced language support and commands for Siri, shared photo streams, and the new Reply with Message feature for handling incoming calls. The course also includes hands-on demonstrations on how to accurately type and efficiently use finger gestures, and offers tips for personalizing the setup of the iPhone and iPod touch. An extensive section on troubleshooting helps when the occasional glitch happen.
The calendar app on the iPhone or iPod touch supports subscriptions to CalDAV accounts. Basically, this means you can enter a server address and if necessary, a username and password to automatically sync your company's calendar or some other organization's calendar with your Calendar app. For example maybe you've setup a calendar for your family or work schedule using Google Calendar. You could link your iPhone to that calendar so you don't have to enter the event information by hand. So if you have an online calendar that supports CalDAV like Yahoo or Google calendars, you can subscribe to that calendar on your iPhone by going to Settings>Mail, Contacts, Calendars and in here tap Add Account, just like you would if you're adding a new email account, but instead choose other.
And then under Calendars tap add CalDAV account and in here just enter your account information. For example with Google Calendars or Google Apps accounts you would enter google.com as the server. And then enter your Google username and password. You can change the Description field if you like but I'll leave mine as is and then tap Next. If your iPhone or iPod touch was able to connect to your Calendar you'll see it appear under Accounts. Now I'll go back to my Calendar. Here I'll tap the Calendars button and this gives me a list of all the calendar categories I have on my iPhone.
These categories can't be created on the iPod touch or the iPhone, they instead either come from your computer's calendar program when you sync it with your device or they appear when you subscribe to a Calendar like I just did with Google Calendars. And here under Google I can see my Google Apps account shows up here. To make sure I see events from that calendar I'll just tap it. Or if I want to see events only from that calendar, I can tap Hide All Calendars and then select just that calendar. If I go to List view I can see three events on the Google calendar I've subscribed to. And the great thing about subscribing to a CalDAV calendar is that it's a two-way connection, meaning I can add events or make changes to existing events on this calendar and they'll be uploaded back to Google so I can see them if I access my Google Calendar from my computer.
So that's how to subscribe to a CalDAV account from your iPhone or iPod touch.
