How to sync Google Calendar events to Apple Calendar on your Mac, iPhone, or iPad

GoogleAppleCalendarSync

Google Calendar is a time-management and scheduling calendar service developed by Google. Google Calendar allows users to create and edit events. You can alternatively use the Google official app for your iPhone or iPad to save time and make the most of every day instead of integrating it with Apple Calendar. With this option, you will occasionally flip between the Apple Calendar and Google Calendar to avoid conflicts. This is what this guide is out to prevent, thereby showing you how to integrate Google Calender with Apple Calendar. If you still wish to use the Google App for time management and scheduling, you will need to download it from the App Store. Here are some related guides: How to restore accidentally deleted calendars, bookmarks, files, or contacts from iCloud, how to set up and Configure Office Online Server, and how to complete Microsoft Office 365 Family Subscription.

Why should I use a single Time Management Tool?

This ensures you see all of your events in one calendar so you can get a clear picture of what your schedule is like. So if you have both a personal and work calendar etc., you can sync the two to view it all one one. In addition to having a number of native apps and web apps, both calendars have a backend that syncs everything. I have found most people use the Apple Calendar app to manage Google Calendars, and I will be showing you how this is done in this guide.

I am fine with access to the Calendar events only. Therefore, I will switch others off and click on the “Save” button.

Note: Emails, contacts, and calendar events will now sync directly with your Google Account. To sync only your calendar, turn off the other services.


Now you can continue adding more accounts. Else, you have successfully synchronized your Google Calendar with your Apple Calendar.

As discussed in the first paragraph, you may want to use the Google Calender App itself. Here are some features of it. Google Calendar can turn even the most unorganized person into the most efficient one. From scheduling appointments to connecting people from around the world, this calendar does more than just remind you what day it is today. You can schedule remote meetings with video links, coordinate multiple calendars to find the best time, and embed it to your website so your clients can book some time with you. Below are some more features of Google Calender.
