Why won't my Mac calendars sync to my iPhone? (Part 1)

iPhone 5

Episode 948

Adam from Putnam Valley, NY

Adam and his wife have iPhones and iCal doesn't sync with their iPhone calendars. Leo says it may be due to turning off iCloud that prevents it from syncing. Leo avoids the whole problem by using Google as his main calendar option. He syncs Calendar on his Mac with Google via Exchange and it syncs just like it should to his phone. Then he never has to connect his phone to the computer to sync.

Why is iCal syncing to my wife's profile instead of mine?

Episode 907

Chris from Valencia, CA

Since Chris says he can sync his contacts just fine, Leo says to check the settings to see if iCal is syncing to something else, like Google Calendar. It won't sync on it's own, so there has to be a setting in there that's been changed. It can get very confusing when using multiple Apple ID's, and it's possible that he got the wires crossed somewhere. At this point it may be a good idea to delete both accounts and start over.
