So you have several different Google Calendars, but have only managed to sync the primary one with your iPhone and iPad. Not to worry. Though it’s not the most intuitive system, by following these instructions, you’ll be up and running in no time. Knowing when you’re supposed to go to lunch with your boss has never been easier.

Syncing Google calendars with your iOS device

Step 1: First, lets make sure your Calendar is properly synced. The process for doing so is identical on the iPhone and iPad, assuming you’re using the same version of iOS.

Step 2: Go to Settings > Calendars and select AccountsAdd Account. If you’ve already added your Gmail account, then instead of tapping Add Account, choose Gmail account from the resulting list.

Step 3: Toggle the slider directly right of Calendars to sync your Google calendars with your iOS device. If you’re setting up a new account, enter your Google credentials and a description of the calendar, and ensure that the Calendars option is toggled on. Syncing will begin when you open the Calendar app on your iPhone or iPad.

Choosing which calendars to sync with your iOS device

Step 1: To do this, you first need to visit the sync settings in Google Calendar.

Step 2: If you’re signed into your Google account, you should see a list of all your calendars, with a check box next each to them. Tick the boxes beside the calendars you want to sync with your iOS device. Shared Calendars need to be selected individually, and they’re unchecked by default. This means you must repeat these last few steps when a new calendar is shared to ensure it syncs with your iOS device.

Step 3: When you’re done selecting calendars, click the Save button in the bottom-right corner. Afterward, open the Calendar app on your iOS device and wait for it to sync. That’s it! All your calendars should be ready and waiting for you.
