Staying organised and keeping track of your schedules has become more important than ever. Outlook, a tool used by countless businesses and individuals, helps users manage appointments and tasks. However, the challenge lies in making this resource readily accessible when you’re on the move, away from your computer. Fortunately, there’s a solution – syncing your Outlook calendar with your iPhone.
You can seamlessly integrate your Outlook calendar with your iPhone and Outlook’s scheduling capabilities will be right at your fingertips, ensuring you never miss an important event, whether it’s related to work or your personal life. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you manage your calendar.
Follow these steps:
Download Microsoft Outlook for iPhone
Before you start, make sure you have a Microsoft subscription with Outlook and know your Microsoft account. Then, go to your iPhone and get the free Microsoft Outlook for iOS app.
If you’re using an iPad, Outlook on iOS now supports iPad Split View, allowing you to view emails and your calendar simultaneously on one screen – a highly recommended feature.
Log in and enable Auto-Sync
Once you’ve downloaded the Outlook app on your iPhone, proceed to your iPhone Settings. Select “Passwords & Accounts” and then tap on “Add Account.” You will see a list of compatible account options for your iPhone.
Look for “Outlook.com” (usually among the first options) and click on it.
Input your Microsoft account information
Enter your Microsoft Account details to connect Outlook on iOS. When prompted, choose “Yes” to sync calendars, or enable it later in the app settings if you miss this step.
Enjoy seamless syncing
With the same Outlook account on all your devices, calendar changes sync automatically. Whether you add an event on your PC or adjust an appointment, your iPhone updates within seconds. No need to manually sync each time you make a calendar change.
Import iCloud calendar information (If needed)
If you have calendar data stored in iCloud from previous calendars and want to incorporate it into your Outlook Calendar, it’s now a straightforward process.
Log in to iCloud
Access iCloud from a Windows computer using iCloud for Windows for a simpler process compared to doing it from your iPhone.
Select desired data
After logging in, ensure that you check only the box with “Mail, contacts, calendars, and tasks.” Click “Apply” to proceed.
Choose specific data to sync
Decide to sync all or select specific data. Calendar syncing provides a unified schedule on both work and personal devices, simplifying calendar management.
Sync all calendars on MacOS
When using your iPhone, you cannot pick and choose which calendars to sync from Outlook on a Mac. Outlook keeps your data in the cloud, limiting your selectivity to the calendar stored locally on your laptop.
Hide specific calendars
However, you can hide specific calendars. To do this, open the Outlook app on your iPhone, select the Calendar icon, and then your account icon.
Uncheck unwanted calendars
Uncheck the calendars you don’t want to view, and you’re all set.
By following these straightforward steps, you can effortlessly sync your Outlook calendar with your iPhone, ensuring you stay organised and up-to-date, whether it’s for work or personal appointments. Enjoy seamless access to your schedule on the go!
