9 . To set an audible alarm for the event, tap the Alert option. The Event Alert

window temporarily replaces the Add Event screen. In the Event Alert window,

tap on the option for how much advance notice you want before the

scheduled event. Your options include None, At Time of Event, 5 minutes,

15 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours, 1 day, 2 days, or 1 week before the

event. Once you tap a selection, you are returned to the Add Event screen.


A Second Alert option is also available from the Add Event screen. If

you want to add a secondary alarm to this event, tap the Second Alert option and

then set it.

10. Tap on the Show As option to classify how you want an event to appear

within your calendar. The default option is Busy. This is information others

can see if you opt to share specific calendars with other people.

11. Tap on the URL field to add a website address associated with the event.

12. Tap on the Notes field to add text-based notes you want to associate with

the new event. It’s also possible to paste content from other apps into the

Notes field.

13. Tap the Add option to save the event. Tap the Cancel icon to exit without

saving any new information.


As soon as you create a new event, that information syncs with

your iCloud account and all other computers and/or mobile devices that you have

linked to that account. If you have the Calendar app set up to sync with another

scheduling app or online service, your new data syncs with that app.

This near instant data synchronization also applies if you delete an event.


Instead of manually entering event information into your iPhone or iPad using the

virtual keyboard, or importing/syncing scheduling data from another computer

or device, you always have the option to use Siri. Refer to Chapter 2, “Using Siri,

Dictation, and CarPlay to Interact with Your Mobile Device,” for more information.
