How to Unsubscribe From a Calendar on iPhone
Your iPhone calendar app is capable of subscribing to all sorts of special calendars such as regional and national holidays, astronomic highlights, sports events or formula 1 races. Subscribing has the benefit of staying up-to-date with any changes the manager of a calendar makes to the event details. It will also download the latest new events without you having to manually add anything. After a while, some of these calendar subscriptions will contain irrelevant information due to a lack of updates or maintenance. Here’s how to unsubscribe from a calendar on your iPhone to get rid of unnecessary bloat in your iPhone Calendar app.
Viewing your calendar subscriptions
First of all, determine whether you actually want to permanently delete or disable the calendar subscription in question. You can view your current subscriptions by going to the “Calendar”, then scrolling down all the way and selecting “Calendars” from the menu bar at the bottom. The section titled “Subscribed” contains all of the calendars which can be updated remotely and are accessed through an online subscription.
You can hide individual calendars from all of the views in the app by simply unchecking the entry in this list. This will hide all of the associated events. The overview doesn’t allow us to fully remove the subscription however, this can be done in an entirely different place.
Deleting a calendar subscription
Open up your “Settings” app and select “Mail, Contacts, Calendars”, then go to “Subscribed Calendars” to see a list of your current subscriptions. Tap the name of the one you would like to remove, then tap the next entry to delve deeper into the individual settings for this subscription. at the very bottom of the Settings for the calendar subscriptions you’ll find a button labeled “Delete Account”. Tap it to permanently remove the calendar from your subscribed calendars on all linked devices. Don’t worry, other calendars will not be affected by this.
