I'm trying to update my iCal calendar. I want to transfer the info on my iPhone to my Mac only. I'm worried that if I try syncing in iTunes the events on my iPhone will be overwritten by iCal. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
The problem is, when we try to sync iPhone calendar with Mac computer, we are not able to view the contents on our Mac. The calendar events are very important ones, and they can be very useful for work or daily life which we don't want to take the risk to lose them, however, the events keep getting lost when iPhone is synced with iTunes, and can't be found anywhere.
As one kind of most important data in iOS devices, calendar events are saved in the iTunes backup, if you have created one, and the backup can be updated to gain more iPhone data. When the data is lost in iPhone, you can restore your phone with the backup to get the lost data back. Restoring iPhone with iTunes is always the easiest way to get your lost data back to iPhone. When the calendar events are gone, you can recover deleted calendar from iPhone by restoring the backup.
As iTunes doesn't provide the sync for calendars anymore, you need to use iCloud to sync iPhone calendar with Mac computer. If users have enabled iCloud on their iPhone, they are able to upload the data to the cloud. When the iPhone calendar events are save in the iCloud backup, you can view them on your Mac computer with ease. The iCloud backup is easy to be done. When your iPhone is connected Wi-Fi and charger, and the screen is locked, then the files in your iPhone will be uploaded to the cloud. You can log into iCloud on your Mac computer and view the calendar events. The method is easy to use, but note that the events in your calendar are not saved permanently in iCloud, and users should download the calendar events from iCloud to their Mac iCal App. Apart from iCloud, is there any way that can help users transfer calendar from iPhone to Mac with no any data loss? The answer is YES. The following guidance will show you how to do that.
