Our office is using Google Apps. I have it set up to sync calendars against Google, but none of my Other Calendars appear when I click the calendars button on the iPhone. Is this possible?

I've tried the sync instructions, but navigating to from safari on the iPhone assumes you will log in with a Google account, not a Google apps account.

This question is probably obsolete today. Is it? – ddaa Apr 9 '15 at 12:19
@ddaa I think you are probably right, but I don't know how to repro to see because I already have it set up :) – Michael Pryor Apr 10 '15 at 19:04

Apparently this is possible:

Okay, the Google instructions aren't what I would call stellar for this particular setup procedure but they are correct. It's as simple as going to, then logging in if necessary, choosing iPhone, and finally choosing the Calendars you want to Sync with your iPhone. It worked for me for 2 Calendars. Hope this helps!

  1. Complete Google's instructions
  2. Open Safari on your iPhone
  3. Navigate to
  4. Select 'Sync'
  5. Select your device
  6. Check the boxes next to the Calendars you want to sync (It will only let you choose 5 total, including the "US Holidays" one)
  7. Click 'Save.'

I found the answer

This is the correct answer, especially if you're looking to sync Google Apps calendars. I would note that the 'your_domain' part needs to be the full domain. If your domain is '' then replace 'your_domain' with '' and not just 'example'. – Babak Oct 8 '15 at 18:29

There are some pitfalls to getting your iPhone to sync up with the calendars you'd like, but it is possible.

Navigate Safari to If Google complains, that your device is not supported, it's most likely because of your language settings. In that case, locate the link to change your language on the bottom of the page, and change it to English (US). The link I've provided should do that automatically, but in case it doesn't, well, you know what to do.

Now you should see a list of mobile devices associated with your Google account. Pick the one whose settings you want to change.

You'll see a list with all your calendars. At the top of the page, you'll see how many calendars you'll be able to sync your phone with. Pick the calendars you'd like to sync, tap Save, and you're done.

Full Google Calendar integration is possible. Once your Google calendar is sync-ed up using the iPhone settings, open Safari and go to . Choose 'Sync' and Select your device. Then check the boxes next to the Calendars you want to sync.

For extra utility use this Facebook calender export application to unify all your calendars in one place (just be sure to set the time zone correctly when you create the FBcal for Google Calendar).

Slightly different approach, which avoids using the Google software: I subscribe to all my Google Calendars within iCal on my Mac, via Calendar -> Subscribe, which then syncs to my iPhone.

It isn't necessary to do it on your mobile device.
