I've had a problem since upgrading my iPad to IOS 5 in that I can't seem to edit/delete some events on my calendar. It mainly seems to be repeating events that have the problem. Any ideas about what may be causing this?

How are you getting the calendar data? is it from a third party like Google Calendars? or is it synced with iCloud? –  Graeme Hutchison Nov 15 '11 at 14:42
    
Are you syncing with your computer? –  Graeme Hutchison Nov 15 '11 at 14:44
    
Most of the events are entered on my iPad. I also synch the device with my calendar in MS Exchange. I don't use Google calendars. The device is synched to my PC about once a week. –  SuperFurryToad Nov 15 '11 at 15:17
    
seems you may be syncing twice, try the answer I posted here, it should apply for the iPad aswell. apple.stackexchange.com/questions/31184/… –  Graeme Hutchison Nov 15 '11 at 15:20
    
I checked those settings iTunes, and it's actually not currently configured to sync with Outlook. Contacts, Calendars are all unchecked. So it must only be syncing via iCloud. –  SuperFurryToad Nov 15 '11 at 15:38

Have you checked your www.iCloud.com account to see if the events are editable/duplicated or have any errors in fact. Also check your icloud settings and make sure in (Mail-Contacts-Calendars) you only have one calendar synced, and make that one you iCloud one.

I can edit the events on iCloud and they don't have any errors. Currently I am only synching the iCloud cal. –  SuperFurryToad Nov 16 '11 at 16:39

I had an event in my iPad but it didn't appear on the iPhone or the Mac.

There was no delete or decline option, but as soon as I changed the calendar it was sitting in, Decline showed up and I was able to remove it.

I had the same problem. I upgraded from Snow Leopard to Lion and lost my Quicken (didn't upgrade Quicken before going to Lion)... and with it all my info attached in my calendar. Any calendar events "attached" to Quicken in my calendar on my ipad can not be edited or deleted now. This was all originally created on my Mac.

The Fix:

What I did to correct this was, on my iPad, in iCal, touch the "Calendars" button in the top left corner. In "From my Mac" I unchecked the Quicken Data calendar. All the events disappeared. I created a new calendar and recreated the events I wanted. Everything works as expected for me now!

You can fix this if you use a mac, delete event from your iCal then sync iPhone in itunes and go to info, calendar, sync whatever you save as, i.e, home, work, etc then push sync. If you deleted event from your iCal once you sync the event goes away
