How can I delete iPad calendar events when no edit button appears? Clicking on events only results in "details" button.

  • It sounds like you are subscribed to a calendar that you cannot edit. Check and see if the events where no edit button appears are all in one calendar. – dwightk Apr 7 '14 at 16:14

Tap the event, then tap the Edit button on the top right. Scroll to the bottom and tap Delete Event. If you don't have the ability to delete the event (it's a shared calendar) then the Edit button will not appear.


Go to the month calendar and double-click on the event. It does not give you the option to delete but you can decline the invite.


Ok, I guess there's no answer for this yet, this is how I did it

  • Add a new calendar

    • on the Calendar app, select Calendars, Add Calendar
  • On the event you're trying to delete, select the newly added calendar in the Calendar option

  • Go back out to your calendars, and delete the Calendar you added on the first step

  • Your event is gone gone


At the bottom of iCal tap Calendar and it will show you list of all events automatically put into your iCal that has no Edit option. Select item and adjust here.
