Since upgrading to Yosemite, the calendar icon in my dock has been stuck on October 17. I have had no luck getting it to display the correct date.

Has anyone else run into/found a solution for this issue? Its driving me insane.


This is a little old, but for those still looking for a quick fix:

Open up the terminal and enter the following command:
'killall Dock'

This should reload your dock, including all of the icons thus updating the date displayed in the calendar icon.


I restarted the computer and unchecked the "reopen all windows" checkbox, and the issue was resolved when I logged in.

  • Unfortunately, this is only a temporary solution, I have found that the issue comes back a few days later, and can, again, only be fixed with a restart. – finiteloop Mar 11 '15 at 2:14

Seems calendar needs to be open to update icon on dock.

  • This is not the case for me, I never quit the calendar app and still have the issue. – finiteloop Mar 11 '15 at 2:14
