How do I sync my Google calendar with my iPhone?

So I want to be able to add appointments/events/tasks on either and have those changes reflected on both.


You should really use Google Sync for iPhone to have all the benefits of Calendars (and even Mail if you need it).

  • The Exchange (Google Sync) mail support is a little lacking. I continue using IMAP for mail, and use Exchange for contacts and calendars. Works great! – NReilingh Aug 18 '10 at 2:18
  • Nice, this one looks like it just works! – longda Aug 18 '10 at 2:19
  • @NReilingh why you think is lacking for mail? – gsharp Aug 18 '10 at 22:16
  • @gsharp I believe there are issues with syncing saved drafts. Google has this information posted in "known limitations." google.com/support/mobile/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=139635 – NReilingh Aug 21 '10 at 15:28
  • I find it curious that an iOS feature is called "Google Sync" - it's baked into the OS using a combination of Exchange ActiveSync technology and plain old CalDAV for the rest. – bmike Oct 10 '11 at 17:36

In iCal, add a new CalDAV account.

Description: Google:you@gmail.com

Username: you@gmail.com

Password: yourpass


Server Address: www.google.com

Server Path: /calendar/dav/you@gmail.com/user/

Port: Auto

Use SSL: CHecked

Make sure you have sync enabled in iTunes.

  • To make a new CalDAV account go to ICAL > Preferences > Accounts and click the plus "+" button. – Brian Bolton Aug 18 '10 at 1:43
