My iPhone 5c won't let me add any events to my locally stored calendar that are more than 1 year in the future. When I add them, they stay for 30 seconds or so and then disappear. Why is this happening and how can I fix it?
I think it's some kind of glitch in your phone or settings are not correct.
I checked on my iPhone 5, which runs iOS
v.9.2.1 and event was saved even 3 years further. It's doesn't depend is it 1 year ahead, or 1 day ahead.
Try to troubleshoot:
- When you are in a Calendar App, click
calendarsbutton in the bottom, and make sure the proper calendar is selected with checkboxes.
- Check if the settings of synchronization for calendars are correct.
Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
- Try placing event to some other, closer date, closer than one year, if it doesn't work - proceed further.
- Try a Restart. Press and hold the
Sleep/Wakebutton for a few seconds until the red "slide to power off" slider appears, and then slide the slider. Press and hold the
Sleep/Wakebutton until the Apple logo appears.
- Try system update, check if there are newer versions of iOS
- Resetting your settings. You can also try resetting all settings.
Reset All Settings. You will have to enter all of your device settings again.
"Reset all settings" finally solved the problem on my iPhone 6. Note that I chatted and spoke with Apple Support and was ultimately told that the functionality simply wouldn't allow appointments over 1 year out. Don't believe it.
