I have two google accs with two different calendars. I want to use them both in the calendar app. However when I try to add the second google account, after entering the google acc details it just jumps back to the calendar settings. Are multiple google accs supported for the iPhone? I can do it with no problems on my mac.

iPhone 6, 10.2


The problem actually seems to be with the fact that the google account I wanted to add didn't have a gmail address associated with it. So for the purposes of the calendar what I did was adding CalDAV account instead.

I'll leave this open as a differently formulated question in case someone wants to elaborate on why it's impossible to add a google acc without gmail.

It is supported. This is what it looks like under settings -> calendar:

Try adding the account as a mail account and then turning off mail and turning on calendars. This is what it looks like in the calendars app:

  • NoahL's answer works for Contacts as well, using the CardDAV option.

CalDAV (located under the "Other" account option) is possible, but if you have 2FAC enabled, it's not going to work out of the box. You'll have to create a special application specific password and use that password instead of your regular google password in order to get it to work.
