Is there any time limit in the List view of the iPhone Calendar app, beyond which we cannot make any entries? Can this limit be changed to something else than the 2 years set by by Apple?


There is no limit in the Calendar itself – you can 'zoom out' by repeatedly tapping the Back button until you're in a screen where each year takes up about a single page. Scroll down to e.g. 2027, and you can create an event in the distant future without problems:

The List view does seem to have a built-in limit of two years, which can't be extended by settings.

  • Thanks for response,,but latest two years entries only showing in agenda list and not beyond that...Is there a way to see more than 2 years entries in agenda list..Like 2027 entry you created.. Mar 30 '17 at 1:47
  • Ah, you mean the List view. There seems to be no option to extend that period beyond two years.

  • Yes List view and there is no way to view beyond 2 years.....No idea why this limitation they have put on list view.... Mar 30 '17 at 8:30
  • In Google and blackberry phone there seems to be no such limit..Why is it so with apple phone..Really frustrating it is... Mar 30 '17 at 12:31

To add to the same "List view not displaying beyond 2 years". Calendar allowed me to enter an event beyond 2 years, but it will not find it if I search. The search takes me to the last week of 2 years.

I've switched to ToDo Pro for "far out" tasks.
