iOS calendar add birthdays but no anniversary. How can I add them from the contacts to the calendar?
Not directly through the iPhone, but, BirthDayScanner does exactly that.
It scans the Address Book for all dates. Then presents them to you, to choose and edit, or play around, and then generates events directly in iCal which can be synced with the iPhone.
Asked quite some time ago, and the feature was not yet implemented.
But there is a work-around, using your friend Google.
- Create/use a Google mail account
On https://contacts.google.com create a contact with birthday and/or other dates:
Add your Google account to your iOS/macOS device - how? read https://support.google.com/calendar/answer/99358
- In iOS Calendar, activate from that account the calendar Birthday
See your contact's birthday and/or other dates in the Calendar app:

Hmm, I can tell you how to add the field easily, but it doesn't seem to be widely supported. (Only Fantastical 2 on my Mac seems to automatically import this into it's calendar. I don't see it in the stock Calendar app on iOS or OSX, nor do I see it in Fantastical 2 on my iPhone.)
When editing a contact, click on + to add a new field. Choose 'Date' from the options. A new field will be added, and by default it will be of type 'Anniversary'. Just fill in the original date of marriage here, and you're done.
Note: I am using Google to sync contacts, but the field seems to be sync'ing correctly to my iPhone.
