    Delete Events

    I, too, couldn't figure it out, but I finally did...go the event you want to delete, press EDIT, then scroll to the bottom and there's your DELETE EVENT in red. Press there. (iPad2)

    Cannot delete an "invite" that has been automatically added to the calendar. There is NO delete button that shows up with any of the swipe or scroll options already listed. Any other ideas?

    Cannot delete an appointment from the Ipad Calendar

    I have a similiar problem. I have an reoccurring appointment on my calendar, from somebody who I don't know, and is not one of my contacts, not even sure how it got there.

    The problem is, I cannot delete it. There is no red delete button on the details window that I normally see. I tried some of the other ideas in this thread to no avail.

    This appointment only shows up on my ipad (and iphone), but does not show up on my outlook, or google calendars when I look at those through my desktop.

    Any ideas?

    Okay, probably should have done this before I posted, but I went ahead and deleted the account from my ipad (mail and everything, it was on the gmail calendar), and it disappeared. I then readded the account and it has not reappeared, so hopefully it won't show back up.

    Not sure if that will work, but can't hurt to try.

    Delete event only when logged in icloud.com

    Some events are added to your iCloud calendar, and you cannot then edit it directly on your iphone/ipad as usual (by editing or modifying the event and going down to the red button remove), you need to go on icloud.com -from a Pc or Mac, not from your ios device, and log in, and select the calendar icon: select the event you want to remove, and in the pop up window select "refused" instead of "accepted" (not sure if this is the correct words as my configuration is in French). this will remove the event from the calendar you have on your iphone/ipad ...

    SOLUTION: Remove repeated event in iPod / iPhone from .ics file

    After working on this problem for an hour or two, I found a solution that may be applicable. First, a few details about my system / situation:


    1) Windows machine & iPod Touch 2G running iOS4 - not using iCal (only syncing with Google calendar)
    2) Don't remember exactly how, but downloaded a .ics file created by someone else and put it on my calendar. The calendar entry repeated indefinitely on my iPod calendar and was undeleteable, despite having deleted it on my Google calendar.


    Solution:
    1) Go to your google calendar
    2) If you haven't already, delete the offending repeating event. You may need to have the person who created the event delete it, I don't know how the syncing between calendars works. The person who created my event had deleted theirs already, but the repeating event was still showing up.
    3) Go to settings -> calendars
    4) Click 'export calendars' to save your google calendar locally as an .ics. You might want to make sure it saves correctly somehow (i.e., open it with Outlook) because if it doesn't you'll lose your entire calendar.
    5) Delete the offending Google calendar (not the .ics, the one in the browser). Note: If the offending event is in your principal calendar, you won't be able to delete the entire calendar, just the events in it, but this will work just fine.
    6) Recreate the particular google calendar, if necessary.
    7) Import the .ics file you saved off previously, saving the events in the pristine calendar.
    8) The offending event is gone!! Once it syncs with your iPhone / iTouch, you shouldn't see it any more.

    I had the same problem and deleted the birthday information from my contacts as suggested. Great advise and stress reliever!

    I went to iCloud on my laptop and opened calendar. Clicked on invitation / appointment and hit delete. This deleted it from my iPhone calendar as well.

    That's it -- thank you! Go to Contacts in Outlook, open the individual contact and click on Details, select Birthday and click on None.
