    Hi all,
    I get an e-mail for a get together......example....
    “Breakfast at the diner, 9am, other attendees are. Accept/decline”.
    It goes to the calander as an invitation.
    How do I “break” that e-mail to calendar connection to stop these calendar notices??

    Thnaks, Ken

    I’m not certain, but turning off this might help.

    Settings > Calendar > Siri & Search > Find Events in Other Apps.

    There used to be some specific settings about calendar/mail invites, but I can’t seem to find them.

    A quick read of the iPad User Guide only talks about how to manage invitations in the Calendar app. There is no mention of how to block them. Apparently they are considered a feature of Microsoft Exchange and some CalDAV accounts.

    An invite is a specific kind of email, not to be confused with the event auto-detect feature of Mail which highlights dates and times to make quick calendar entry possible. It also highlights things like phone numbers, locations, and email addresses for quick access to the related apps.

    It’s been a while since I did this for security reasons, but here is how you get invitations to go to your Mail App rather than your Calendar.

    1. Go to your iCloud Calendar page via a desktop browser. (Apple doesn’t allow you to use iCloud.com via mobile Safari.)
    2. Click the gear icon in the lower-left corner.
    3. Select Preferences.
    4. Click the Advanced icon.
    5. In the Invitations section, change the option from In-App Notifications to Email to iCloud Address.
