    [HR][/HR] The calendar on my iPad2 is synced via iCloud to both of my Macs. For some reason, all of the events on the iPad2 calendar are duplicated. However, that is not the case on either the calendar on iCloud or my Macs.

    Unfortunately, if I delete any of the dupes on the iPad2, that event will be completely deleted from both iCloud & my Macs (since they are all synced).

    So, how can I delete the duplicated events on the iPad2 without affecting those same events on iCloud or my Macs,

    Thank you kindly for any help.

    Check to see if you have two calendars set up. I had that problem because I sync everything thru Google calendar, but didn't turn off the onboard built-in calendar. Turned off the onboard calendar....viola no more dupes.

    Try this.

    Go to Settings > iCloud and sign out of the account.

    Now go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars and see if you still have an iCloud account. If you do, delete it.

    In both cases choose to delete the contacts and calendars. This only deletes them from the iPad, not iCloud or the Mac, so your data is safe.

    Now go back to Settings > iCloud and sign back in.

    Thank you for the suggestion, but I happily resolved the problem. I simply went to Settings > iCloud & turned off calendar syncing. When prompted, I chose to delete all events from the iPad calendar. When I turned syncing back on, the calendar was restored with no dupes. Thanks again.

    I also have the same problem. I deleted all calendars from the iPad and iPhone, my Outlook calendar only has two appointements in it for the entire year, but If I go to icloud.com and log in and look at calendars, I still see THREE of every event. I'm at wit's end.

    Thanks,

    If at some point in the syncing cycle you duplicated those appointments for real, then the only way to get rid of them will be to manually delete the extras.

    Visit icloud.com on a computer and check out the Calendar app. If they are duplicated there, then manual deletion it is.

    I went to icloud.com and there were dups there. I deleted the dups, but now when I sync the remaining event does not show up on either my iPhone or iPad. I'm sorry, but iCloud stinks.

    Thanks for taking time to reply.

    Sign out of iCloud in Settings, and sign back in.
