    Is this the process that you have gone through?

    Can you take a screenshot of what you see and post it here (making sure there is no personal info showing)?

    It sounds an awful lot like a problem that was happening for some people in iOS 6. The solution was to go to the iCloud settings and make sure Calendars was turned on.

    If I remember correctly both the Calendar and Contacts app would be missing the Edit option until this was done. For those that did not want to use iCloud, apparently the Edit button would remain after you turn the iCloud syncing back off.

    I have been into Apple today and I think they have sorted it, but to be honest the guy I spoke to was a bit vague so I will let you know......

    I have finally managed to sort it, due the system being different it was hard to work out how to do it but it's now sorted.

    Before you could add someone to your calendar and they could see everything on it, now your have to add calenders individually so if you have , work, home, shifts etc you have to share them all individually rather than sharing the calendar as a whole.

    Sharing the calendar as a whole is no longer available on my iPad as the IOS 7 update has changed it to the same method as the 5c

    To the best of my knowledge you could never share the whole calendar app. You could use the same Apple ID (for iCloud), or some other account like GMail or Yahoo, and that would put all calendars in that account on both devices, but to share with someone who uses a different iCloud account you've always had to share the individual calendars.

    It all seemed very simple before and now it's not straightforward .... So maybe that's it ?
