For Seniors: Add Appointments to iPad's Calendar

The Calendar app on iPad allows you to track all your appointments and special events. Add appointments to the calendar so you can more easily keep track of your busy schedule.

Appointments and events can be set up to repeat when needed. For example, if you have a weekly luncheon appointment, you can enter it once and tell Calendar to automatically repeat it for you every week. Appointments and events be viewed by day, week, or month by the way — whichever view is the most convenient.

With any view displayed, tap the Add button.

The Add Event dialog appears.

Enter a title for the event and, if you want, a location.

For example, you might enter Lunch with Sally as the title, and La Hacienda as the location.

If the event will last all day, you can simply tap the All-Day On/Off button and forget about setting start and end times.
