For Seniors: Review Your iPad 2 Calendar
Tap the List button.
The Calendar changes to List view, which displays your daily calendar with a list of all commitments for the month to the left of it. You can use the Timeline at the bottom of every view to move from the current day, week, or month to another. Simply tap the day, week, or month you want to display.
You can also tap the Forward or Backward button (the arrows) on either side of the Timeline to move forward or backward one day, week, or month at a time. Tap the Today button to jump back to the current day, week, or month.
