How to View and Hide Calendars on Your iPhone

By Joe Hutsko, Barbara Boyd

You now have one or multiple calendars on your iPhone. Calendar neatly presents the data in four formats: in portrait (vertical) view, Calendar displays a year-at-a-glance, a month-at-a-glance, a day-at-a-glance, which displays the dates of the associated week across the top of the screen, and a scrollable list of your events and appointments.

Turn your iPhone to the landscape (horizontal) position to see several days at-a-glance — 5 on an iPhone 5 or later, 3 and a half on earlier models. To choose which calendars you want to see:

  1. Tap Calendars on the Home Screen.

  2. Tap the Calendar button at the bottom of the screen.

    A list of your calendars opens.


  3. Tap the name of the calendar you want to see or hide.

    If there’s a check mark next to the name of the calendar, events in that calendar show up in the four views. Note that the Calendars are color-coded. Events shown in List and Day views are color-coded to respond to the calendar they come from.

  4. Tap Show All Calendars if you want to see all events.

  5. Tap Done.

    Calendars opens to the view you most recently used.
