Adding US Holidays To Your iPhone Calendar

Saturday, May 18th, 2013 by | Filed Under: iOS

Have you ever noticed that the US holidays are not included in your iPhone’s calendar? Time and time again I have had to search for a Mother’s Day or have accidentally scheduled something on or too close to a bank holiday. Who has the time to manually enter them all in? 

Well, fear not — adding holidays to your iPhone calendar is super easy.

First you should go into your Settings and choose Mail, Contacts and Calendars.

Next, choose Add Account and scroll down to select Other.

Select Add Subscribed Calendar

In the server field, enter the following: and tap next when you’re finished. You may rename the calendar on the next screen if you want, then hit save.

It’s that easy! Now every US Holiday is now at your fingertips!

    Good comment. I’d like to do the same with iPad’s calendar, but there is no similar place in its calendar settings. Any help there? THANKS!

    Thanks, something I wondered about but never tried to search for a solution.

    Phyllis, touch the day if you are in month mode and you will see the holiday at the bottom of your screen, or goto day mode and it will be shown as an all day event at the top.

    Just what I was looking for, but it did not work. So I purchased HolidaysUSA from the App store. Works Great!!
