Deleting an Appointment on the iPhone Calendar

by Avery Martin Google

    The iPhone's calendar app makes it possible to manage your appointments and schedule while traveling. While you can update your events on your computer, deleting an event directly from your iPhone provides a more convenient option. The Calendar app on the iPhone enables you to set appointments with specific times, locations, invites and other data related to the event. Provided you created the event yourself using the iPhone or a calendar synced to your computer, you can manually delete the event.

    Step 1

    Tap the "Calendar" app on your iPhone.

    Step 2

    Select the "Month" view to view a list of all dates in the month.

    Step 3

    Tap the date with the appointment you want to delete.

    Step 4

    Choose the appointment from the list of appointments for the selected date.

    Step 5

    Tap the "Edit" button.

    Step 6

    Scroll down to the bottom of the event details and tap "Delete Event."

    Step 7

    Tap "Delete Event" again to confirm you want to remove the appointment.
