How to Sync Multiple Google Calendars on iPhone

Do you have multiple Google Calendars? Want to have them all synced to your iPhone or iPad? I’ve received a few questions about how this is accomplished and it’s fairly straight forward. You’ll need to setup Google Sync (push) on your iPhone first to enable it. If it’s not, you won’t be able to see them on your iOS device.

First: Setup Google Sync on your iPhone

Follow these instructions from Google.

Okay, now you’ve setup Google Sync for your iPhone. Let’s move on to the calendars.

Google Sync will let you sync up to 25 calendars at one time

  1. Open the Safari browser on your device and go to http://m.google.com/sync

    If I already have my main google calendar synced to my iPhone, should I still choose “keep existing calendars?” per the Google instrux? I get a warning that I may get duplicate entries. All I want to do is add a NEW calendar. Thanks!
