Adding iCloud Calendar to Outlook

Now that you have set up iCloud for Windows, you can easily add your iCloud calendar to Outlook. Follow these steps:

  1. Open Outlook on your computer.

Syncing iCloud Calendar with Outlook

To ensure that your iCloud calendar stays synced with Outlook, you will need to make sure that the “iCloud” option is selected in the “Internet Calendars” tab in Outlook.
