How to Sync Google Calendar on an Apple Calendar

Apple Calendar to Google Calendar

Apple and Google live in two different worlds. Google runs around on the Web and on Android devices whereas Apple runs on its own platform i.e. on iOS devices and Macs.

The problem generally people face is when you have a Mac or an iPhone and you have to use Google Calendar. For example, some events created on Google Calendar but use an iPhone.


One can access iCloud account and its calendar on a desktop but the features are limited and you can’t see this on an Android device.

Let’s see how to see Google Calendar on an iOS device or Mac.

On a Mac, open the Calendar app and click ‘Calendar”.

Choose “Add Account”

There will be a list of Calendar account providers which include iCloud Microsoft Exchange, Google, Yahoo, other CalDAV account.
