How to Restore Calendars & Reminders from iCloud

Let’s have a look at the necessary steps to restore missing calendars, events, and reminders data using iCloud. Make sure if you don’t use iCloud for syncing and restoring your data from iPhone and iPad, this feature will not be available to you.

Step 1:

Firstly, open any web browser like Safari, Chrome, Firefox, etc. from your PC, Mac or iPad and input in the address bar. Now log on to iCloud by tapping on the “arrow icon” once you’ve input in your Apple ID and password.

Step 2:

Now move to the settings section within iCloud by tapping on “Account Settings”, at right below your name and profile photo.

Step 3:

Here, just tap on “Restore Calendars” under the Advanced section. However, it is located under the page. This will open a new pop-up menu.

Step 4:

Now, you’ll see several archives of your calendar events and reminders. Tap “Restore” next to the date before you lost your data. It’ll take a few minutes for the restoration to complete.

Step 5:

Once done, tap “Done” to close the window and finish the process. Backing up your calendars from an archive will cancel and recreate all scheduled events. Also, all shared information related to a calendar event will be deleted as well.

That’s all!

What’s More?

However, the archive of calendars you select to recover will replace the existing calendars on all your devices logged into the same Apple ID.

Currently, calendar events on your devices will be stored and recover to iCloud as a separate archive.

In addition to restoring calendars, Apple’s iCloud website also enables you to recover contacts, files and documents from iCloud Drive, and Safari bookmarks too. However, also make sure that you can’t access these data recovery features using the android browser. So if you’re trying this procedure using an iPhone, you’re out of luck.

Considering how iCloud backup is turned on by default on all supported Apple devices. However, recovering your lost calendar events can’t be much of a hassle. But use iCloud to have access to this feature. However, If you manually turn off iCloud at some point for whatever reason, this procedure will not help you to restore your lost data.

Every user has 5 GB of free cloud storage space who signs up for an Apple ID account which is usually adequate enough to save most contacts, calendars, bookmarks, etc. However, if you like to restore your images, or a full iPhone or iPad, you’ll likely want to subscribe to one of the paid plans that offer more space.

With iCloud enabled, you don’t have to rely on physical storage. However, your data is automatically stored in the cloud whenever your device is turned on and connected to power. You will also need a fast internet connection if you’re going to be uploading and downloading a lot of data.
