With the native Calendars app in iPhone, it's fairly convenient for users to manage their daily events or business agendas in an orderly way so they won't miss any important moments. If you have a load of calendars saved on iPhone, chances are you've somehow lost some data from it. You aren't alone as many other users may have been accidentally deleted the calendars on iPhone.

In such cases, you may have urgent need to recover the deleted calendar events from iPhone so that you can access the data. Well, you can now gain peace of mind by following the ways of recovering calendars on iPhone, even the files have already been deleted or disappeared without notice.

Restore Missing Calendars via iCloud on iPhone

One of the most hassle-free ways to get deleted calendar files back on iPhone is to restore with iCloud—if you've enabled Calendars syncing feature in iCloud before loss, the deleted calendars should be uploaded to iCloud Drive. Head to drive and try restoring calendars from an earlier version:

4. Click Restore again to confirm to recover calendars to iPhone. Note that your current calendars as well as reminders will be replaced with the ones in the chosen backup when restoration is completed.

Of course, this option doesn't do you any good if you never created calendar archives within iCloud prior to deleting calendar data from the iPhone.

2. Move down, then select Accounts & Passwords.

3. Tap on the accounts which you used to keep calendars in sync, Gmail for example, and then toggle on Calendars option. Wait for a while, and all calendars will reappear on iPhone in Calendars app.
