Scheduling tomorrow today is ad admirable habit. We schedule to keep time free, and to know what to do — when and where it is best to do them.

Yahoo! Calendar, on the web, travels well. On an iPhone, the Calendar app is still closer than the browser, though. Wouldn't it be great to have Yahoo! Calendar events appear there automatically, and to edit appointments, too?

Fortunately, setting up Yahoo! Calendar and iPhone Calendar to synchronize automatically and in the background is easy and painless.

Sync Yahoo! Calendar with iPhone Calendar

To synchronize Yahoo! Calendar with iPhone Calendar automatically:

  • Tap Settings on the Home screen.
  • Go to Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
  • If you have not yet added the Yahoo! account as an email account to iPhone Mail:
    • Tap Add Account… under Accounts.
    • Choose Yahoo!.
    • Tap your name under Name.
    • Type your full Yahoo! Mail address under Email (or Address).
    • Enter your Yahoo! Mail password under Password.
    • Tap Next.
    • Make sure Calendars is ON.
    • Tap Save.
  • If you have already added Yahoo! Mail to iPhone Mail:
    • Tap the desired Yahoo! account.
    • Make sure Calendars is ON.
  • Press the Home button.
