Tip of the Day: How to Change What Day Your Week Starts in Calendar

In most western countries, the Calendar app on the iPhone or iPad has Sunday set as the first day of the week. But considering the work week tends to divide quite distinctly into weekdays and the weekend, with most of our appointments and business meetings taking place Monday through Friday, you may prefer to set Monday as the first day of the week. Or if you have an unusual schedule, you could set any day of the week you prefer to be the first day of your personalized week. Here's how:

Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars and scroll down to Calendars.

Tap on Start Week On and then select the day of the week you want your week to start.

Now when you open Calendar, the day you have selected will show up as the first day of the week.
