How to Add Events to Calendar from the Mail App

* This post is part of iPhone Life's Tip of the Day newsletter. . *

There’s two ways to add events in mail to your calendar app. With iOS 9 or later, there’s a feature in Settings that allows for Events Found in Mail to automatically be added to your Calendar app. You can turn this feature on or off. If you’d prefer to turn it off, you can also add individual Mail events to your Calendar app manually. This tip will show you how to do both.

To turn Events Found in Mail on or off, open Settings. Tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars. Scroll down and found Events Found in Mail. Toggle it on for automatic mail events added to Calendar app and off for manual input.
