How to Move an Event from One Calendar to Another

In the Calendar app, it’s helpful to have multiple calendars for different areas of life. You might have a personal reminders calendar, one for work, one for home, one for family, etc. Each calendar is also color coded to make telling them apart easier; you can also view individual calendars. What happens, though, when you accidentally place an event in the wrong calendar? Easy, simply follow these steps to move it to a different one.

To do this, open your Calendar app and locate the event you want to move. For our example, I’ll be moving my event: Lunch w/ Peggy. Tap the event. As you can see, this event is currently located in my Work calendar. Here, you have two options: tap Calendar located directly under the Event, or tap Edit at the top of the page.
