  1. Thanks so much. i tried the CalDav approach which seemed to work except for I was no longer able to invite attendees. I followed the instructions you mentioned above, and it worked beautiful on my iPad2.

  2. Great description.
    However, when I try to configure the different calendars to synchronize via m.google.com/sync I get the message that my device (iPhone) is not supported.
    Is there another way to configure google sync.

  3. Ignore my comments from above. Found the solution myself on google fora.
    Just make sure that you select the language “English”. Other languages will give the message that the device is not supported.

  4. Don’t really get this post. I have setup my Google account the regular way: without the use of Exchange and I see all my three calendars (main calendar, my business calendar and even my wife’s shared calendar)

  5. I’m still learning from you, but I’m making my way to the top as well. I certainly liked reading everything that is posted on your site.Keep the stories coming. I enjoyed it!

  6. I absolutely can’t get this to work with my ipad 2. Not only with it not sync correctly with my ipad, just trying to get the calendars onto the ipad creates all sorts of events. It’s really frustrating!

  7. I have spent the past hour farting about on other sites, but your info has done what I wanted to do in 10mins… Thanks

  8. great instructions! worked smoothly on my ipod touch 3g. i bookmarked your site for future reference. you’re an excellent teacher! thanks!

  9. Thanks for the great instructions. Have been seaching for this for some time now. The only thing was that after several attempts I found out that I have to change the language from Danish till English and then it worked like a charme….. Thanks…

    • Finnish language has the same problem – changing to english makes it work. Very nice, at last all calendars there.

  10. Didn’t work for me as I do see the other calenders at the m.google.com website but they won’t appear on the iphone 4s my old iphone 3gs did work and both have OS5 so I don’t understand why it didn’t appear on the iphone 4s. any tips I can try?

    Kind regards,


  11. Hi Sorry it did work seems it was not working as the cooking was turn off so I couldn’t see the manage devices screen so now I turned it on so now I see all the calenders again on my iphone 4s thanks a lot …

  12. Hey- I went through these steps and it worked fine (and has been working fine for months) on my ipad. Just got an iphone though, and am unable to sync multiple calendars. When I go to https://m.google.com/sync/, I see that the calendars are already selected. I hit save, and when I go to my iphone calendar, only my main calendar shows up (not multiple calendars). Is it not possible to sync multiple calendars on both iphone and ipad??

    • Hi Anna, Yes, it is possible to sync multiple calendars to multiple devices. When you go to Google Sync, ensure that you are managing the correct device. On the Manage Devices screen you should see an entry for your iPhone and one for your iPad too. I just did the very same thing on my new iPhone so now I have this kind of setup on an iPhone, an iPod Touch and an iPad so I know it works for sure 😉

      Also, make sure you add the Google Calender account as an Exchange account and NOT as Gmail.

      Let me know what happens.


      • I have the same problem…:
        I AM syncing multiple Google calendars to my iPhone (4).
        I CAN’T sync multiple Google calendars to my iPad (4).

        When visiting https://m.google.com/sync (from the iPad) I get no login screen and therefore no “Manage Devices” screen?
        When visiting https://www.google.com/calendar/syncselect (from the iPad) I get the sync settings for my iPhone only. Strangely it’s a Danish site. I am from Denmark, but I have changed the language of Gmail and Goggle calendar to English (US) and even the iPad’s language to English.

        Please help!

  13. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and all. But think about
    if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts
    more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this website could definitely be one of the
    most beneficial in its field. Excellent blog!
