If you’re all of a sudden getting unwanted notifications and invites on your iPhone or iPad, it’s likely that you unknowingly tapped a link that subscribed you to calendar. Thankfully, there’s no calendar virus that’s taken over your iPhone or iPad, and you can get rid of it quickly by finding the rogue subscribed calendar and then unsubscribing from it. Examples of all instructions in the steps can be seen in both the YouTube video above and the image collection located beneath the steps.

Steps to Remove iPhone and iPad Calendar Spam

  1. Open the “Settings” app and then tap “Calendar” in this menu. The Calendar screen is displayed.
  2. Tap “Accounts” in this list, and then tap “Subscribed Calendars.” You’ll see a list of the calendars you’ve subscribed to on your Apple account.
  3. Review the list of calendars you’re subscribed to and identify the items you don’t feel belong or that you know you didn’t knowingly subscribe to. Tap one of the items you don’t recall subscribing to. An information screen for this subscribed calendar is displayed.
  4. Tap “Delete Account” at the bottom of this screen. A message appears asking if you’re sure you want to delete this account and remove this calendar from your iPhone or iPad. Tap “Delete Account” again. You’ll be returned to the Subscribed Calendars screen where that calendar will no longer be displayed in this list, and all entries associated with that deleted calendar will be removed from your iPhone or iPad. As a result, you’ll no longer get the unwanted notifications or invites you were getting previously.
