How to Transfer iCloud Calendar to Android Smartphones

With the launch of Google Pixel phones, many iOS users have migrated to the Android phones. This migration is, however, limited to the Pixel phones only as Galaxy Note 7 witnessed steep decline in sales post blasts. During this shift, you would like to transfer photos from iPhone to Android and move files from iCloud Drive to Google Drive.

But you may not have paid enough attention to your iCloud Calendar, which is an important thing you should do during migration. This process of transferring iCloud Calendar to Android phone doesn’t include any syncing process. As a matter of fact, this information includes a few workarounds using iPhone, Mac or PC, and SmoothSync.

Follow three different methods to get your iPhone’s Calendar onto your new Android phone.

How to Transfer iCloud Calendar to Android Phone

Even if you have been using iOS system, you must have a Google account. On your Android phone, you need to set up your Google account first. And if you have never used Google account, you need to create your Google account now.

On iPhone

Step #1: Open Settings app on your iPhone.

Step #2: Tap on Calendar.

Step #3: Next, tap on Default Calendar.

Step #4: You will see that your Default Calendar is selected under ICLOUD section. Here, you need to choose your Gmail account you are using with your Google calendar.

This will automatically sync your iPhone calendar with your Google calendar, and hence, all your dates added to iPhone calendar will be a part of Google account calendar. When you are using your Google account, the event will be flashed on your laptop or desktop computer.

On Mac or PC

Step #1: Open www.icloud.com on your Mac or Windows computer.

Step #2: Enter your Apple ID and password, and then Click on Calendar square.

Step #3: Next, click on the Share Calendar icon (a broadcast icon) next to the calendar you want to share.

Step #4: A pop-up will appear there titled ‘Calendar Sharing’. Click on the check box ‘Public Calendar’.

Step #5: After a few seconds, you will see a URL below the Public Calendar check box. Copy this URL and paste it in the web browser, but do not click or hit enter button.

Step #6: Now you need to change ‘webcal’ word with the ‘http’ in the URL, and then press ‘Enter’ button.

Step #7: Here you will be asked to download an ICS file or the file will be downloaded automatically in the Downloads folder of your computer.

Step #8: From here, you need to return to iCloud Calendar and uncheck Public Calendar.

Step #9: Open Gmail link and log in with your ID and password.

Step #10: Click on Google apps button located at the top right corner of your computer screen. This button is a square made of nine small squares.

Step #11: Time to click on Calendar option.

Step #12: Click on Settings button seen below your profile pic in the top right corner of your computer’s screen.

Step #13: Hit the Settings option from the drop-down menu.

Step #14: Next, click on Calendars option given under Calendar Settings from the top left corner of your computer screen.

Step #15: Click on Import Calendar link.

Step #16: Click on Choose file tab from the pop-up.

Step #17: Find and select the ICS file you have downloaded earlier from iCloud.

Step #18: Finally, hit the Import button.

Hurray! Your iPhone calendar events are now transferred to your Google account. You can move multiple calendars one by one by following the same method.

Sync iCloud Calendar to Android Phone with SmoothSync

SmoothSync for Cloud Calendar is an Android app that allows you to sync your iCloud Calendar and reminders with your Android smartphone. You need to download SmoothSync from Google Play Store.
