    In Calendar on my wife's iPhone, birthdays don't show. The birthday calendar is active however. On my wife's iPad, birthdays do show. I checked and compared the settings three times now, but I can't figure out why birthdays don't show. On my own iPhone and iPad (and iMac) birthdays are shown.
    - we sync contacts through iCloud
    - my wife syncs her own calendar through iCloud and so do I
    - my wife has an iPhone 5s and an iPad 2
    - I have an iPhone 5s and an iPad Air 2

    Am I overlooking something?

    I think she just doesn't care about you and your birthday and keeps removing it. #toughbreak

    Well she complained she almost forgot the tomorrow's birthday of a friend of her because it wasn't in het iPhone calendar (but like I said her iPad is OK).

    I solved it. I deleted my iCloud account (through which the contacts are synced) and added it again. After a few minutes, the birthdays showed up.

    i'm having the same issue, but with facebook birthdays not showing up in calendar. i've even added a calendar to my gmail account to sync it. it worked perfectly on my android phones, but ios calendar just refuses to show them. if i download the google calendar app, it'll show tho. and yes.. all boxes are ticked off.
