I just got the iphone 5s and wanted to see when i last saw one doctor--it shows no entries although i saw him in 2013.

On my mac it shows all the times i saw him.

Is there a fix for this?

In Mail, Contacts & Calendars settings, make sure "All Events" are being synced.

Hi everyone,
I have the same problem here. I have some calendars with events from 2009 to 2015 that can be seen in iCloud on my PC. But I can't see events in my iPhone 5s before 1st January 2014.
With my iPad 1 with iOS 5 I only see events from November the 25th of 2013.
But with my iPhone 4 with iOS 7, I can see all events and calendars.
In calendars settings I have "all events" option selected on 3 devices.
I have installed "awesome calendar" in all devices too.
Any idea? Could it be a iOS problem?
PD.- I have noticed that recurrent events (only yearly ones) and birthdays are shown in every year

checked your settings /Mail Contacts Calendars/ Calendar Sync settings?

you can set that to a variety of time periods (2 weeks 1 month 3 months 6 months and All)

on one of our iphone5 that was set to 1 month I had to

quit the Calendar app

go into the Mail Contacts Calendars settings choose the iCloud account, turn the Calendars off for the iCloud account, when prompted chose 'delete from My Phone', then turned Calendars back on for the iCloud account.

This seemed to refresh the Calendar entries and sync the older ones

Bear in mind that even if you can see them when manually scrolling thru calendar entries, if you search for them in a spotlight search it wont return any results for ones that are more than 1 year prior to current date set on your phone.

Thank You!!!!
This solved the problem. It seems it was a sync issue.

Thanks everyone.
