    According to the list of fixes with 10.5.5, the following is addressed:

    • iCal: Resolves an issue with syncing published calendars.

    This item, however, isn't any more specific, and doesn't reference the iPhone at all. But, its a known issue that iPhone over-the-air calendar syncing via MobileMe does not include any subscribed calendars - only local ones.

    Does anyone know if this fix listed above addresses the MobileMe to iPhone subscribed calendar sync??

    I didn't want to initially try it as its a little bit of a hassle to re-sync everything if it doesn't work.

    However, I did try it yesterday after giving 10.5.5 the shakedown. Subscribed calendars in iCal still do not sync over-the-air (via MobileMe) to the iPhone. A USB iTunes sync with MobileMe off is still required to get subscribed calendars on to the iPhone.

    Kind of a pain in the rear for me since I can't see changes to my wife's iCal calendar until I get home to sync it manually - which defeats the point since by then I'm already home.

    I've left Apple feedback, so I can only hope that this will be coming at some point.


    From the article -
    When syncing subscription calendars between a Mac and an iPhone/iPod touch wirelessly via MobileMe Sync: Subscription calendars do not appear in your iPhone/iPod touch.

    No resolution given yet.
