    Calendar subscriptions offer a convenient way for you to stay up to date with everything from national holidays to the match fixtures for your favorite sports team. In this article, we'll show you how to subscribe to a public calendar on your iPhone or iPad - all you need in advance is the web address of the calendar (ics) file.

    Note that if you want a calendar subscription to sync across all devices signed into your iCloud account, you'll need to subscribe to it on your Mac. To do so, open the Calendar app in macOS and select File -> New Calendar Subscription, enter the URL of the calendar to subscribe to, and then select iCloud in the Location menu.

    Very detailed steps; thank you. Wonder why it is so unintuitive?

    These iOS tips are gold. Often much more useful than the daily Samsung and Android news that populates MR.

    I have set up calendars for family, an activity group, work 'events', work schedule, lessons, etc.

    I'm a fan, and enjoy that subscribers can get notified on computers, phones, watches etc.

    I found a site that lists all the major college football teams' schedules and selected my favs. However they do not show up in my shared calendar. What am doing wrong? Do I need to restart my mac and my iphone?

    Actually I don't know the answer.

    I mostly set up my own but have a couple of locals groups I subscribe to for meetings. Once I subscribed it was in my Calendar without any further action in my end.
