    I have three appointments at the same time today. The calendar widget is only showing one of them, with no apparent indication of the other two appointments.

    Is this the same thing you have?

    If so, I guess it's a bug, as we should be able to see everything on calendar.

    Are you using the agenda view where it's just a list of events (vs the day view where it's a block of time displayed as a timeline with events that happen in that time)?

    Actually, I'm using month view, where it shows a list of the events for that day underneath the selected day. But my question isn't about the view while in the calendar app, it is referring to what you see in the calendar widget which is present in notification center pull down.

    I understand. But the view in the calendar app affects the view of the widget actually. I was mainly asking what it normally looks like in the widget for you--a list or a timeline.

    Really?!?! I had no idea that it affected it. Any idea how I can get it to show more than one event on the Widget?

    Normally it should do that, but since the iOS 9 betas it's been inconsistent and more often than not shows just the next upcoming event.

    Going into the calendar and selecting the day view and then toggling between the timeline and agenda view in it will get it to show the full day of events, but you'd need to do that on a daily basis.

    Ultimately I ended up using another app (like Calendars) that provides a nice widget that works fine showing all events (and even full day events too, which the default calendar still doesn't show).

    I'll play with it and take a look, I thought it would show multiple events for the same time, at least...anyway. Just wanted to make sure mine was working "correctly."

    The truly correct way would be to show all events for the day, at least that's how it worked in iOS 8. In iOS 9 it seems to mostly show the next (single) upcoming event, unless you go into the calendar and change the view back and forth to get it to populate the full day as it did before. Unfortunately instead of improving it and adding support (for at least an option) for full day events, they actually made it worse in a sense to only display just the next event.
