    I wasn't quite sure where to update this since the problem could be the Mac or it could be phone or it could be...

    I will setup an appointment on the Mac and it doesn't make it to the phone. Than a day or two later, there it is. I verify that the phone is signed into iCloud and that I used the cloud calendar on the Mac, but it's not there (until later). The fact that it does get there a few days later tells me it's setup right.

    This has happened before and that time I discovered a way to get the phone to refresh itself, but I've forgotten how I did it.

    I've not noticed this to happen when I setup the appointment on the phone. BTW, I've got a 27" Mac about a year old and an iPhone 6+ and both are current on the OS.

    How is your iCloud account set up to refresh on your phone--via push, fetch, or manually? As I recall to manually refresh it you really just need to go into the Calendar app and that's essentially it, but you even more specifically you can go to Calendars screen in it and pull down on it to refresh.

    In Settings/Mail,Contacts,Calendars/Fetch New Data Push is one, but Calendars is Fetch, iCloud is Push. iCould is the only Push.

    Yes, the pull down, I had forgotten that. Thank you.
