    So my problem is a little unusual. My employer blocks iCloud. I can't get to the website and I can't subscribe to my iCloud calendars with Outlook (what we use at work). I've tried subscribing to my iCloud calendars (I have a personal, a family, one for my wife and one for my daughter) by using google calendar but the syncing doesn't work consistently. I'll add a new event on my iPhone and it's not unusual that it will never show up when viewing it in the google calendar. I've tried using other cloud based calendars (zoho) and have similar issues. I'd like to be able to view my personal calendars at work without picking up my iPhone all the time. Does anyone know a good way around my problem?

    Thanks!

    Fastmail....It costs a few bucks, but I find their service to be top-notch. Their calendar and contacts now support push, just like their email, on the iphone. You can even see your iCloud calendars in the Fastmail calendar app. Check it out...

    You can try Outlook calendar to see if the sync is better. Or you can try using the Google Calendar app on the phone as that should not have sync issues.

    When I use my android phone, I hate to log into Google (story for another day), I run all my mail and my icloud Calendar though my outlook app. I generated an app specific password for it, so no need to use my apple password to log in. Works practically flawlessly to get my iCloud calendar in Outlook.
