    I subscribed to a public calendar online for the first time on my iPhone. It is a calendar which lists/updates Spring sporting events for my son. When subscribing, it gave me the option to use "Google," "iCal," or "Outlook." I chose iCal and instantly all of the events from this public calendar appeared on the calendar on my iPhone. i then went to check to see if these calendar events synced to my ipad, and they are not there? Are the iphone and iPad supposed to sync the events from the subscribed calendar? All of my other calendar events sync between the two devices. My iphone/iPad calendar sync with Google and I tried subscribing to this calendar with Google but this also didn't work. Any input is much appreciated.

    I assume the iCal option gives you a link of .ics to subscribe to, right? If you use iCloud calendar, pushing subscriptions to all devices is only possible if you subscribe it via Calendar for Mac and set it to be on the iCloud. Otherwise, it would always be local to your device, i.e. under the Subscribed section but not "iCloud".

    If you use other services like or Google Calendar, you can subscribe the calendar in the web interface of the respective services (or Calendar for Mac) and they should appear in your calendar list afterwards.

    I just ended up putting the calendars on each device. A minor inconvenience but I cannot understand why they can't just sync between devices.
