Google Calendar is a great way to get organized, share your appointments, and remind your family or colleagues of important dates.
For your events registered on your Google calendar to appear on your iOS, in particular on the Apple Calendar application, you will then have to configure its synchronization via your Google account.
To help you through this process, we explain how to use Google Calendar on your iPhone.

In addition to presenting a colorful design, more attractive and more detailed than the classic version of Apple's calendar, Google Calendar works, among other things, with iCloud and Microsoft Exchange.
Apart from its user-friendliness, Google Calendar does not have the same access levels as the Apple version.
Indeed, some of its features are incompatible on iOS; you will not benefit from the sending of event notifications by e-mail, the creation of Google calendars or the reservation of meeting or conference rooms.
