How to Sync an Outlook Calendar with iCloud
Apple provides a number of services under its brand iCloud and you have likely used at least one of these services if you have ever used an Apple device. All of these services that Apple provides are cloud based and hence the name iCloud. What that means is that if you make a change on one of your devices, it will automatically reflect on all other devices as everything is in sync with iCloud.
One of the useful tools that iCloud provides is a cloud based calendar that you can use to keep track of your schedule. If you’ve been using the Outlook calendar all this time, it’s time that you switch to this cloud based calendar by iCloud.
However, that doesn’t mean you must use the iCloud calendar to be able to sync your Outlook calendar all across your devices. You also have the option to sync your Outlook calendar with iCloud and thus you can make your Outlook calendar available on all of your iCloud enabled devices.
