How to prevent calendar events from disappearing after a while

By default, the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch only display the last month’s calendar events if you use iCloud sync. The reason Apple sets this default setting is to reduce the data consumption generated by the sync service and is not usually a problem, since most people do not recheck their past appointments except in very specific situations.

But what if we need to keep the events in sync for longer and they have disappeared from our calendar? Well, that’s not a problem, since the Calendar app has a setting to set the synchronization limit .

As usual, changing this setting is very simple and will only take a few seconds:

1.- Open the app Settings and access the Calendar .

2.- Among the options of the Calendar app we look for Events Sync .

3.- Once inside this section we see that we can establish the synchronization time between the following options: two weeks, one month, three months, six months or all.

Once we have chosen the synchronisation time we want, our iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch will synchronise the events with iCloud and we can consult them from the device itself .

As you can see this is a very simple adjustment and solves an issue that for some people can be a major problem. In addition, unless we make regular use of attachments in calendar events, the impact on data consumption will be minimal.

We also want to mention that this behavior does not occur on other devices. In the case of Macs we will always have all the events accessible and, in addition, we can also see them through the web version of the iCloud calendar from icloud.com.
