Old Method – How Do I Search My iPhone 5 Calendar? (Guide with Pictures)
I like to use my calendar because it doesn’t force me to remember all of my upcoming plans, which can easily be forgotten.
But it also puts you in a kind of “set it and forget it” frame of mind, where you enter an event and then almost immediately forget about it.
So if you schedule a short out-of-town trip and someone asks you about it, it can be difficult to remember when it was scheduled.
But you can quickly find out by using the calendar search function.
Step 1: Launch the Calendar app.
Step 2: Select the List option at the bottom of the screen.
Step 3: Tap inside the Search All Calendars field at the top of the screen.
Note that your screen may say something different, depending upon the number of calendars that you are using.
Step 4: Type a word or phrase that is in the name of the event that you want to find, then tap the correct result to see additional information about the event.
Now that you know how to search the calendar on the iPhone 5, you will be able to use this method anytime that you want to find a calendar event, and don’t feel like manually scrolling through everything.
