Caldav not working on iOS 11

Postby machroel » Wed Jan 03, 2018 9:53 am

Since I upgraded my iPhone to iOS11 caldav (calendar) is not visible anymore in the accounts. On all other devices like iPad which I didn't upgrade yet to iOS11 it still works fine. Anybody any idea?

I think the settings on the new OS have changed slighlty.

Add a caldav account
(translated from a German iPhone):

accounttype: advanced
username: yourusername
password: yourpassword
server address: https://yourdomain.synology.me
serverpath: /caldav/yourusername
port: 5001
SSL: enabled

I’m not using the Synology Calendar package but I am using caldav with an IOS calendar app (Awesome Calendar) for my phones and with Outlook on non-mobile platforms to sync up my calendar. I did not see any change in operation when upgrading to IOS 11. That port, 5001, are you sure that is correct? Also, at least for my own devices, I need to include a trailing “/” for the path name.
Eg, https://subdomain.domain.com:5006/Calendar/mycal/ I’m using a dyndns application instead of quickconnect which works very well.

Still no luck...tried several things, also with and without /... checked port number and so on. I really think it's an iOS11 problem. All my other devices (iPad & MBPro) are working fine. Thanks for the effort though!

Yes I found the solution (for me). Maybe it can help others:
My username - Synology account, had a blank space: Firstname Surname.
I deleted the blank space in my username.
In advanced settings of Accounts iOS11, I switched on SSL without inserting a port number. Account-URL: https://yoururl/caldav.php/

That did for me!

...cheered too fast...

Calendar appeared and synchronised totally, but unfortunately only once.

Finally....an upgrade to iOS 11.2.6 did the job for me! :D

Return to “Calendar”
