Connecting an iCloud Account

This section will walk you through connecting an Apple iCloud account to CalendarBridge. The iCloud setup is a different than Microsoft and Google as it uses an app password, rather than oAuth (“Login with Apple”).

Also it please note that iCloud does not support real-time syncing, so sync connections with an iCloud source calendar will sync every 5 to 10 minutes.

Prerequisite: Generate an application specific password from your iCloud account

To connect your iCloud account to CalendarBridge you do not use your normal iCloud password. Instead, you must login to iCloud and create an application specific password. Here is how to do that:

1. Sign into https://appleid.apple.com

2. In the Sign-In and Security section, select App-Specific Passwords.

icloud generate app specific password

3. Select “Generate an app-specific password.”
