How to restore iPhone or iPad calendar events into Outlook

After using iPhone Backup Extractor and retrieving your calendar events from your backup, you might wonder to restore these back to your iPhone, iPod or iPad.

The easiest way is to email the .ics (iCal) file containing your calendar to your iPhone or iPad, and then open and import using the Calendar app on the iOS device.

However, if you use a Microsoft email client like Outlook or Windows Live, the following article can help to import your calendars using these instead. We discuss two methods: importing iCal or CSV files, as extracted by iPhone Backup Extractor, and using iTunes to sync your device to Outlook directly.

Importing an iCal or CSV calendar to Outlook

  1. Open Outlook and under File, click Open > Import.

  2. If you're importing a CSV file, choose Import from another program or file > Comma Separated Values (Windows). For iCAL calendar files, click on Import an iCalendar (.ics) or vCalendar file (.vcs).

  3. Select the CSV or iCAL Calendar file created by iPhone Backup Extractor, and choose whether you want to allow duplicates to be created or not (you probably don't!).

  4. Select the folder where you’d like your Calendar data to go. You’ll probably want to put it in main Outlook Calendar.

Sync your iPhone or iPad with Outlook Calendar using iTunes

If you are going to use Outlook and iTunes on an ongoing basis, syncing your calendar directly can work well.

  1. Open iTunes and connect your iOS device.
  2. Under "Devices", click the "Info" tab

    Sync Calendar with iTunes

  3. Click on "Sync Outlook calendars" and then "Apply" lower-right corner of your screen.

This should cover the process of importing and syncing your calendar with your iPhone and Outlook successfully.

This is iPhone Backup Extractor, think of it as a "personal forensics" utility. It's pretty awesome.
