After using our iPhone Backup Extractor software 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 simply email the .ics (iCal) file containing your calendar to your iDevice, then open and import using the calendar event manager on the iDevice. But if you use a Microsoft email client like Outlook or Windows Live, the following article can help to import your calendars using these instead.

Sync your iPhone, iPod or iPad with Outlook Calendar using iTunes

There are many ways of importing the Calendars files extracted with our iPhone Backup Extractor software. If you are going to use Outlook then syncing your Calendar after is a good option.

  1. Open up iTunes and connect your iDevice

  2. Under Devices, click the Info tab

  3. Sync Calendar with iTunes

  4. 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. If you have restored your Calendar to your iPhone using other techniques like Gmail via .CSV etc. then please share them by commenting below.
