Each is currently synced effectively with my iCal app. So the breakdown looks like this:

Google Calendar <==> iCal (on MacBook)
iCal (MacBook) <==> iCloud Calendar
iCloud < ≠ > Google

How should I edit my settings to enable entries made in Google Calendar and iCloud Calendar appear in each other?

Answer according to Google depends upon the version of ical you are running:


Versions 3.x-4.x

To set up CalDAV support for Google Calendar in Apple's iCal, follow these steps:

Open Apple iCal, go to Preferences and then the Accounts tab. Click on the + button to add an account. In the box that pops up, enter a description for the account and your Google Account username and password. Under Server Options, add the following URL:


Replace 'YOUREMAIL@DOMAIN.COM' with the email address that you use to log in to Calendar. Make sure to include the '@domain.com' portion (which is @gmail.com for Gmail users) in this section. DO NOT substitute your username for 'user' at the end of the URL. Leave the Use Kerberos v5 for authentication option unchecked. Click Add. Under the Delegation tab, select the calendars you'd like to add to iCal by checking the boxes next to them. You may need to hit refresh to get the latest list of calendars. Add your email address to your Address Book card by selecting Add Email. You'll be prompted to add your email address only if your address is not already in your Address Book.

Versions 5.x and up

Open Apple iCal In the toolbar, click Calendar, then Preferences Click the Accounts tab In the accounts pane on the left, click the + button to add an account Enter the following information: Account Type: Google Email Address: Enter the email address that you use to log in to Calendar. Make sure to include the '@domain.com' portion (which is @gmail.com for Gmail users) in this section. Password: Enter the password for the email address you listed above.


I understand, I also had this problem when I first bought an iPhone, but I've been using it for a very long time and have figured it all out so much that I can't use other phones. However, if you run into this problem, you may get different errors. https://backlightblog.com/icloud-storage-full go here to see how to fix it.
