4.2. Add an iCloud Calendar to Spark

There are two ways to sync your iCloud calendar with the built-in calendar in Spark. They depend on the email address tied to your Apple ID.

The first method is for users with an Apple ID linked to their iCloud email.

If you created your Apple ID using an email from Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, or other providers, check the second method.

1. Users with an Apple ID linked to iCloud email

If you set up your Apple ID using an email address with the @icloud.com, @me.com or @mac.com domain name, add your account to Spark, and your calendar will be synced.

Launch Spark, tap  at the top left, go to Settings > Mail Accounts > Add Account and choose iCloud. Now, you need to enter an app-specific password; this is an Apple security requirement. Tap Generate an app-specific password.

You will be directed to the Apple ID webpage. Sign in, open the Security section and tap Generate Password. Enter the password label, e.g. “Spark” and tap Create.

   

Copy the password, return to Spark and tap I have an app-specific password. Enter your email and password, then tap Log in.

On the next screen, enter the name and title for your account, choose the notifications preferences and tap Done.

Now, your iCloud account has been added to Spark. Go to Settings > Calendar > Calendar Accounts and enable the toggle for your iCloud account.

If you want the iCloud calendar to be your default, go to Settings > Calendar > Default, and choose the needed one from the list.

2. Users with an Apple ID linked to Gmail, Outlook, or other emails

You may have created your Apple ID using an email address from Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, or other providers. In this case, you need to create an @icloud.com email address and use it to add your iCloud account to Spark. Don’t worry, your Apple ID will still be associated with your primary email.

To create an @icloud.com email on your iPhone, open Settings > [your name] > iCloud (or Settings > iCloud), turn on Mail and follow the onscreen instructions.

Now, when you sign in on the Apple ID webpage, you should see your new email address in the Account > Reachable At.

Launch Spark, tap  at the top left, go to Settings > Mail Accounts > Add Account and choose iCloud. Now, you need to enter an app-specific password; this is an Apple security requirement. Tap Generate an app-specific password.

You will be directed to the Apple ID webpage. Sign in, open the Security section and tap Generate Password. Enter the password label, e.g. “Spark”, and tap Create.

    


Copy the password, return to Spark and tap I have an app-specific password. Enter your email and password, then tap Log in.

On the next screen, enter the name and title for your account, choose the notifications preferences and tap Done.

Viola! Now, your iCloud account has been added to Spark. Go to Settings > Calendar > Calendar Accounts and enable the toggle for your iCloud account.

  

If you want the iCloud calendar to be your default, go to Settings > Calendar > Default, and choose the needed one from the list.
