The Apple Calendar app with iOS 14: Rita’s iDevice Advice for October 5, 2020
The Calendar app native to the iPhone is quite functional.
I have found that it is useful to use SIRI to schedule appointments in my Apple Calendar app.
You need to invoke Siri by saying “Hey Siri” and then quickly say something such as “schedule an appointment on my calendar for a particular date and time, plus say the word “Title” and say what the event is going to be.
When you want to schedule a Calendar Event, you can use SIRI.
Just say, Hey Siri, schedule appointment for Monday at 8 AM, titled, “order cat food”.
You can share a particular calendar with another person thus you could check your calendar and get notifications as well.
You can set up to 2 alerts, which is useful, such as: a day before and then 30 minutes before.
This is native to the iPhone and you can link your gmail calendar as well.

Voiceover Calendar Changes with iOS 14:
In the Apple Calendar app, when creating a new event, you will notice that the way you select start and end dates with Voiceover has been redesigned. Instead of just one picker, which must be swiped through, potentially taking a long time for you to find the date you want, you can now use a picker to select the month, then swipe right to see and hear all the days of the selected month by date. Simply double-tap on the date you want. You can even double-tap on the month picker to reveal a year picker, which makes it possible to quickly change the year of your start and end dates
In both the Calendar and Clock apps, when creating events or setting alarms, you can now simply enter times in the time edit field. Simply enter the time as a three or four digit number, with the hour first, followed by a two-digit minute. Enter this with no punctuation. Don’t worry about deleting what’s there, or anything else. It could not be simpler. For example, if you want an alarm for 7:30, just enter 730 into the edit field as soon as you double-tap on it. Want 9:00? enter 900. Eleven o’clock would be 1100.
After you enter the desired time, swipe right to select either AM or PM.
