@raucao calendars and contacts are such a mess.
even with using DavDroid.
@tootbrute Yes. But mostly because Google and Microsoft don't want native support for CalDAV and CardDAV. Apple merely offers great clients that can operate on these open standards by design.
Things gets harder when you want to sync contacts although... You cannot simply add a CardDav (am I right about contacts sync standard?) sync on iPhone 😑
@raucao Is that actually CalDAV?
@mjjzf CalDAV is for sync. The calendar file format is iCalendar (.ics). And yes, that's a link to an iCal file.
@raucao For subscription, right. I would have thought that would be a selling point! They have been a bit quiet on that. But I guess you do not want to send the eyeballs elsewhere...
@mjjzf Actually, also no. For merely subscribing to a calendar, you can just use a URL to any .ics file that is hosted on the Web. CalDAV is for syncing your own (or shared) calendars across devices/clients.
@raucao Calling it Apple Calendar is probably easier to understand for non-techies. They could perhaps have written "iCal (Apple Calendar)" instead.
@thor There's no need to put the word Apple in there at all. iCal is a widely supported standard.
