Are you tired of those pesky mail events popping up on your iPhone 14 calendar? You know, the ones that automatically get added when you receive flight confirmations, hotel bookings, or event tickets via email. Well, wave goodbye to unwanted clutter because I’ve got the solution for you! In just a few simple steps, you can stop mail events from appearing on your iPhone 14 calendar, keeping it clean and focused only on the events that matter to you.
Step by Step Tutorial to Stop Mail Events on iPhone 14
Before we dive into the how-to, let’s briefly touch on what we’re going to achieve here. By following these steps, you’ll prevent your iPhone from scanning your emails and automatically adding calendar events based on their content. Ready? Let’s go!
Step 1: Open the Settings App
Open the Settings app on your iPhone 14.
When you tap on the Settings icon (it looks like gears), you’ll be taken to a menu where you can adjust all kinds of features on your phone.
Step 2: Scroll and Tap ‘Mail’
Scroll down until you find the ‘Mail’ option and tap on it.
‘Mail’ settings control how your email operates. This is where the magic happens for stopping those unwanted calendar events.
Step 3: Select ‘Accounts’
In the ‘Mail’ settings, select ‘Accounts’ to manage your email accounts.
Here you will see a list of all the email accounts that are connected to your iPhone.
Step 4: Tap on the Email Account You Want to Adjust
Choose the email account from which you want to stop mail events from being added to your calendar.
Each account has its own settings, so you’ll need to repeat these steps for each account if you have more than one.
Step 5: Turn Off ‘Events Found in Mail’
Find the ‘Events Found in Mail’ option and toggle it off.
This little switch is what’s been adding all those events to your calendar without asking you first. Turning it off will put you back in control.
Once you complete these steps, your iPhone will no longer add events from your emails to your calendar automatically. You can now manually add the events that are important to you, leading to a more organized and efficient calendar experience.
