Adding my.wbs calendar feeds to iOS devices (iPad/iPhone)

Adding an ICS calendar to your iOS device - such as an iPad or iPhone - is not done through the Calendar app. The settings to subscribe to ICS calendars are actually located in the Passwords & Accounts section of your device's Settings menu. You need the ICS calendar's full URL - which is an ICS file - to add it to the Calendar app (see Stage 1: Getting a copy of your calendar feed above and use your device's browser to navigate to myWBS - NB long press on the iCal feed icon to get the Copy option). After you subscribe to the calendar, it appears under "Subscribed" in the Calendars section of the Calendar app.

Step 1: Tap the "Settings" app on your iOS device's Home screen.
Step 2: Select "Passwords & Accounts" then tap "Add Account" in the Accounts section
Step 3: Tap "Other," then tap "Add Subscribed Calendar"
Step 4: Paste the ICS calendar's address from Stage 1 above in the "Server" field
Step 5: Tap "Next," then enter a name for the calendar in the Description field, e.g. myWBS
Step 6: Tap "Save" to add the calendar to the Calendar app.
