Method 2: Restore Calendar Events from iTunes backup
If your preferred method of backing up your iPhone is via iTunes on Windows, or Finder on Mac, and you have a backup file that includes your Calendar events, you could carry out a full device restore through iTunes. However, this will overwrite any data on your device created since your last backup. If you do not want to experience any further data loss, then you can also use Enigma Recovery to retrieve your data.
Step 1 – Get Enigma Recovery
Download the Enigma Recovery software from this website. Once you have installed and opened the software, continue to the next step.
Step 2 – Choose ‘Recover from my iTunes’
From the tab menu on the left, select ‘Recover from my iTunes’. The computer will then display the Finder and iTunes backup files that have been found on your laptop or computer.

Select the backup file that you would like to scan for deleted calendar entries. Choose the file that is most likely to contain the lost data you are looking for. Use the date column to help you.

Method 3: Restore Deleted Calendar Events from iCloud
If you sync your iPhone calendars with iCloud regularly then you will likely be able to restore your events directly from iCloud to your device. However, there are some potential downsides to this method, including that it will overwrite your existing Calendar and Reminders app, cancel all your upcoming, scheduled events, and resend event invitations for you. It will also remove any of your sharing settings, so you will need to set these up again once you have completed the restore process. Keep reading to find out how to restore your Calendar events from iCloud.com. If you have an iCloud backup file but do not want to reset all of your settings or have event invitations resent, then skip to the next method, which will guide you to recover Calendar events using Enigma Recovery software instead. .
Step 1 – Sign in to iCloud.com
Sign in to your iCloud.com account and navigate to your Calendar app.
Step 2 – Look at Sharing Settings
Look through your Calendars that have been synced with iCloud and make a note of any sharing settings for each one – you will need this later if you want to share your calendars again.
Step 3 – Click ‘Settings’
Click ‘Settings’, scroll down and click ‘Restore Calendars and Reminders’ – this should be in the ‘Advanced’ section.
Step 4 – Select a version to restore
You will be shown available versions by the date and time they were archived. Select the Calendar version you need and click ‘Restore’. You may be asked to confirm again.
Step 5 – Complete Calendar Restore
Wait whilst iCloud restores the calendar events to your device. You will get a confirmation in iCloud.com and to the email address associated with your account once the restore is complete.

Method 4: Restore Calendar Events from iCloud backup
If you have looked at the first method of recovery but you do not want to reset all your Calendar settings and events, then this option may be better for you. You will still need your iCloud backup file, created before you deleted the events that you are trying to recover, as well as Enigma Recovery software, which will enable you to access your iCloud backup and select specific calendar events to extract. Once you have extracted the Calendar data you need, you can export it to your PC or Mac, or restore it to your device, without overwriting any data.

Step 2 – Log in to iCloud
To start the recovery, log into your iCloud account. The software will offer you two-factor authentication before entering your iCloud account. This is the most secure login available for iPhone data recovery. Your log in details will also remain safe as the software will not save or retain them.
Step 3 – Select an iCloud backup
You may now choose which iCloud backup to recover from. Use the date each backup was made to help you decide. Choose a backup file that was created before the calendar entries were deleted.
Step 4 – Select data type
