Built-in iOS Solutions

iCloud Backup

iCloud Backup is a well-known and pre-installed feature on iPhones for backing up device data, including calendar events. By using this feature, you can securely store your Google Calendar data in Apple's cloud servers. Follow these steps to enable iCloud Backup for your Google Calendar data:

  1. Navigate to Settings on your iPhone.
  2. Tap your Apple ID at the top.
  3. Select iCloud.
  4. Scroll down and ensure the Calendars toggle is enabled.
  5. Scroll further down and tap on iCloud Backup.
  6. Make sure that the iCloud Backup toggle is enabled.

This will ensure that your Google Calendar data is included in your regular iCloud Backups, keeping your calendar events secure.

iTunes/Finder Backup

For users who prefer offline backups, iTunes (for Windows or macOS Mojave and earlier) or Finder (for macOS Catalina and later) can be utilized to make a complete backup of your iPhone. This backup would include your Google Calendar events as well:

  1. Connect your iPhone to your computer using a USB cable.
  2. Open iTunes or Finder depending on your operating system.
  3. Select your connected iPhone from the devices list.
  4. In the backup section, choose "Back up all the data on your iPhone to this computer." (phrasing may vary slightly).
  5. Click "Back Up Now" or "Sync" (depending on the application and version).

This method creates a full backup of your iPhone, including your Google Calendar events. Keep in mind, though, that while it creates a more comprehensive backup, restoring from this method will restore the entire iPhone, not just the calendars.
