iOS 10 is loaded with a number of defining features such as the revamped Messages, redesigned Apple Music, versatile Notification Center, elegant Control Center and more. Having received accolades from beta testers, the latest iOS ecosystem is set to launch publicly next month (most probably).

iOS 10’s Calendar app has a new Events feature. It automatically scans Mail and Messages on your iPhone or iPad for events and allows you add them to your calendar. By default, this feature is turned on. Here is how it works!

How to Add Events Automatically to Your Calendar app in iOS 10

Step #1. When you receive a new message with a date, time, and/or place, you will see a popup asking you to add it. You need to add the event.

Step #2. Next, you will have to fill in some additional details if required.

Step #3. Once you are done, Tap on ‘Add’.

Note: As of now, the popup seems to show up on new messages only. If there is the old message, simply hold on the time/date in the message in order to add the event to the Calendar.

That’s all there is to it!

How to Prevent Events from Automatically Adding to Your Calendar in iOS 10

If you no longer want to add events automatically to your Calendar, there is an option to disable it. It will delete all the unconfirmed event suggestions.

Step #1. First up, launch Settings app on your iPhone/iPad.

Step #2. Next, you will have to scroll down and tap on Calendar.

Step #3. Scroll down again and turn off the switch next to Events Found in Apps.

That’s it!

Personally, I have thoroughly enjoyed using iOS 10 ever since it was announced on 13th June at WWDC 2016. Undoubtedly, Messages app has impressed me more than anything else.
