Add and Delete Calendars on the iPhone with iOS 7

The iPhone makes it possible to independently maintain several different calendars for separate event categories, such as work or home. Calendars can easily be added or deleted to accommodate individual needs and help stay organized each day, week or month. Every time a new event or appointment is added to the calendar, iOS 7 will provide the option to assign this event to a particular calendar.

Note that all events associated with the calendar will also be deleted. This means if you have any important events tagged with this calendar, they will be removed if the calendar is deleted.

Tapping the Delete Calendar button will remove all traces of the calendar and its associated events from your device.
