Apple tosses CalDAV support?

#1

Makes interesting reading. I don't claim to know what's true or not. I haven't and won't be installing Catalina and so far I've deleted the iOS 13 update every time it's shown up on my phone.

I did hack up an applescript that would pull Reminders out and insert them into Todoist (my alternative to GoodTask). It is here: https://github.com/posguy99/AppleScript/tree/master/Todoist

You don't need to worry so much about it. It's rather simple. Reminders can connect to CalDAV just like before.

It's just about iCloud database that's used in iOS 13 and macOS Catalina which changes.

It's like this..

  • iCloud database : Doesn't support CalDAV. You can reach data in iOS 13 and macOS Catalina devices and www.iCloud.com

  • Previous iCloud database : Supports CalDAV like before. If you didn't upgrade, you can access it on any devices. If you upgraded, it won't be visible on iOS 13 and macOS Catalina Reminders app.

  • Other Exchange / CalDAV databases : Works like before.

If you rely on other CalDAV servers, nothing changes. :slight_smile:
