Apple tosses CalDAV support?

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:

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

  • 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:

Unfortunately, the exchange via CalDav no longer works. Is it planned to implement the functionality directly in GoodTask? The app is now unfortunately unusable for me in this form.

Hi @webdever, thanks for the feedback. I'm not aware of any changes at the moment. You can still add your account by 'Settings app - Reminders - Accounts (iOS)' & 'System Preferences - Internet Accounts'. Thanks!

adding the accounts still works without problems, but there is no synchronization via CalDav anymore. This applies to lists and tasks that are set on the Mac via Reminder and also vice versa for tasks and lists that I set in Nextcloud, or Synology.

Hi @webdever, thanks for the info. I'm not accessible at the accounts at the moment. You may give feedback to Apple for some help.


I've gotta say that this is pretty much nonsense. Apple has not dropped support for CalDAV. I sync my calendars from Fastmail every day. Now, I can't speak for what they might or might not be doing with iCloud, but you call out sources other than iCloud.
