How to connect your Apple/icloud calendar
1. Retrieve your app-specific password from Apple
Before you can connect your apple calendar to calendar.com you will need to retrieve an app specific password from Apple. This app-specific password will be different from your regular Apple password.
Apple requires an app-specific password, as well as two-factor authentication, to connect to third-party applications like Calendar
To retrieve your app-specific password:
Sign in to https://appleid.apple.com/.
Go to security and, turn on two-factor authentication if it is not already on.
Go App-Specific Passwords, select the icon to add a password.
Name and create the password. A good tip would be to name the password "Calendar.com Password" or something along those lines you can tell your different app passwords apart.
Copy the new app specific password given so you can use it when connecting it in Calendar.
In the Screenshots below, you can see where you can select app specific password and what an example of a what the app specific password will look like.
