Facebook Events not syncing to Calendar app in iOS

I think this bug has been around forever in iOS but, to be clear, my solution is for iOS 10.2.1 on an iPhone 7 Plus.

First, verify that the Calendar app has access to your Facebook information:

  1. Open Settings > Facebook
  2. Make sure you’re logged in
  3. Make sure the switch next to “Calendars” is switched on.

Here’s the buggy part, you need to make sure you sync All Events:

  1. Open Settings > Calendar
  2. Tap on the “Sync” entry and change it to “All Events
  3. Open the Calendar app and verify that the Facebook events are now showing.

An annoying bug on Apple’s part.
