How to Delete an Event on the iPhone Calendar

You can edit your calendar and events on your computer or on your iPhone. If you need to delete an event or calendar entry on the iPhone it can be a little tricky since, Apple has hidden the option off screen. Once you know how to do this, you’ll be set.
