It's been a couple of months since Apple unleashed iOS 7 for its iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices, and after a couple of updates, it's fairly certain that the firm has taken a ‘like it or lump it' mentality.
One area where that's more apparent than most is the Calendar app. While Apple has certainly given it a new lick of paint to match the rest of iOS, there are quite a few oddities about the app which need explaining.
In iOS 6 it was fairly apparent as to where you could find the "list" view in the calendar app. Inexplicably, Apple has in effect hidden this feature behind the search function. To get the list view you know and love, simply tap the magnifying glass logo at the top right of the Calendar window, next to the + button for adding appointments.
To find specific events, simply tap in the search bar and type away.
Month events view
It may have been to make things less cluttered, but some people really liked seeing all of their events from the month view section of the calendar app. That's gone, and there's no way of getting it back. This is particularly unhelpful if you're like us and have events and appointments on pretty much every day of the week. However, the above method of viewing the list view is probably your closest way of getting it back. Or, try accessing week view - see below.
Week/five day view
There's no obvious week view option in the iOS 7 Calendar app on the iPhone, but it's simple to access. Turn the phone on its side (landscape mode) and you'll see multiple days and their corresponding events. It's not great on the iPhone's tiny 4in screen, however, so we'd recommend using the list view instead if you're on anything other than an iPad.
If you do for some reason want to access the week view on your iPhone, you'll need to make sure screen rotate is on: swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access the quick access options menu, then simply select the rotating padlock icon on the right.
That's it, a few of Apple's slightly-obscured-for-some-reason Calendar features.
