The iPhone calendar app is considered the best in the smartphone industry due to it’s ease-of-use and the ability to sync your calendar with other apps especially social media, making us remember each and everything so we never have to face consequences of forgetting. Even if you have more than one account in use, you can always sync them as well.
Go to settings-> Mails, contacts, calendars -> Add account (here you’ll find various options such as Outlook, Yahoo, AOL, iCloud, Google), Choose and setup your account (username and password) and swipe right on all the options (mails, calendars, notes and contacts).

Add events from email

Create automatic alerts
Go to settings->Mail, Contacts, Calendars and scroll down and you’ll find an option of ‘Default alert times’. Choose the option you want for each type, such as for birthdays do you want alerts a day before, a week before or a few hours before.
