  5. Once you’re done entering all the details, tap on Done located at the upper right corner of the screen.

  4. Beside the Sync Calendar, uncheck the box. A pop-up window will appear.
  5. Click Remove Calendars.
  6. On the lower right portion of the iTunes window, click Apply. This will remove all calendar events from your Calendar app.
