Add Hijri Calendar to iPhone along with the default calendar

Add Hijri Calendar to iPhone along with the default calendar

To add Hijri Calendar to your iPhone, you don’t have to remove the default calendar. You can just add Hijri Calendar as a secondary calendar, which will appear right beneath the default date.

All you have to do is to follow the simple 4 steps below:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Tap “Calendar”
  3. Tap “Alternate Calendars”
  4. Select “Islamic”

That’s it 🙂

After setting the calendar, sometimes you might notice that it is one day back or ahead the exact hijri date. That means you have to change the region to your country (i.e: Maldives). That will solve the issue for you.

If you want to know how to do that, follow the steps below.

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Tap “Language & Region”
  3. Tap “Region”
  4. Select your country.
  5. That’s it.

If that doest help, currently there is no other way around to get it done. Then all you have to do is to keep in mind if you have to add or minus a day to the date shown in the calendar.
