Yahoo Calendar Now Syncs With Your iPhone

For iPhone users who prefer Yahoo over Google for handling their online data, the Yahoo Mail blog runs down how to sync Yahoo Calendar with your iPhone.

To get started, there’s no download necessary—just follow these simple steps on your iPhone and you’re ready to go. There’s no need to jailbreak your phone or do anything else that may be shady or complicated. Once you’re all set up, you can share calendars with other people, too.

The Mail blog points out some things you should know before you jump in:

Before you get started, there are just a couple of pre-requisites to set up your calendar to sync. First, you have to be running the latest iPhone software (3.0 or higher). Second, by syncing with your iPhone, we will switch you over to the all new Yahoo! Calendar 2.0 (Beta).

If you’ve tried out the Yahoo/iPhone syncing, let us know what you think of it in the comments. If you prefer Google Calendar, the folks at Google have been supporting contact and calendar sync to your mobile device since February.
