Convert Local to Synchronized Calendar

  1. Go to device Settings
  2. Go to Calendar (or Mail, Contacts, Calendars in iOS9 and below)

This ensures all future events added through Siri or other calendar apps that sync with your phone will automatically be added to this account.

  2. Select Export
  3. Select Date Range to Export (this is limited by iOS to 1 year max)
  4. Select Type and mark ICS File
  5. Press Export
  6. Select Send by E-mail and mail file to an e-mail account available on your PC or Mac so you'll have a backup

Step 3

Open the email you just sent and click on ics file. You'll get a question in which calendar you would like to import these events.

Final Step

After you verified all events are synchronized correctly you now may want to delete your local calendar.
