Q: Hi, I am so lost without my Calendar on my iPhone since last night. I was updating one new appointment and was having trouble completing my entry and then found that it disappeared after I completed it. Then the dots on my monthly calendar started blinking on and off and then came the final disappearance of my calendar events and appointments. I want to restore from my iTunes backup but I can’t sure whether it contains all my calendar events. Can you please help me as soon as possible?
