iCloud Calendar Not Updating/Syncing

There is currently an issue with iCloud sync between the server and the local iOS Calendar application. This problem occurs even when no user error has been made (Calendar is connected with iCloud, Calendar is checked ON in the iCloud system settings, etc.).

iOS Calendar Sync Failure

iOS Calendar Sync Failure

As shown in the screenshot to the left, clicking the Refresh Calendars button (Cmd-R) will make the “Updating…” text appear next to the heading, but the notice will not go away – no matter how long you’re in the program. Upon checking iCloud.com or any other synced iOS devices, none of your changes are made and are not published to the cloud.

Apple Support does not currently make note of any problems with iCloud or Calendar, and there are no support columns on this issue. This issue only effects Calendar on iOS X: Mountain Lion, and not the iCloud calendar on the iPod, iPhone, iPad or iCloud website.

If you have any information regarding the status of this sync failure, or if you are experiencing the same problem, please leave a comment with any tips or information and contact Apple.
