How to refresh the Calendar app
Your iPhone may have a pull or fetch setting based on how often it synchronises with an external calendar. To manually refresh the iOS Calendar app you can follow these steps:
Open the iPhone's Calendar app.
Press Calendars from the bottom of the screen.
Swipe down on the list to manually refresh the calendar list.
To view or update your Calendar app’s update frequency on iOS, go to Settings > Calendar > Accounts > Fetch New Data. Here you can set how often the calendar app should fetch new data, for example, Automatically, Hourly or Every 15 minutes.
