What is iCal?

iCal, short for Internet Calendar, is a widely-used file format for storing and exchanging calendar information. It allows users to share and subscribe to calendars across various devices and platforms, facilitating seamless scheduling and event management. iCal files, typically ending with a .ics extension, contain data such as event descriptions, start and end times, locations, and recurrence rules.

  • **Centralized Scheduling:** Subscribing to iCal calendars allows users to view all their events and appointments in one central location, regardless of the source.
