How to Remove LinkedIn contact birthdays from your iPhone Calendar

Contacts of LinkedIn, I love you all. honestly I do – but there are a lot of you.

When I added the LinkedIn app to my iPhone it “helpfully” populated by iPhone calendar with everyone’s birthday – which is kind of a problem when you’re challenged for screen estate on the iPhone, and frankly as much as I would love to send you all a card and gift it’s not going to happen, so it’s a bit annoying.

You can remove these by tapping on Calendars at the bottom of the Calendar display.

Then scroll down past you usual calendar settings, look for “other” and uncheck Birthdays.

And presto, they’re gone.

    This is a terrible solution. By doing this, it ALSO deletes all of your personal contact birthdays from your calendar. The problem isn’t that we have a few birthdays on our calendars, it’s that we’re inundated with LinkedIN birthdays that frankly we don’t really care about that much. There should be a way to keep my grandmother’s birthday on my calendar while getting rid of my 4th degree of separation friend of a friend of a friend of a friend’s colleague’s birthday. Get it?

      it didn’t delete my personal contacts, it only removes birthdays that come from LinkedIn?
