    There is a substantial problem with anyone who uses Google calendar and syncs that calendar with iOS devices via an Exchange account. I noticed it when the people that sync with my google calendar reported something was weird when they opened the events on their iPhone, iPad and iPod. It appears when you open the events that were created on the google calendar that they are now showing up as invites as opposed to events. The even bigger problem is that anyone who has permission in that calendar to make changes can no longer change the events since because they are invites they can not be edited. This has never been a problem when syncing google calendar with an iOS device. But since 6.0.1 rolled out it has become a huge problem. The events at least show up and until you tap to open them look like a normal event. But once you open it then you notice it is an invite and gives you the options to reply "accept" "maybe" "decline".

    I hope someone can put some pressure on Apple to fix this quickly when 6.1 releases becasue it is causing huge problems for a whole lot of people. There are a number of threads in Apple's community forum's started about it allready and all appear to be the same problem. Here is the link:

    https://discussions.apple.com/message/20193809#20193809

    I am sure this all has to do with people who are actually using MS Exchange server and were having issues with their invites. But when fixing that it appears they caused an issue with the way everyone else uses exchange which is to sync calendars from other accounts.

    Thanks

    I realized I had this issue the other day, I thought I messed something up when I updated my iPhone 5! My google calendar is not for work or anything, just personal stuff, so it is not too vital but it is annoying. I hope they get this fixed really soon, otherwise I might have to switch to using iCloud.

    I was wondering what was going on for awhile now. I just figured I had set things up incorrectly in Google. Really sucks when I want to try and edit an event. Thanks for starting this thread.

    Have you followed the instructions HERE? Also, go to Settings-Mail, Contact, Calendars and then scroll down to the Calendar menu and make sure the "sync" is set for you to view your events. Mine is set to sync "All Events".

    I am not seeing this issue. Maybe a setting like JustMe'D suggested. Though I have mine set up the same way as his.

    Which issue are the last two replies addressing? Just viewing events? Or an overall fix?

    Possibly, both. If the viewer has it set to only sync the last 3 months, he or she will be unable to view any events beyond that period of time.

    Try deleting that particular email account from your device, reboot your device, and then re-configure that account on your device. Your information should still be available because it is stored on Google's server.

    So it seems the problem does not occur when I'm using the main gmail calendar. However, all additional calendars show as calendar invites.

    Resetting or deleting does not work. I've reset my device a number of times for other reasons and the same thing is still going on with my google calendars.

    Definitely set to sync. That's the only way I've found to have all my calendars on the device. Without having that setup, only my main google calendar would be here. I have all three of my calendars that I regularly sync with.

    At least others are experiencing it too, and hopefully Apple starts to realize this is a major issue that needs to be resolved fast.

    I, too, am having the problem of events disappearing, reappearing in duplicate, and then disappearing. This is so frustrating when trying to make appointments and also trying to figure out if you have one coming up or not. BTW...I'm on 6.0.2, now.

    To "solve" my problem, I ended up setting up my gmail mail function as exchange and then set up the gmail calendar portion as the non-exchange option. Hooray for workarounds I guess. 😒

    Strange thing is, later in the day, all my appointments showed back up.
