    Afaik, you can't. When you add a new event, the default duration is always one hour.

    That's not what the OP is wanting... they want the default duration of new events to be 30 minutes... nothing to do with alert times...

    Edit to add... other calendar Apps in the AppStore may have the option... one that does is Calendars 5

    This worked for me - Open terminal and write the below - replacing X with the number in minutes you want it to default to:

    defaults write com.apple.iCal 'Default duration in minutes for new event' X

    Sweet! The Terminal approach worked for me on my desktop (OS X). Now I just need to figure it out for iOS
