Setup CalDAV and CardDAV Synchronization for iOS

Realnames email accounts have the ability to synchronize calendars and contacts via CalDAV and CardDAV.

CalDAV synchronizes calendar data across different devices and is available through your RealNames email account. It utilizes Apple’s iCalendar format and is compatible with Android, Gmail, Mac OS X, iOS 5+, Outlook, and Thunderbird. All functionality, such as editing, RSVP, and invites, are available.

CardDAV synchronizes contact data across different devices and is also available through your RealNames email account. It is compatible with Android, Gmail, Mac OS X, iOS 5+, Outlook, Thunderbird, and other platforms. Similar to exporting/importing of vCards, this functionality synchronizes all your contact data including individual contacts and groups.
