iPhone owners shouldn’t rely on Apple’s Calendar app right now. Apparently some holidays from Germany and other countries are missing. The problem will not exist for a long time, because an update is on the way.
iPhone: Apple forgets German holidays
If Apple has its way, we should go to work more often than usual in 2022. According to some user reports, Apple simply forgot to update some holidays for the New Year. Especially on regional holidays if the problem occurs in the calendar app. These are either missing entirely or only match the previous year (source: MacRumors).
Not only German iPhone owners are currently amazed at the sloppiness. Holidays are also missing in Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Australia and some other countries. The US is not affected, however. Missing holidays should also not equally for all iOS versions cause confusion. The German public holidays are not fully recorded in the new iOS 15.2.
It remains unclear why Apple didn’t respond to the problem much earlier. As early as the summer of 2021, there were first reports from astonished users as to why the holidays of the next year were not displayed correctly. But it is also certain that Apple likes to leave a little more time on public holidays. The standard “German Holidays” calendar for 2021 was only updated by Apple on December 29, 2020.

Missing holidays: Update is on the way
According to reports on the UK, Apple has been in the past few hours a first update distributed. If this is installed, then the holidays also appear again. It can therefore be assumed that a suitable fix will appear in Germany soon. A look at the bridging days 2022 is worthwhile even without an update.
