fixed : weeks not starting on Mondays in iOS 11 Calendar

Question :

I just upgraded to iOS 11 and I’m very happy with this new version of iOS, but when I opened the Calendar app and went into Month-view I noticed that all weeks now start on Sundays, which I find very confusing.

I can remember that I was able to choose on what weekday my weeks should start, but I have set that long ago in some previous version of iOS to never be bothered with it again.

But now it’s been reset to the (American ?) weeks starting ons Sundays, which is very annoying as we (Europeans) tend to start new weeks on Mondays…

…where has the option to customize this gone ?

 

Answer :

This is very simple to fix, you just need to know where to find it :

  • open the Settings app on your iOS 11 iPhone or iPad
  • then goto Calendar
  • then on the next page you can adjust the settings of your Calendar, and adjust it according to your preference
  • then click on “Start Week On” and choose “Monday” from the list

That’s it 😉

enjoy !
