Add to iCalendar

Used primarily for Apple users, the iCalendar is a file that can be downloaded and added to a user's Apple Calendar (also known as "iCal"). It is also used and supported by additional Calendar software, including Google Calendar, Yahoo! Calendar, and Thunderbird. Outlook also partially supports iCal files (depending on the version you are using).

In the pop-up window, choose the option "iCalendar (iCal)".
