Connect to your WWU email and calendar from an iPhone or iPad using the iOS Mail & Calendar app

You can configure the native iOS Mail and Calendar apps to connect to your Office 365 email, calendar, and address list. However we recommend the Outlook app for its better support of Office 365 mailbox and calendar features, including the ability to perform faster and more thorough searches of your mailbox.
