How to quickly add events in Apple Calendar

I’ve begun to use the Apple apps on iOS again in the lead up to WWDC and thought I’d do a series of posts on hints and tips. These aren’t going to be a revelation if you’re a power user but I want to put some useful articles into the world for people to use.

The way that I add events now is to long press on the Calendar app icon and simply tap add event this will launch the Calendar app and already be at the add entry UI.
