How do I get the startDate of an event that is already on my iPhone's calendar?

I am making an app for myself and I need to access the startDate and endDate of specific events that are already in my calendar. How can I go about doing this? I have tried storing a list of events into an array but once the events are in the array, what is the point, how can I access them?


You can save the eventIdentifier property of the EKEvents in the array.

EKEventStore *eventStore = [[EKEventStore alloc] init];
// Create the predicate from the event store's instance method

NSPredicate *predicate = [store predicateForEventsWithStartDate:oneDayAgo



// Fetch all events that match the predicate

NSArray *eventsArray = [store eventsMatchingPredicate:predicate];

for (EKEvent *eventToCheck in eventsArray) {
    if ([eventToCheck.eventIdentifier isEqualToString:[eventsIdentifierArray objectAtIndex:i]]) {
        //Do your changes here
        NSLog(@"%@", eventToCheck.startDate);
        NSLog(@"%@", eventToCheck.endDate);
