This error has been reported to last for months but I’m going to put an end to it. These steps are going to work regardless of which iOS device you have.

Why does this error message keep Popping up?

The reason you’re getting the ‘your response to the invitation cannot be sent’ notification is because you’ve sent a response (accepted or rejected) to a calendar invitation and because of an error, the response cannot be sent, therefore you’ll keep receiving the notification.

There could also be an issue between your email account and the calendar app. Down below are the steps you need to take.

How to Fix ‘Calendar Invitation your Response to the Invitation Cannot be Sent’

Response to the invitation couldn't be sent

Turn Calendar Accounts off/on

If you recently responded to a calendar event, this step should fix your problem. The first thing you need to do is to turn any calendar accounts off then on.

This is going to refresh the calendar app which may stop the message from popping up.

  1. Go to settings
  2. Click on Accounts & Passwords
  3. Click on your mail (If you didn’t see Calendar here, click on iCloud)
  4. Toggle Calendar off, you’ll see a message ‘turning off calendar’
  5. Turn it on
  6. Restart your device

Once you’ve done this, you can check if the calendar invitation message continues to pop up. This step should have worked but if it doesn’t, go to the next step.

Delete the Calendar app then Reinstall

The next thing you need to do is to delete the calendar app and reinstall it again. Although the Calendar is a pre-installed app, you can still delete its cache files.

When you delete it, the app is still going to remain there, however, it’s going to remove from the home screen and delete the apps files.

After you’ve deleted it, you need to swipe left and search for the calendar app again. From here on, you’ll be able to reinstall the app.

After you done this, you need to wait for a while to see if the ‘your response to the invitation cannot be sent’ message pops up. You should notice that you don’t see the message anymore.

Turn your iOS Device off/on

Since your the problem is occurring on your iOS device, this may be the root of the problem.

There could be a bug on your device that’s stopping your response to the calendar invitation not to be sent.

The second solution to take if the first one didn’t work is to restart your iPhone or iPad.

Restarting your iOS device gives it a fresh start and this can get rid of bugs and glitches that are causing problems.

To restart your device, go to settings > click on general > tap shut down.

Restart your device
