I prefer the list view as well. Looks like the easy solution is to simply tap on the search icon and list view is there.

I think you're a tad confused here @rameeti on two things.
even in iOS6 Siri would have named the calendar event "appointment" had you said that same phrase: "Make an appointment .." That hasn't changed. You should have said: "Schedule haircut with Margaret tomorrow 10am" then Siri would have named the event "Haircut" and invited Margaret by email to just ONE appointment.
you're confusing Calendar Events with Reminders. Reminders don't send email invites to anyone... only calendar appointments do. So the boss in your example would not get in trouble if he said: "Remind me to fire Ted on Friday"... Siri would create a reminder for 9am Friday, but Ted would not get any emails.

I also hate the "hierarchical" approach to the calendar --- too much swiping and tapping. Do I really care about accessing the calendar for 2018? Nope. And Apple has completely ignored its own operations; the double-finger expand and reduce functions don't work here.
Apple has a history of intelligent, user-focused design, consistently adhering to the core principle that things should be obvious, easy and informative. But this iteration of the calendar is cute and artsy, and completely dysfunctional. Steve Jobs would never have let this leave the shop.

my husband works shifts and preffered to view in a list so can clearly see what the next day looks like compared with the current without all the pressing days etc. quite cleary see by coloured dots at side who it was for too. how can I revert to older version ios6.?? Hi Kate, for most people that don't have a lot of events in their calendar, the new version from Apple doesn't work very well. I'm the co-founder of another calendar app, called Sunrise. You can find it on the AppStore, the list view works well there.
