No need for tethering to a PC with a USB, as calendar updates in iOS will help you to become PC-free.
Calendar improvements with iCloud connectivity will add calendars straight to you iPhone and iPad.

Updates in the iOS 5 will let you add, delete and rename calendars directly from your device. In an article over on AppleInsider, it is reported that the current iOS 5 betas available to developers have the functions to add calendars and are initially in place on the iPad.

Although the iPhone does not seem to have been included with the options to form a calendar in the
first build, new features are available in the first beta of iOS 5 for iPhone users, especially the new landscape function that shows a week split into parts automatically.

With many new great features, the one that stands out is the calendar default alert times, this will help you set a reminder alarm for every individual occasion you create, so there is no need to change each alarm setting every time. You can change your alarm setting to coincide with particular events like appointments and special occasions.

On the iPad, a yearly view lets you monitor your calendar with color codes. The colors are organized for busy schedules, white days are free times, more eventful days will be orange and yellow and red is for the congested times. Just by tapping you can adjust and edit events, you can also drag to change time and date.

An option to share calendars with others and sync across a number of devices is available with the iCloud connectivity. These functions are an ideal way to break free from being tied to a PC. For more information, visit AppleInsider.
