It is easy to setup birthday alerts on iPhone and make sure that you never forget birthdays of important people in your life. You first need to tell your iPhone the birthday dates of your family members, friends, and relatives. This can be done using the Contacts app on iPhone, which allows you to add Birthdays and important dates in its Contact details section. Your iPhone can alert you on the day of the occasion, 1 day early, 2 days early or a week before the birthday.
This is for the iPhone

First, you must have notifications enabled for your Calendar app. To turn this on, visit:
