I think you need outlook to do this ... if you have outlook, just connect your iphone and go the info tab in itunes and select outlook the be synced with your calendar.
but: if you are updating you don't really need this. every time you sync itunes makes a backup that includes your calendar.

That is correct! Just sync your calendars by selecting the option to do so in iTunes. Then set the phone up as new and sync the phone again

Hi, I have iPhone 4s running iOS 5.1 and am planning to upgrade to iOS 6.1.2. However, I wonder how to back up my iPhone calendars (I have two - business and personal - both on my iphone - i.e. not synced or backed up with the icloud). before i do the upgrade, i know that upgrading will wipe out my iphone.
I have the music in my iTunes library, but i cannot see my calendars loaded in iTunes - I must back my iphone calendars as they are extremely important to me. cheers.

If you use your itunes library often, your iphone calendars would have been backed up to your computer with the rest of your iphone data by itunes. Upon you upgrading your iphone, you can restore your iphone calendars via itunes. If you, on the other hand, have opted to back up your iphone data to the icloud, you can restore your iphone data directly within your iphone after the upgrade by going to choose "Restore from iCloud Backup" when in the Setup Assistant.
Alternatively, you can use standalone apps like the one below to back up straight away your iphone calendars in iCalendar format to your computer and then to restore them back to the device after its been upgraded:
Backup iPhone calendar, transfer iPhone calendar
Finally, you can sync your iPhone calendar with your Gmail account (Google Calendars) via CalDAV or Exchange - the trouble is that I am not sure whether your already existing appointments will transfer to your Gmail account, or it is only the new ones which will start syncing to Google.
