So As of right now everyone has a public team Calendar that everyone can view from outlook no problem.

What i am trying to do is get it so you are able to view the public folders on a mobile device primarily Apple devices.
With the built in app i know we cant do it.

So i am wondering if there is a way of either finding a free app to do this or if theirs a way of re configuring are calendar so it can appear on the cellphones.

If there's a paid option that can be done from the server side awesome, but we cant have all users be forced to buy like a 3 dollar app to get this to work.

Is it too much trouble to just create a new user and copy the calendar to there, then you can add this calendar to all users in Outlook (by sharing it with the correct settings). For the mobile users, just add the  this new account, and sync only the calendar.

As far as I understand, public folders are not accessible with the native iOS mail app and not with the Outlook app either.

You can do it the way Kimputer stated.

There is another option I've seen work but have not impletemented personally.  Try using a shared mailbox, then you don't have another set of credentials to manage.
