I synchronize Contact and Calendar from iPhone SE (6s) to Outlook 2016 using iTunes. You can use iCloud but it wants to kick in monthly fees for a small amount of space. I use iTunes as it handles Outlook and all my apps.

You need to turn off Contacts in the iCloud contacts backup and then connect iPhone and set up Info to sync Contacts and Calendars. Works well.

Also if you really would rather use iCloud, open Apple Software Update and iCloud is an option you can download and install

NEW Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 1.5

OK .. so the whole process is straightforward.
Install iCloud for Windows as outlined here by Apple
https://support.apple.com/en-ie/HT201391

Once installed open the iCloud Control Panel ..there are multiple checkboxes available that let you choose to sync
Email, contacts, and calendar items with Outlook,
Browser bookmarks
iCloud Photos
iCloud Drive

Below the checkboxes is a display indicating how much iCloud storage space you're using along with a button to manage it.

At the very bottom is a checkbox to add the iCloud tool to the Systray at the bottom right of Windows for easier access.

Checking the Mail, Contacts, or Calendars & Tasks checkboxes adds iCloud as an additional account in Outlook.  

If you have no intention of syncing bookmarks, photos or files you can leave these UNCHECKED on the Windows 10 device

If your objective is to synchronize contacts and calendar in MS Outlook, iCloud panel for Windows will not work as it will only create one folder in both Contacts and Calendar of MS Outlook and copy all local contacts and calendar items to iCloud.

It is only one way sync and you need to manually put the update to the iCloud after the initial sync.

That's right. If you want to really sync Outlook with iCloud, you have to use a 3rd party addin like our freeware CodeTwo Sync for iCloud: http://www.codetwo.com/sync-for-icloud/?sts=6375

I apologize for the delay. The question is not abandoned! I am still working on it and I still didn't resolved the Issue. I have the same configuration on my PC and without adding third party is working like a charm, but in the client computer it is not. In the client computer outlook has two profile configured. Pop and imap . They are both using the same email. On the pop profile after I installed iCloud for windows I can see appearing the extra tab "iCloud " and I can also see the contacts but I can not use them. On the imap profile the iCloud tab doesn't show and neither the the contacts. Any idea why. Does iCloud is so picky that works only with one configuration "pop" rather than imap ?

Yes, it only works with .PST outlook profile only.

ItaliabellaAuthor Commented:
Jackie I am confused now. Which one of the two profile use pst? The email account setup with imap or the email account  setup with pop ?

Thank you

In short, if your email account is imap (.OST), iCloud will NOT work.

It works with POP3

ItaliabellaAuthor Commented:
Ok so that is the answer. In fact with the imap it does not show. But it shows with the pop.

One more question in my computer I have setup it up using Microsoft office 365 for business. I believe that in my case  office 365 for businesses uses exchange. In this case exchange uses ost or pst ?

Because mine works great !!

Jackie ManCommented:
There are three options for Office 365 - POP, IMAP or Exchange. By default, Exchange setting will be used and you need to manually setup an additional POP account.

Only POP uses .PST.

Ok, sorry for the delay. I was able to fix the problem and this is how I did it. I deleted the existing pop account and reconfigured outlook only with an IMAP account. It works like a charm. Thank you everyone for all your valuable inputs

Thanks for the update. If IMAP is working for you, you are all set.
