How do I retrieve my information stored in iCloud, such as my calendar events which I just inadvertently deleted from my iPhone?

Calendars is a really useful Apple built-in app, especially for busy or forgetful users. Many users are accustomed to planning their life, so they often create calendars to keep track of some important events such as work plan, the schedule of travel and the agenda of the meeting.

Thus, a sudden deletion of calendar events can leave users at a loss. Concerning this issue, Apple introduced iCloud storage to store and back up your iPhone.
