When I call eventStore.RequestAccessAsync it's always returning true, even if the user hasn't granted access, so I need to check if "eventStore.DefaultCalendarForNewEvents" is different than null.
If I call eventStore.RequestAccess, the callback returns correctly.
var response = await eventStore.RequestAccessAsync(EKEntityType.Event);
bool granted = response.Item1;
if (granted && eventStore.DefaultCalendarForNewEvents != null)
EKEvent newEvent = EKEvent.FromStore(eventStore);
newEvent.StartDate = date.DateTimeToNSDate();
newEvent.EndDate = date.AddMinutes(30).DateTimeToNSDate();
newEvent.Title = title;
newEvent.Notes = description;
newEvent.Calendar = eventStore.DefaultCalendarForNewEvents;
eventStore.SaveEvent(newEvent, EKSpan.ThisEvent, out error);
if (error == null)
Setting to confirmed as I can reproduce this issue, but I wonder whether using the async method is necessary. Since the "non-async" version pops up an alert it seems it is necessarily asynchronous, which is reinforced by this note in the docs for using EventKit here:
In that section it says specifically: "Because it raises an alert view, the call is asynchronous, and will call a completion handler passed as an NSAction (or Lambda) to it..."
So my suggestion would be to just use the RequestAccess call rather than RequestAccessAsync.
In any case, I am attaching a test project based on our Calendars sample with the async call being used instead.
## Steps to reproduce:
1. Open the attached project and launch it to an iSO device or simulator.
2. Tap "Calendars" at the top of the list.
3. In the alert asking for permission click "Don't Allow"
Expected result: Alert will show up with message "Returned Value - False"
Actual result: Alert shows up with message "Returned Value - True"
I tested with XI version 220.127.116.11
So it would seem that this is not a regression as the bug reporter claims they hit this on version 8.10

The issue is that the generated async code is checking for an NSError (not just the `bool`) and, in this case, no error is returned. Thanks for the sample.
