An ICS file is a calendar file saved in a universal calendar format used by several email and calendar programs, including Microsoft Outlook and Apple Calendar. It allows you to share calendar information on the web and over email.

For example, when you send a meeting request to others, they can share ICS files and import the meeting's details into their calendars.
