Step 3: Select the Add CalDAV Account option from the list which is shown on the display of the device.

Note: If you just want to add a subscribed calendar that supports CalDAV, select Add Subscribed Calendar option. Add the link to .ics file where the calendar is hosted, followed by username and password (if required), and you are done adding a subscribed calendar to the stock Calendar app on your device.
