Daylight Savings Time Bug Discovered in Apple's iOS 7
Several iOS device owners running the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system woke up to a display error in iOS 7’s calendar app caused by the switch to daylight savings time. According to the folks over at AppleInsider
, users are reporting the line indicating the current time as being displaced by one hour in the calendar app. For example, at 9:00am, the calendar app draws the “current time” line in the slot as being 10:00am, despite displaying the correct time beside the line and in the system notification bar.
The bug reportedly doesn’t affect scheduled alarms or calendar events, the times for which are adjusted properly. Overall though, Apple seems to have recurring issues with time zone support. In 2010, iOS 4 had a bug that didn’t properly shift alarm schedules when Daylight Savings Time ended, causing some European iPhone owners to miss appointments or wake up late for work while Australians were woken up extra early. In 2011, another iOS 4 bug caused non-recurring alarms to be disabled when clocks ticked over to January 1, 2011.
Apple eventually ended up fixing both issues and is likely to fix this one in the near future as well.
Have any of you been affected by the said bug?
