  • Daylight Savings Time Wreaks Havoc on iPhones... Again


    Daylight Savings Time has struck again. On Sunday, many iPhone users started complaining about their iDevice botching the time change. Rather than pushing the iPhone clock one-hour forward, a lot of iPhones went the other direction - that is, setting clocks back an hour instead. By Sunday morning there was a large but unknown number of iPhone users two hours behind schedule according to mobile device.

    Although this isn't the first time that a seasonal time change has befuddled the iPhone (on New Year's day there were alarm-related issues, just as there were at the end of daylight savings time last November), today was the first time the issue actually trended with some gusto on Twitter. On Sunday morning it seemed everyone was full of complaints about the unexplained two-hour mix-up.

    Of course, many iPhone owners have been through this situation before. And they're well aware of the easy fix. If your iPhone's clock was somehow mistakenly set back, simply shut down the device and then restart it. Switching the iPhone to “airplane mode” and then back will also do the trick.

      The reason for it is to give us more daylight hours during the winter, when the hours of daylight at less. I doubt an hour change every 6 months puts any "stress" on a body It would probably be more "stressful" on a body if it was night at 3 or 4pm for a few months

      iPhone users should move to Arizona for their clocks to work

      For those curious, here's a map of who and who doesn't use DST. Blue means DST is used, Orange means it's no longer used, and Red means it was never used.

      There are 4 iPhone users at my work. The 3G and 3Gs users had no problem.
      The 3G owner uses T-Mobile. The 2 iPhone 4 owners had problems.
      My phone wouldn't change its time. I had it to set automatically.
      I changed it manually, then it changed the time like I wanted it to, then put it back on to auto change time, and it went back to the old wrong time.
      I turned on the airplane mode and then turned it off, then it fixed the time.
      My co-worker with an iPhone 4 had his clock go backwards and hour to make his time off by 2 hours. Good thing the time change was on Sunday.

      So how much does Apple pay these software geniuses that can't get a simple clock to work right?

      Its okay though I'm sure Apple will kindly remind customers that they can change it themselves.

      On 4.2.1 and have no issues with this. Perhaps it might be related to your settings.

      I'm on 4.3 and had no issues. Wonder what fw they were on. If older than 4.2.1 you can't complain.

      Honestly my iTouch stopped making sounds with my notifications when dls came. I guess that's a good thing though since I hate sounds

      While I admit that the problem exists...

      SO MANY PEOPLE GET THIS WRONG!?!

      The correct terminology is "Daylight Saving Time" ...
      NOT "Daylight Savings Time"
      Look it up!

      Lol I never noticed. Thanks for pointing it out though. I am usually pretty educated about many things but this is one I admit that has slipped through my radar. Good catch

      Your point being? Am I the spelling police now? I wouldn't correct it if I didn't notice it now would I? Kindly refrain from creating an arguement or disagreement of some sort over something so miniscule, seeing as how I didn't provoke you to begin with.

      Apparently commenting on something is inappropriate for a moderator now without taking notice to every detail?

      Please just save us the trouble of disagreeing anymore simply because you feel like saying unnecessary things to people who haven't bothered you.

      The time on my i4 is correct but when my alarm goes off at 6am it's really 5am. Very frustrating!

      Same with me! I was on vacation with my family and my alarm went off an hour early! Apple needs to fix this problem NOW!
