  • New Years Day Glitch Causing Do Not Disturb Sessions to Continue Past Schedule


    iOS 6 brought with it a new feature called Do Not Disturb that allows you to keep all notifications from notifying you as long as the feature is enabled. You can enable the feature manually whenever you donít feel like being disturbed, or you can set scheduled sessions, such as when youíre in bed and donít want to be woken up.

    For anyone that has set up the scheduled Do Not Disturb feature, you may notice that the feature isnít behaving correctly this New Years holiday. The scheduled Do Not Disturb feature is continuing far beyond the "To" time that users have set in the Do Not Disturb preferences pane.

    Anyone who may not have noticed that Do Not Disturb was still on beyond the "To" time would have continued through their day thinking that they have received no notifications today, only to find when they press the power button to wake up the device that their lock screen has many notifications stacked above one another.

    Last year, New Years day had spelled trouble for users trying to take advantage of the alarm feature built into iOS. The alarm would have failed to sound at the time that the user set and this would have caused users to wake up much later than originally expected, making them late for work and other planned events.

    The problem with Do Not Disturb is definitely annoying and leaving many scratching their heads as to why Apple canít seem to get their clocks to work right every new year.

      Ack. Same here. I hope someone finds a way to fix the DND staying on. It's a new day and it doesn't adhere to the schedule and just stays on.
      Edit: Nevermind. I just looked at my phone again and DND is off. Weird. Time to test some new times to see if it happens again.
      Edit: Okay, it seems if you manually turn DND off it shows "Scheduled : time" but when that time comes it doesn't do anything.
      Edit: When I did a hard reset and went to the Scheduled DND page it changed the times to 10:00PM -> 7:00AM. I wonder if that has anything to do with it.

      The problem won't go away until January 7th. Apple released an official statement.
