Apple: Do Not Disturb Will Fix Itself January 7th
New Years day of 2013, Do Not Disturb fell short of users' expectations when the setting malfunctioned and failed to disable itself at the scheduled time for many iOS 6 users, causing many not to get their notifications.
The problem stems from an issue with Apple’s calendar and clock. Just last year, something similar happened with alarm clocks failing to go off at the necessary time starting New Years day. It was devastating for people relying on the alarm to wake up on time for work or special events.
Apple has come forward Wednesday afternoon with an official statement regarding the matter, promising all iOS 6 users that Do Not Disturb will resume its usual actions on January 7th, 2013. On this date, scheduled Do Not Disturb sessions will behave as expected and will no longer continue past schedule.
For the days to come, Apple recommends that users enable and disable Do Not Disturb manually until January 7th by using the switch in the Settings application, to control when they do and do not get alerted by iOS’ notifications.
Hopefully in future iOS updates, Apple will actually fix the problem before it happens instead of letting time heal the wounds of those affected by the bug.

Seems like it could be a quick fix. I don't know why they just wouldn't issue a quick delta update. This just kinda falls in line with the other glitches that apple's been getting a bad rep for. It does sadden me. I love apple products.

Do not Disturb...has always seemed like a completely useless feature to me...If my phone has something important to tell me...I want it to disturb me. I think the bigger problem here is that people cannot simply turn it off, or figure out how to get their notifications manually for a few short days....come on.El Zurdo

That's the problem.
Don't get me wrong. I love apple products. It's just a shame that with all of the criticism that apple has taken lately, something as small as this is going to be added to be added to the list.

Weird I wonder why it takes a week to auto correct.

If only this glitch could be used as a bootrom exploit to provide an untethered Jailbreak. If there is these kinda glitches in the code then there is still hope.Twitter ID: @Jato_BZ

Anyone else find it funny that Apple uploaded a new ad specifically about the Do Not Disturb feature on the very day this was becoming an issue? Good thing they disable comments on their YouTube videos.

Really never understood people who criticise a feature they can't be bothered to figure out the reasons it might be used.
Other than which, nothing comes between me and my sleep - particularly not frivolous texts, etc.
Anyone who surrenders their sleep to the consideration of others is a bit needy IMNSHO.
