    Default Do Not Disturb Glitch Fixed One Day Early for Some


    New Years Day of 2013, iOS 6 users that take advantage of the new Do Not Disturb feature on their devices to silence notifications for a period of time had experienced a terrible glitch that caused Do Not Disturb to continue past the scheduled time that the user had set in the Do Not Disturb preferences pane. A similar New Years glitch affected alarm clocks in 2012.

    The bug caused many people New Years Day, and many days after, to miss their notifications because they were never notified until hours later when they woke up their iOS devices to find multiple notifications stacked on the lock screen. Apple issued an official statement on Wednesday promising that the nasty bug would fix itself automatically on January 7th.

    Early Sunday morning, the glitch appears to have been fixed for some. These lucky users should find that Do Not Disturb is no longer continuing past its scheduled time. It is one day earlier than expected, but many iOS 6 users that rely on Do Not Disturb will have no problem with the feature being fixed a day early.

    With the glitch fixed, these users should now be able to set scheduled Do Not Disturb sessions and feel confident that the feature will switch on and switch off at the times selected from the Do Not Disturb preferences pane. If you're not a part of the handful that the feature has been fixed for, it should be up and running between today and tomorrow.

    Is Do Not Disturb working correctly for you?

    I dont know why people are making such a big deal out of this... I've never used DND and personally i think that it is useless... If i dont want to be disturbed i just put my phone on silent...

    So because YOU don't use it YOU don't know why people make such a big deal out of it. Unreal.
    Anyway I didn't get the early fix either. I had to manually shut it off also. Be glad when tomorrow comes and it gets a self fix.

    Its automatic. If you forget to unsilence your phone, it stays silenced.

    Really?!?! Maybe you need to try it then. Do you set a fresh alarm to wake up each morning? That is if you get up at a particular time each day. Or, do you set an alarm for the week.

    Vibrate still causes some alarms to be audible. Also DND will cause your phone not to vibrate.

    Thatís like saying because I donít use windows or android OS, that they are terrible and pointless to have ever been made, they are good operating systems and DND is a good feature. People like windows and android. Just because I donít use them, doesnít mean they are pointless/not necessary.

    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

    It's not so much the having to turn DND on and off manually, I've been suspecting that it's been staying on even when it says it's off, there will be oddball times where I won't get either an audible or vibrated notification that something has come in on my phone. Does anyone know why this will magically fix itself by tomorrow?

    I'm guessing Apple saw a bug in the code but were lazy enough to issue 6.0.3 when 6.1 is around the corner and they prolly fixed this bug in 6.1 already. Apple released a stmt that it'll be automagically fixed.

    Is it really newsworthy that a glitch in iOS fixed one day earlier than it was supposed to?!
