Apple admits to calendar bug on iOS 7.1.2; next iOS update will correct it
A person who lives in the Lithuania region, has noticed something odd about the calendar on iOS 7.1.2. After setting the proper region on his Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPad Air, the calendar application on both devices listed the wrong regional holidays. Instead of seeing the holidays in his region for 2014, the holidays for Mexico, Hong Kong, and Canada appeared.

When he tested it out by changing his location to the U.S., U.K. or Russia, the proper holidays showed up on the calendar app. Our "victim" not only sent Apple an email about what happened, he also put up a YouTube video, which you can find below.

Meanwhile, Apple sent him a response to his e-mail, which stated that there is a software issue with the calendar, which will be resolved with the next update. So, if you have experienced this issue for yourself, no need to panic. It will all be resolved with iOS 7.1.3, although no timeframe for that update was mentioned by Apple.


Thanks for the tip!

I'm not trolling and I'm not fandroid. I have also iPhone, facing same issue and it is annoying. Furthermore, no love from Apple for small countries... Check how much they support languages or countries for iCloud two step verification.

Did you also email Apple like this guy in the article? I hope you did that before posting this - too many people like to post and vent rather that do something constructive to resolve the issue. I hope you find time to direct some posts to the right place, if you haven't done so already.

Not trolling, making a valid point even if it is a little sarcastic. You always see Apple fans quoting "it works straight out of the box" but must expect comments when it does not and that is pretty regularly in recent times.Just look at The life of IOS 7.

This update wasn't straight out the box, but I see your point. Apple isn't nearly perfect, and iOS mos def has its quirks. Generally small, but none the less annoying.

It's obvious that pathetic trolls get upset when others build their platform up... We have idiots like them in the real world... We call them hatters... They aren't confident, or satisfied, by what they have, so that worry about what others have, like, and do.... Pathetic!

Well said bro, I haven't owned a device yet that doesn't act up from time to time. Heck, if it works right 80%, I'm good lol. +1

SHUT THE F * * K UP please. LOL Apple doesn't have to write code for 1,000 different hardware configurations, so when there is issues they aren minimal and usually tied to older hardware rather than only working on flagship devices and destroying the rest.

iFans: they just don't know any better. Think Socrates' cave parable. Or was it Aristotle? Eh, point stands.

It is Plato's allegory, but Socrates is featured as a character.

The Allegory of the Cave is presented by the Greek philosopher Plato in his work The Republic to compare "...the effect of education and the lack of it on our nature". It is written as a dialogue between Plato's brother Glaucon and his mentor Socrates, narrated by the latter.

Plato has Socrates describe a gathering of people who have lived chained to the wall of a cave all of their lives, facing a blank wall. The people watch shadows projected on the wall by things passing in front of a fire behind them, and begin to designate names to these shadows. The shadows are as close as the prisoners get to viewing reality. He then explains how the philosopher is like a prisoner who is freed from the cave and comes to understand that the shadows on the wall do not make up reality at all, as he can perceive the true form of reality rather than the mere shadows seen by the prisoners.

If you still experience lots of bugs and crashing everywhere maybe you should update something.

App crashes are something I never actually get. Little lag here and there, that's about it maybe a stutter.

No, we noticed it, accepted it and waited for the fix. What we did not do is run around claiming, "it just works."

It does "just work", it's doesn't "just work" perfectly. Issues pop up with electronics, RAM, CPU, wiring, all slip up from time to time bro. My iPhone trips out, and so does my note, but I love em both.

The "just works" that rabid Apple fans use means it works perfectly. By your more reasonable definition, most phones just work.

Not nearly perfect, but a great device.
