Some iOS users have trouble with switch to Daylight Savings Time
Even with your Apple iPhone aware of your location, the clocks are showing incorrect time. One Florida based user has a clock running on Chicago time and in Arizona, where DST in not observed, the Apple iPhone moved some clocks ahead an hour. A simple device restart might fix the problem, or turning the time automation off and on again might do the trick.
In the future, Apple iPhone users might do well to heed the advice from one iPhone user who suggests using the device's countdown timer as a backup just in case the clock on the phone goes wonky. And as far as today's shift to Daylight Savings Time (or "Summer Time" in Europe), we would suggest just checking with another time source for now, just until you've either confirmed that the clock on your iOS device is correct or until you have set the correct time yourself.
Even Siri didn't know the correct date that DST would start

I had to get up early this morning at the butt crack of dawn (5:30am) and my time was right. And I use my iPhone for my alarm clock.
Must be AT&T iPhones. AT&T is always messing something up. Their clocks must have got throttled.

And that's why the clip with Siri saying that DST starts on Wednesday was on a VERIZON phone. Reading Comprehension > You

Its bound to happen with any OS. It just so happens it has happened to iOS on a rather predictable rate as of late.

Sure, yet not a single one of my clocks had issues with the time change. All of my clocks set themselves forward an hour without a hitch. My alarm clocks (2x), my DVR, my HTPC, both windows PCs, HTC evo view tab, and my bionic(which is a POS) and D2 all went forward as they were supposed to do. This is an apple problem, and has been for a while. But they just make such great products. (rolleseyes.) I'm not trying to pick on iOS, but this is a major fail on it's part.

Time flows differently for those in the reality distortion field.

I have never owned a phone, be it Android, Windows 5/6/6.5, or a regular phone, that had this issue.....wow

Word. I have several Android phones and they all changed, my TV changed, DVR changed, laptops changed, even my XB360 changed. Just checked my OG 2G iPhone 8GB and it changed. ( no SIM but connected to WiFi )

It does look like PA is fishing for some iHate, I mean traffic. I can't even hate on this article, it's not even news.

I thought cell phone times were just fed from the towers, not calculated by the OS.

Apple probably wanted to have control over it too, just like everything else.

Daylight savings time switch-over mishaps or not, no big deal, iphones and ipads are gonna sell anyway.

Maybe if Apple owners were smart enough to change the time theirselves this wouldn't be news...

My wife's iphone 4S had no problem - I guess it was an issue for .0000000000001% of them.

I have an iphone 3GS and have never had such problems in 3 years. Maybe that are isolated cases. Who knows;)

My iPhone 4s switched time zones for no reason. It was a 2 hour difference so I had to turn on airplane mode and shut the phone off and turn it back on for it to work :(
