Apple's Do Not Disturb feature is now fixed, just like that
posted by Ray S. / Jan 07, 2013, 1:40 PM
Apple was quick to acknowledge the issue with DND, but it also said that it won't be providing a fix for it, since the feature was going to fix itself automatically on January 7. Although it's very interesting to know why this problem happened in the first place, as well why it got resolved today, we guess we'll never know, as Apple wouldn't care to provide an explanation. Still, it's a fact that the DND feature can now turn itself on and off automatically, as if nothing has happened.
After hearing this happy news, tell us, folks - do you use Do Not Disturb or a similar solution with your smartphone?

On Android I use a profile app that tells me on the home screen which mode it is in. I'd be very careful with this feature come December 31, 2013.

I was wondering about this bug resurfacing some time later. If the issue is with the first week of a year, I would expect that by then, some iOS update before then would have this fix in it. For a bug that lasts one week, it is likely that trying to put out a bug fix within a week's time frame for a bug that only lasts one week is not worth the effort and risk of possibly introducing new bugs.

NO, IT IS NOT FIXED! Turn back the date in your phone, any date before January 7th and you will se that it is not fixed.

Mine worked flawlessly this morning. Marty next Saturday nite do not disturb is sending u back to the future. I installed a flux capacitor on my iPhone so when I go back in time to the 5th of January do not disturb will still work, as long I have some plutonium and 1.1 jiggawatts of electricity.

This is an Apple/iOS thread and I only see Fandroids. Instead of complaining about something that's already fixed itself. Why not complaing something that's still not fixed and bricking S3s left and right? http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?

Could've sworn Samsung released an update that fixes that, with an apology. apple would've told me I'm using it wrong and the phone is operating exactly as it should.

Been fixed already by an update. They also replaced any dead S3 and note 2 including rooted phones. They didnt just sit around and do nothing. They actually handled the situation perfectly and its been proven to have been a software issue. So, this makes your point stupid.
