In the U.S., don't forget to move your clock ahead 1 hour
posted by Alan F. / Mar 10, 2013, 12:41 AM
Last year, not only did some iOS devices not change the time correctly, it actually moved the clock on some devices back an additional hour. You can imagine the chaos and havoc that created. Last year, we heard of one iOS user in Florida whose clock was running on Chicago time. And one user in Arizona, where Daylight Savings Time is not observed, had his clock moved ahead by one hour. Even Siri was confused last year as in response to inquiries about when DST would start, she responded with the wrong date!
If you're just getting up on Sunday and it is after 2am, check with another source just to make sure that your Apple iPhone or Apple iPad is giving you the correct time.

It was originally made for farmers and such so they had more hours in the daylight to do market stuff. Like if prices changed daily or something, the store was open and hour later or something. That's the explanation I always got.

We save a lot of money because we have one more hour of light so we keep the lights off for an houre more each day. That's the real reason why it has been done at the beginning. What's more, we have light until late and this is good because when we get off work we still have 2-3 hours of daylight that we can enjoy in outdoor activities and so on. In the morning, we'll have one hour more of darkness, but this usually is not a problem because, since the sun rises earlier on summer, we wake up with the sun anyway (at least the majority of us).

Has no affect on me... I live in Arizona. We get too much sunlight with 115 degree weather almost all year around. 80 in January, I think not!

Well according to apple, time moves backwards and the earth is the center of the galaxy. That's the only explanation behind apple maps and the time bugs. Oh and its iTime. Patented by apple in 1765.
