Some iOS users have trouble with switch to Daylight Savings Time
posted by Alan F. / Mar 11, 2012, 2:59 PM
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.

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.

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.

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 )

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