*affecting Also this isn't a matter of Intel, this is Apple's problem, every single time.

None of my 2 iPhones, iPad and MacBook automatically updated the time even though they are all set for automatic updates. I reset them all manually but if I want to put it back on automatic time updates it reverts to the wrong time again. I need it on automatic updates because I live very close to a different time zone and am constantly crossing. Why did nothing update this year? I've never had this problem before.

Isn't up to the cell tower you receive signal from to update the time/date? Pretty sure the phone would need an external source to determine the time. Even gps/location relies on an outside source.

Imperial system, month/day/year format and daylight saving time. America really need to do rethinking of their measurement standards.
