Some iPhones with Daylight Savings Glitch?



Mashable reported that some iPhones were seeing a problem causing it to improperly adjust to daylight savings time in the U.S.
Quote:
Daylight saving time hits tonight/tomorrow morning, which means we all lose an hour of sleep — unless you have a Verizon iPhone, in which case you’ll wake up utterly confused, as phones are currently falling back an hour.
They originally pinpoint the problem to Verizon iPhones, but also report that some AT&T iPhones may be affected too.

We've seen reports (another) from our readers that have seen the problem which also seems to affect alarms going off in the morning.

I have no idea what time it should be, but my iPhone's time matches my iPad's time, so I think it's right. :/

I'm with Rogers in Canada and my iPhone 3G Date & Time had "Set Automatically" to ON. I had to change "Set Automatically" to OFF before the time corrected itself. My Time Zone is set to Toronto.

My Mac changed correctly (Leopard 10.5.8) and the Set Date & Time automatically checkbox was ticked.

I'd say Apple have a problem with iOS 4.2.1 as well. Governments around the world should stop dicking around with Daylight Savings. That would solve the problem.

I have two I phones in the family. They both say different times and are set with apples computers. I am confused. Why can't the iPhone tell time correctly. I am going back to my watch!

I have a Verizon iPhone, and I had it happen. At midnight last night, my phone rolled back to 11pm. I went in to change it manually, and turning off DST corrected it. I left DST and rebooted my phone, and its worked perfectly since. It stayed at midnight then, and this morning, it has successfully rolled forward.

So yes, there is a bug, but a reboot fixed it for me.

Mine went an hour backwards last night, but it has corrected itself this morning. Strange...

Mine got screwed up.

At 2am ET my AT&T iPhone 3GS fell back to 1am instead of jumping forward to 3am. Now, it is saying 10:14am when it should be saying 11:14am. So, still broke. It is set to "set automatically" in preferences for date and time.

I think this is the first year that everything in my house is all automatically adjusted. Except the kids who didn't get the memo. Instead of waking an hour later they got up 1.5 hours early.

Checked my phone at about 3:06 this morning, when I hit the sleep/wake button the lockscreen clock said 2:06, but as soon as I unlocked the screen the clock adjusted to 3:06, hardly a problem for me, and Verizon iPhone by the way.

I had this on my Verizon iPhone. Last night, clock went back an hour instead of forward. Looked into clock settings, but decided to wait & see if it fixed itself by morning. Next morning, clock still incorrect on my lock screen, until I went to the home screen, then it corrected itself. Lock screen now good too.

No problems here on AT&T iPhone 4 iOS 4.3.

This is a Microsoft level problem, Apple! You aren't noobs. Get it right!

Haha, I remember being really late one DST morning that I had to work. I worked in a call center that was open 7 days a week, and I only realized I was late when one of my friends/coworkers called with a question that I was used to only taking at work, not at home. It was hilarious, at the time.

Every time... The biggest problem I've ever had with the iPhone is the face that it has a hard time with, well, time.

Without fail, my Calendar app is bonked, and when I have work until 11, the green colored event actually goes down to midnight. Tapping on it to bring up the info, it does still say 11.

Calendar glitch happens every single time, back or forward. No issues actually getting to the correct time, though.

Grammatically, yes. Commonly, no. That's like trying to correct people that say Bologna with an 'ie' instead of the 'ah' sound on the end. No one does it, and there's no reason to nitpick.
