iOS 6's 'Do Not Disturb' Not Shutting Off Automatically on New Year's Day




Some iOS 6 users who use Apple's scheduled "Do Not Disturb" feature may find that their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch hasn't automatically disabled the feature on New Year's morning.

The issue was reported on Whirlpool forums as well as our own MacRumors forums. The "Do Not Disturb" feature silences calls, alerts and notifications when it is enabled. Users may optionally schedule "Do Not Disturb" to activate between specific hours. This allows you to automatically disable calls and notifications while you sleep.

It's this scheduling feature that appears to be misbehaving on New Year's Day. MacRumors reader Spacesamurai posted about his experience:
Quote:
I am in Japan so it is 2013, and I am finding that my iOS devices (iPhone 4 and iPad 2) are showing "Do Not Disturb" even though it is outside of the time I set for them. Not sure if this is related to the new year. Reloading the devices does not help and the software is up-to-date.
Spacesamurai's experience has been echoed by others, but not everyone.

Apple has had other bugs in the past related to New Year's day. In years past, Apple has had issues with alarms not going off into the new year. Fortunately, the "Do Not Disturb" feature does not disable alarms set with Apple's built-in Clock app.

Year after year and Apple can't seem to figure out how to calendars and clocks to work together.

Why should DND automatically shut off on New Years anyway?

it's not a bug, it's a feature; your iOS device wants you to hear all the 'happy new year' texts from your friends!

Perhaps part of the code that determines when to deactivate DND checks the year along with the time? Maybe the DND isn't turning off because it isn't finding 2012 in the date - and therefore would explain why it would work if you turn it off manually and then back on - since the 2013's match?

That said, even with any other iOS issues, I refuse to believe that Apple is that sloppy... I hope.

Apple didn't want to silence the phone for the New Year. What with all the greeting calls and all...

While this is a little silly that something seems to happen ever year, don't assume that calculating time is a simple thing.

It's nice to see all these trolls making a small issue look like the end of the world. Oh no!, "do not disturb" has ruined my New Years.

This isn't daylight saving time, (which, isn't all that hard to do), it's a year. When you consider it's a flagship part of iOS 6, it's quite sloppy on Apple's part.
