Most first few days of most years seem to have this bug. The bugs starts on January 1st (based on the From time under Scheduled) and is usually fixed on the first Sunday of the year (except if the first day of the year is a Sunday, then it is fixed on the second Sunday). Years preceding years where the first day is a Sunday are not affected by the bug.

Let's check the next few years, this is the pattern :

2013 : Issue fixed on Sunday Jan 6
2014 : Issue fixed on Sunday Jan 5
2015 : Issue fixed on Sunday Jan 4
2016 : Issue not happening even though first day is a Friday
2017 : Issue fixed on Sunday Jan 8 (Jan 1st is also a Sunday)
2018 : Issue fixed on Sunday Jan 7
2019 : Issue fixed on Sunday Jan 6
2020 : Issue fixed on Sunday Jan 5
2021 : Issue fixed on Sunday Jan 3
2022 : Issue not happening even though first day is a Saturday
2023 : Issue fixed on Sunday Jan 8 (Jan 1st is also a Sunday)
2024 : Issue fixed on Sunday Jan 7
Etc...

The same pattern happens if you go back in time as well.

Note : If DND is scheduled before midnight, then the issue and the fix (see above) are delayed one day since it's based on the From time under Scheduled.

Bazinga! I changed the date to January 8, set the DND to turn off at 1:34am (it was 1:32am when I made that change) and hey presto, it did disable whereas previous attempts at leaving it on January 2 all went wrong. So I guess come morning I'll have to turn it off manually but at least the schedule feature does enable itself without problems, that's a relief. Guess that all those affected will have to wait until next week before the problem goes away. unless Apple decides to send us a special update - fat chance though... Really, you'd expect a ridiculously expensive device like an iPhone (or any iOS device for that matter) not to have bugs like this but more importantly, I am feeling very sorry for all those Apple diehards who are covering their ears and going "lalalala I can't hear you" whenever something made by Apple doesn't "just work." Nice attitude to life, that.

I thought Android beam was the ugliest, most useless feature until I tried it. However, it actually works very quickly and very well, much faster than sending a picture or URL over SMS.

Now I've tried iPhone too, but something iPhone still can't do - I can't be looking at a picture in the photo gallery and tap it to share it from there through any app I want. I think iPhone users are limited to Facebook and Twitter and SMS? On Android I can share through any app installed on my phone that can share...SMS, Kik, Facebook Messenger, Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, etc.

Just because you use an iPhone doesn't mean you have to ignore its flaws. iOS still has a long way to come with open sharing. NFC is extremely fast and easy, and if iPhone had it I'm sure you wouldn't be calling it useless when we have the internet to share instead.

True, my previous phone was a Sony (Ericsson) Xperia arc & I loved the way sharing is dealt with in Android: I used twicca in addition to Twitter for Android and if I wanted to share a photo I could choose which Twitter client to use straight from the photo gallery itself.

We can only hope that iOS will mature a bit more in the (near) future. It's not a bad OS but it's not perfect either, and well, the same goes for Android: they're both excellent but improvements will always be necessary one way or another. That's the beauty of technology and software I guess: there IS no ultimate solution, so it's down to personal opinion and choice.

Do Not Disturb worked fine for me today.

It's probably a bug that needs a particular set of conditions to set it off.

I really depend on it, as the 5-6 hour time difference means if I don't set "do not disturb", I get calls from folks on the East Coast at 3am my time...

(I live in Hawaii for what it's worth. iPhone with iOS version 6.0.1.)

Boy, people love bashing Apple these days...

Just like 2012.12.21 - nothing happened.

The big issue is that it's something Apple that isn't working 100% perfect and thus the blogs can get big page hits out of hyping it as a universal design error and fatal flaw

You're so brilliant that I'm certain you know that DND doesn't do jack to alarms. They go off no matter whether DND is on or off.

DND is about calls, facetime and texts. Doesn't stop you from getting them just from hearing any sounds or having the screen light up if the device is locked.

But you knew that. Just like you know exactly what the problem is and how to fix it.

Me too. Just like every Daylight Savings Time I have no issues. Haven't in 4 iPhones and now 3 iPads. All of which I kept up to date with the latest software installed no more than a month after the release.

Which tells me that this isn't just about iOS or everyone would be having issues.

The fact that it didn't turn off at the time is was meant to, basically means it's a "time event", much the same as when people were having problems with alarms in iOS. Something is meant to happen at a certain time. In this case, turn DND off. Understand? This is a simple notion, and should be basic for any programmer. That's what I was referring to. I never said it affected alarms.

And yes, if I had access to iOS source code, I probably would be able to fix it. And while I was at it, I'd fix stupid things like the swoosh sound before SMTP negotiation in mail as well. But I guess you also think that's normal behaviour for a mail client.

No problem here

Why all the hysteria? Works fine here, and if it hadn't a simple manual intervention will fix it. Hardly a show-stopper is it.

There's always some Muppet who'll come up with an inane example to make their point. Believe it or not, people managed to live their lives quite well before the invention of the mobile phone.

Oddly hit all my devices today, but not yesterday.

But as my devices all have an override for important calls and I've enabled the repeat call within 3mins, nothing urgent / important has been missed.

1/1 OK - 1/2 Not OK

My iOS devices DND feature was ok on the 1st, but today (1/2) it did not turn off at 6:00AM. Thankfully, this is not a big deal. I will wait to see if it resolves itself overnight.

Have a good day with your family and try not to ruin it because DND isn't working.

Happy New Year!
What an annoying reply to what is an actual legitimate discussion about a real iOS bug. We've all contributed to Apple's market cap and there's no reason why we can't voice our concerns.

While I agree that I do see some whining, to brush off the bug as something "silly" is silly in itself. This is how developers earn their living, they need to fix and improve upon iOS. I was also a perplexed user when I found the DND feature to be on during the day on Jan. 1st when it should have been functioning at night. Power cycling the phone got the moon to disappear but even today on the 2nd, it's reappeared. Let's hope this gets patched up with an upcoming update.
