Its amazing how quickly we come to depend on things though. I love DND. I'll go back to manually turning it on for now, and I'm not super happy about this issue *but I'll get over it.

6.1 beta 4 had the issue for me on the first, but nothing since...even though it's only one day later.

When was the last time they used the "It just works."? You're talking 2007 and it was referring to OS X, not the iPhone or iOS. Start applying it to everything even years later. Is it still The New Generation Of Olds?

I'm sure Apple would refund you for the portion of features not working on your phone. You'd be looking at about 0.1. But you paid for that.

BTW: Don't set any appointments or reminders for Feb 13th, 2014 as that date hasn't yet been added to the iOS 6 calendar database.

It is a bug where a phone could miss incoming calls, not such a small thing depending on what calls you miss. Also it is part of a bigger picture where Apple sw is not as reliable as it was, it does not "just work", which was the whole point of paying the Apple tax.

If only there was a DnD app in the App Store that provided more functionality than Apple's offering. I only see two or three DnD-type apps and none of them look particularly good. If there was a good third-party DnD app, Apple could recommend that we all go download that while they get their stuff together and/or the bug works itself out. That solution seemed to work for Apple Maps, anyway.

The Daylight Savings jump should be fun this year if this little bug is any indication. Maybe my phone will spring ahead four hours and wake me up when it's really only 3 AM.

Not at all. You can still turn it on and off yourself. Only the auto schedule is messed up for some folks

My phone has had the 'Do not disturb' feature for years... It's called the 'Off' button!

They can't claim 1st of Jan was some unforeseen edge case... unless they thought the Mayan prophesies were true.
Sounds like you're not a developer. There are a lot of edge cases out there, especially when working with dates. In hindsight it's an obvious edge case, but before hand there are a ton of scenarios and not all can be tested. Bugs happen.

They have a year to fix it - it's been 2 days, and all their devs are probably on holiday. Give them a break (but then you'd have to stop hating Apple ). And as is stated above, this is more than likely a very simple date formatting error - which is very easy to do, very easy to miss and can quite easily slip through unit tests too.

Calendar logic is not a simple thing, it's probably one of the more complicated "day-to-day" thing programmers have to do.

They told everyone it will resolve itself on the 7th, because it will. They never said to relax. What the hell do you expect them to do patch it and release an update in under a week when the problem will fix itself? Honestly..

The bug is so bad, that even the act of adjusting the on time for the feature turns it on instantly.

So, what else isn't working that Apple knows about and doesn't give a damn about? Privacy features? Security features?

They are basically telling millions of customers that they don't give a damn.

Google or Samsung need an add making fun on this one...
I agree. A lame solution. They should patch it for those that use it

What a bunch of cry babies complaining about the answer from Apple. As if your life revolves around this feature working or not working for a week. Oh, wait, I guess it does.

Seconded. Is there some kind of array issue, like an extra week of null scheduled events?

The world didn't end on 12/21/12 so the code in place didn't work.
