Hi guys,

Since updating to iOS 12 on my iPhone 6 Plus, I've noticed that the status bar clock on the top of the screen does not update all the time.

It seems like it sometimes get frozen and updates every 2 minutes.

As an example, you can see in the screenshot below that the actual time is: 10:20 but the status bar shows 10:19. IMG_6406.png

It doesn't happen all the time but I've noticed it happens quite often as someone who relies on a live clock time. And yes, my time is set to set automatically. Toggling this on then off would force-update the time to the correct time, but the problem keeps recurring.

Would be great to know if any other users have this issue?

Thanks

just time or just fine?

I'm still having the same problem. Best way for others to check is to load up the clock app and tap on the world clock tab and check if the minutes are the same as the minutes on the status bar at the top of the screen.

I'm having this on my iPhone 6. Sometimes it can be two minutes out-of-date.
