    Is it just me or is anyone else's iPhone showing the date wrong on the calendar app icon, even though the time and date is set correctly? Here it's currently Tuesday August 2, 01:22, but my calendar icon still says Monday 1.

    I am running an iPhone 4 on O2 UK, iOS 4.3.4, not jailbroken.

    Maybe this is related to those alarm clock bugs I read about a while back...

    As far as I know - it's the first time I've noticed anyway.

    Unless I'm not understanding what you're saying, that's what you should expect to see, right?

    Even if you're on eastern time it's still more than three hours until Tuesday. Mine displayed the correct date all through Monday.

    FWIW, my iPad (1st gen, 3G, O2-UK, iOS 4.3.4) is displaying the correct date on the icon.

    Is anyone (who is located somewhere where it is currently Tuesday) seeing this on their phone?

    One of those annoying questions, but, have you rebooted your phone? One in a while, things go awry with any device, and often a reset fixes them.

    I had a brain fart moment and I thought today was Aug 2nd, I looked at my lockscreen and noticed it said Aug 1st and i thought "oh, mine is wrong also"

    I quickly realized that today is Aug 1st.

    Yes I have, and it's still the same. My phone is never normally on for more than about two days at a time, because I usually let the battery drain fully before I charge it.

    Hmm, how 'bout that? Have you tried the hard reset? Hold down power and home buttons until it restarts?

    Hmmm...defintely interesting bug. What happens if you manually change the date and time under settings, backwards or forwards? Does the calendar icon change?

    I should have been clearer - I did hard reset it, and it is still the same.

    I have tried changing the date manually. My phone now thinks it's christmas, and it seems that no matter what time and date I set, the calendar icon stays stuck at Monday 1.

    I just noticed something interesting. Yesterday I put my calendar in a folder because I'm using calvetica instead. Today when you look at the folder, the date still says 1. However if you open the folder it says 2. The only way to get it to display correctly when the folder is closed is to remove the calendar and put it back in.

    I feel like if you went to Apple they'd just tell you to restore it as new. I'm not sure what it could be.

    Surprised, I thought this was a common bug?

    I get this all the time, the way I fix it is to hold the icon til it wiggles, that usually updates the date. Looks like a refresh bug to me :)

    Well who knows what was causing the problem, but I did a restore and updated it to iOS 4.3.5, and it started correctly showing Tuesday 2.

    Now it is past midnight, and it has updated to Wednesday 3, so it seems reasonable to declare the problem fixed. Thanks for all the advice and input.

    If your iphone is jailbreoken and you have bigify+ installed removing it fixes the problem (worked for me). Similar theming tweaks may cause the problem.

    (Digging up an old post because the problem still occurs with iOS 5.1 on my iphone)
