Daylight Savings Calendar Bug?

After daylight savings early this morning, the Calendar.app on my iDevices displays the red marker of the current time in the wrong place. It is placed directly one hour earlier than the actual time. Though, the time in red next to the marker is correct.

My iPhone is running iOS 7.0.4 and my iPad is running 7.0.6. Granted, both are jailbroken. However, my iPad is running very few tweaks, none of which tweak the Calendar.app.

Is anyone else noticing this issue? Just wondering if I should attribute this to iOS or a tweak I have installed. Thanks!

Good to know I'm not the only one!
Oh no, I hope this doesn't mean Calendar notifications aren't chiming right. Mine's doing the same thing.

Damn it Apple, it has been years and multiple iOS and iPhone/iPad releases, why haven't you fixed this annoying DST bug that rolls around every year (some times twice a year)?

I heard that in 7.1 beta it is fixed but can't confirm. Any beta user could approve this?

It appears to be fixed on my iPhone running 7.1 b5.
Oh good. I was going to say it would probably be fixed in the upcoming update. Glad it is. Now, Apple, WHERE IS iOS 7.1?!?!?!

Edit: Calendar appointments with Alerts set still sound off at the right time, just that little bar is behind.

Yeah this was there too the last time DST changed a bit after iOS 7 was released. Good to hear that it seems to be fixed in 7.1.

I'm on 7.1 beta 5 and this bug is not present. It was however present in the beta 7.0's and there was a thread on it. I believe it corrected itself by the next day.

Ok, so I think we can confirm the bug is in iOS 7.0-7.0.6 and the 7.1 betas are fine.

It might work its self out, maybe Apple will mess with the clocks and get it going.

FWIW, OS X's calendar is not having the same issue.

So you didn't even have an issue on the iPhone or simply it got corrected or wasn't there after midnight?

Maybe you didn't look in depth attached picture on first post but there you can see that the current time line (1:33PM) is before 1 PM while it should be between 1PM and 2PM. That's the problem.

no problem with my iPhone 5, iOS 7.0.6 (11B651)

same with my iPad Air, and iPad 3, both running 7.0.6 (11B651)

I saw report of this bug yesterday and immediately checked, all my devices show the line in day view in the correct spot and matching the correct time show.

not sure if region has anything to do with it, but fwiw I'm in Canada, on Koodo(Telus) network

I have not had an issue. If anything was corrected, it happened without my seeing a problem or taking any action.

I did look at the picture. I simply don't have the same problem. It is 9:23 right now and the little red line on my iPhone is below the 09:00 and above the 10:00.

The only thing that is different is I use the 24-hour time display. Maybe that has something to do with it???
