    iOS 6.0.1 has broken the timer on my iPhone 5 and my mums 4S. Minutes work great but setting any of the hours corrupts the timer (UK iPhones).

    Nice one Apple :mad:

    Just tried it on my iPad 3, same issue, seems this may affect only the UK models.

    Just tried it and it didn't work, timer is still corrupted when setting the hours. Everything else so far on the phone is fine.

    I do not have this problem.

    There's not really any such thing as a "UK model", Apple produces only a few of each type of device and they are sold in more than one country.

    If there was an issue, it'd be down to the region or language settings.


    EDIT: Yes I do.

    It only appears if you have the 12 hour clock enabled.

    People in Europe normally use the 24 hour clock, people in the US use the 12 hour clock.

    To me, the timer is functioning correctly - it's the display of the time remaining that isn't.

    Switch to the 24hr clock and the timer works perfectly, if I switch back to the 12hr clock, the timer is corrupted again.

    This is definitely something Apple needs to address.

    At least it didn't have that bug from the beginning, unlike iOS 5 where we had the disconnection between min and mins bug that remained uncorrected throughout all the iterations.
