    Got a new iPad mini and the time zone setting just keeps spinning & spinning and never stops. I have it set to auto.
    I have the set the time zone manually to get the right time.

    Is there anyway to fix this problem?
    Thanks..

    Anyone have any idea about this? The iPad 4 is doing the exact same thing.

    Odd that both the mini and your 4 are doing the same thing. Do both connect without issues on your wifi?

    Maybe try resetting your modem and router and if that doesn't work, maybe a hard reset of both the mini and iPad.

    Edited to add that am guessing the problem is related to your wifi connection.

    They connect perfect to my Wi-Fi router and work 100%.
    Maybe I have a setting or something off on my router.

    Just that time zone wheel keeps on spinning,

    I heard that this tends to happen to people who live in rural areas.

    Didn't you say you lived in Hooterville?

    I suspect that if you let it set your Location(in settings) automatically it will work, good luck
