    I just noticed this, so I don't know how long it has been happening, but my meeting notifications show up on time about 15 minutes before the meeting, however they say "Tomorrow" on them. So odd!

    Something tells me its a GMT time discrepancy. There has to be some point during your day where it's the next day in GMT time but not your local time. Are these calendar events around that time?

    That would be about 8 pm for me and these are happening earlier. Good thought though. The notifications are fine on the phone, which is a weird twist.

    I got this too! I'm in GMT+1 so that's not the issue (appointment was at 6pm)

    Just throwing it out there. I've seen calendar's display activities incorrectly because of a GMT issue. It may not be the case here I'm guessing based on prior feedback.

    What does it show on your iPhone under Settings, Mail, Contacts, Calender, Default Alert Times for Events and All Day Events? Sometimes it gets messed up. When this happened to me, I turned off all the alerts and exited and then went back and set Events to 15 minutes and all day to 1 day before.

    Also, if you use another calendar program other than Apple Calendar, it could add its own reminder.

    I know it doesn't make sense, but the first one fixed my problem. I also was using Fantastical and it had its own reminder so I was getting too many alerts I fixed.

    Hope it works for you!

    Thanks! I don't have any default alert times set (put them in for each appointment depending on need. The weird thing is that I'm getting the alerts at the correct time (for example, 15 minutes before a meeting when it is set for 15 minutes). But, the notification tells me that the meeting will occur "tomorrow."

    Interesting that it's not just me. I think it's been happening and I never noticed it (because the alert came at the correct time) until I really read one of the notifications yesterday.

    I've only noticed it on recurring appointments so far.... though the next occurrence of the appointment wasn't 'tomorrow' so that doesn't explain it in any obvious way...
