    I just came across an odd thing on the time my iphone displayed.

    I noticed that the iphone time was a minute different than my desktop time.
    I call WWV and checked and sure enough the iphone was exactly one minute behind.

    I re-booted the iphone and it corrected its self. It has me wondering how
    it could have gotten off.

    odd?

    I wonder how often the iPhone gets time information to update itself.

    Your iPhone time is behind my Mac's desktop time by exactly 9 seconds. The iPhone's time comes from AT&T and the Mac's desktop time and location information comes from time.apple.com. I don't think it's a big deal unless you are using your iPhone to conduct time travel experiments in which case time is very critical. Or if you are trying to further prove that time is not a constant. In that case, Steve would be proud.:rolleyes:

    I've been gone for a couple of days and just checked this thread.

    I took a look at my iphone and what do you know its exactly 1 min behind again.

    It must be a bug with the phone. oh well, I'm not working on any time travel
    apps so I guess I can live with it.
