    On the Lock Screen, I now have 2 different dates, one overprints the other, and very interestingly, only one is accurate! This began on or about the time of the latest iOS update, iOS 8.1.2. I have taken a screenshot, but need to know how to display it here. Weird, eh?

    Did you set a screenshot of your lock screen as your wallpaper?

    Clever. Wonder if that's the issue.

    The force is strong with this one. Even I couldn't imagine that scenario :p

    Using a screenshot of the Lock Screen as the wallpaper would certainly cause that double, one right / one wrong date and time issue, however, the wallpaper I used was a photo of the Northern Lights that I found online. I wish it was that simple! I'll gladly show y'all if someone can tell me how to post a screenshot here. So, still a mystery, probably related to iOS 8.1.2. I'll change the wallpaper again to see if the strange issue recurs.

    Soft reset your iPad? Hold the home button and sleep/wake button pressed at the same time for 5 seconds. That will restart your iPad and usually fix odd issues, though I've never heard of this one.

    I would love to show y'all a screenshot of this phonomenon. Can anyone tell me how? I have an iPad Air.

    I changed the wallpaper, and the issue has not persisted, however, I'd love to know how it came to be in the first place.

    Press home and lock button at the same time to take a screenshot

    Thank you, Marcus. As I wrote in the initial bubble, I have collected the screenshot, but I just don't see how to post it here at MacRumors. I searched the FAQs, but apparently didn't discover the right key words to find the answer.

    Long story somewhat shorter than it still could be if I don't stop typing... /-: ...how do I accomplish this seemingly secret task of screenshot posting at MacRumors?!?
