    I filed this as a bug during the iOS 8 beta and amazingly it's still not fixed.


    1. Set a timer via clock app or tell Siri: "Set a timer for 8 minutes" (or any amount of minutes)

    2. Lock your iPhone


    The counter on the lock screen will always show 0:00

    It's been like that since iOS 7.

    I submitted a bug report last year and still not sorted.
    It only seems to happen when your clock is set to 12 hour mode ( am/pm )
    If you set your clock to 24 hour mode the timer will work as normal.
    I also believe that Apple don't read the feedback reports or they would have fixed it by now.

    I have my iPad and iPhone set to 12 hour and they both do (and have shown in iOS7) the (Siri set) timer countdown on the lock screen.

    I too set a timer via the Clock app and it shows it counting down on the lock screen. Phone is on a 12-hour clock.

    I use Siri to set timers all the time and the lockscreen counts down for me.

    I set timers all the time and have never seen that. I always hit the home button to check on the status of the timer while cooking, and it always shows the time.

    The only issue I ever ran into is if I ask Siri to set a timer and lock the screen too quickly, before she fully processes it, and then the timer doesn't get set.

    Doesn't happen here. All timers count down via the lock screen as normal.

    Works fine for me...Set a timer on the lockscreen from control center.

    Just tried it via Siri (iPhone 5, iOS 8.1.1, clock in 12-hour mode). Timer shows count down on lock screen just as it should. No issue here.

    As I recall it happens in 12-hour mode in some regions around the world. Not in US, for example, but potentially in UK, etc.
