    Hi

    Have anyone else noticed that their stopwatch has stopped?

    I have had my stopwatch going strong for about 16250 hrs (i just couldn't stop it) and today when i opened the clock app, it started slow (as when a app starts for the first time), and the stopwatch was stopped and reset.

    A couple of friends experienced the same thing...

    Just a small thing, but still sucks

    Why would you want the stopwatch to run this long?

    That's interesting. There has been times that I have accidentally left it running, but never for two years.

    I noticed this happened today to me and someone else as well. I had my alarm clock running for almost 2 years on my 4S

    The stopwatch follows the software (i.e. continues even if you change iphone) not the hardware.

    Ha I love how everyone chimes in like leaving your stopwatch running indefinitely is a common thing. Too funny.

    I'm more curious as to what you guys are trying to time accurately for years on end (besides timing how long the Timer times itself:confused:)? Boiling an egg, running a race, timing a trip or what?

    Wow. I know this is way later. But start your stopwatch, go into your settings and change the time ahead a desired amount of time. Go back to the stopwatch and Voila.
    It should be stopped by the time going backwards but you can just hit start :)
