    Is everyone else still experiencing the wrong time bug in iOS 9?
    Not even the betas but iOS 9.0.1, the clock is 30 seconds faster on my iDevice than computer.

    No major reports about it yet?

    My iPhone 6 on AT&T is exactly a minute fast.

    There are reports about it. Just not as many as I would expect. It must not be widespread. My iPad Air 2 was afflicted. A wipe and restore to backup fixed it.

    Yes I am. My iPad is about 15 seconds faster than my iPhone. Both are on 9.0.1. The second hand on my iPad is fast and the second hand on my iPhone hardly moves.

    Did Apple just release an update that displays the wrong time for millions of users?
    Just found this article but no one seems to care, is this the 'critical' bug that delayed watchOS 2?

    It's mostly a bug that seems to have appeared during the beta process as it appears to affect those who ran betas. Those who didn't run betas (and most users didn't) or those who ran betas but then did a fresh install of later betas or perhaps the final release don't seem to experience it.

    My iPhone 5S is 23 seconds faster then my iPad Air 2 and iMac (which are within a second of each other). Its bizarre.

    I doubt this will affect my schedule though. :)

    No this is absurd. I find myself standing outside the office like a fool for 30 seconds until everyone joins me.

    Not to mention that time I arrived early at the airport 30 seconds,
    the lady behind the counter burst-out laughing..

    I restored my iPad Air 2 yesterday through iTunes to 9.1b2 and from a backup, because my iPad was 166 seconds fast and gaining 2-3 seconds per day. The process restored the system time to the correct time. According to the Emerald app, my iPad was within 0.002 seconds of accurate. Now, 24 hours later, my iPad is 3.0 seconds fast again, while my iPhone is showing 0.000 discrepancy.

    So it appears that a restore doesn't fix the bug, it just resets the error to zero.

    Edited: NOW it just fixed itself somehow. I turned off automatic time. Manually reset the clock 1 minute slow. Turned back on automatic time. Still off 3 seconds....Left it running a few minutes. And boom, now it's off 0.006 seconds. Strange.

    My iPad stays about 2 minutes plus a little ahead of everything else. I tried setting the time manually and setting it back to auto again but it went back to being just over 2 minutes fast again. I will do a restore later and see if it fixes it.

    waiting for the breaking new story how some angry business person somewhere throws a tantrum & stands on a runway, blocking it, cause their 2 min inaccurate iphone made them miss their flight

    I have been running 9.1 but the time was still wrong. Just did a restore real quick and its fixed. Good thing a restore is an easy process.

    There can likely be some smaller (perhaps temporary) discrepancies like that, although with betas some people had discrepancies of a little over 2 minutes in particular.

    I had the same time issue on my ATT iPhone 6 with iOS 9.0.1 where it ran 2 minutes fast. On my ATT iPhone 6s with 9.0.1, the time is now correctly displayed.

    Wow, this is odd as I have an app: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/emerald-geneva/id347828665?mt=8
    that uses NTP to get it's time and is consistently behind system time by 15 20 seconds. When I launch is I can see is synchronise and watch the second hand move until it is in the "correct" place.

    Yes, it can't be that hard for Apple to fix a bug like this right??

    My iPhone 6 is now 50-55 seconds ahead of my other devices after installing iOS 9. The clock in my car (set by GPS), an atomic clock in the house, and my Mac all agree, but the phone is wrong. I never installed beta versions of iOS 9.

    My coworker has an iPad 2 where the clock is instantly 2 minutes fast if he has it set the time automatically. He had to change it to manual and set it to the correct time. Again, this problem appeared with iOS 9.

    It looks like 9.0.2 has resolved this on my phone, at least for now. Fingers crossed that it holds.
