Fixing the iPhone Daylight Savings Problem

Did your iPhone wake you up an hour earlier today? It’s 28 October and clocks around the world went back an hour so we could sleep from 2am to 3am twice! But the iPhone didn’t and woke us up on Daylight Savings Time.

The good news now is that you have an extra hour at hand and that the problem is a known iPhone bug. It’s going to take you two minutes to fix:

  1. Go to Settings > General > Date & Time
    Date & Time Screen on the iPhone
  2. Switch the Set Automatically to OFF
  3. Reboot your iPhone
  4. Go back to the Settings > General > Date & Time screen
  5. Switch the Set Automatically back to ON

You should notice the iPhone automatically resetting the time to the correct one. Problem fixed.

Have a great Sunday!
