I was pleasantly surprised to find my clock had adjusted correctly when my alarm went off properly at 5am today after daylight savings time change.

Well done Apple!

bnapi: does the iphone's clock sync automatically over the internet with a time server by default?


Most smartphones will sync time with the mobile operator, if supported. Otherwise you set it manually.

In New Zealand only Telecom and 2degrees support it.

Offtopic but why does Vodafone not do this?

Murphy says that it worked because it was going an hour back and you all would have woken up anyway.

The real test will come when clocks go forward later in the year! ;-)
