I went to bed last night and manually set my iphone's clock 1 hour ahead so it would be correct this morning as i didnt wanna risk being late for work.

Well this morning my phone is still an hour ahead...even though i set it manually last night..its jumped ahead an extra hour by itself?

Anyone else experienced this? Is it normal? Missed out on an hours sleep, two if you count daylight savings!

I have 4.3.3.

Your phone is supposed to adjust automatically - which is exactly what happened.

I think most OS's make the adjustment automatically these days. My iPad, Windows 7 laptop and Android phone all adjusted themselves.




Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Hopefully the iPhone has it's daylight savings sorted out this year. It always seems to have a glitch. My androids have been great with daylight savings.




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Yup it adjusted forward even after i had already done it..

I thought maybe the network would adjust it for you, but by manually setting it forward i thought it would be alright - just in case vodafone didn't adjust it i guess just wanted to play it safe!

The Vodafone network doesn't adjust mobile clocks. 2degrees and Telecom do. The device changed the time itself, on top of what you've done.

I set my alarm on the only clock that didn't change it's time, and now I am late for work.

My Mac, iPhone, iPad, and even my Nikon D90 have all taken care of themselves. That just leaves the car and the microwave to sort!

It's a good thing that the touchpad updated itself as I completely forgot about dst.

Sorry, not Apple IOS related, but just noticed that the 'Count down' clock on the 1-day website is 1 hour less than it should be!

The timestamp for each post on geekzone is always 22hrs slow when I look at the full site. Any ideas?

When I went to change the clock on my Nokia, it said "Daylight savings adjustment due to take place within 24 hours, do you still wish to adjust the time?", or something to that effect. Useful!
