iPhone Users Experiencing DST Glitch?

Reports this morning point to some iPhone users experiencing problems with Daylight Saving Time. So far, the problems have been USA-based, where users report that the time is not changing properly.

Daylight saving time hits tonight/tomorrow morning, which means we all lose an hour of sleep —unless you have a Verizon iPhone, in which case you’ll wake up utterly confused, as phones are currently falling back an hour.

Reports pinpoint the problem to Verizon iPhones, but updated reports say some AT&T iPhones may be affected as well.

With the DST change this morning, are you experiencing time problems with your iPhone? If so, post your experience below:

iPhone Model:

Update 1: Some users are reporting issues on Bell and Rogers. Fido users seem to be unaffected. No word yet on Telus.

Update 2: It now seems that affected users are sporadic and from all carriers.

Update 3: Some users have found a fix if you’re experiencing the problem:

1.) Navigate to Settings > General > Date & Time and toggle Off “Set Automatically”. Set your local city.

2.) Toggle “Set Automatically” back On and restart the iPhone.
