European iOS 7 users reporting daylight saving time bug

ios-7-dst-bug

For folks in many parts of Europe, daylight saving time ended over the weekend. While the shift technically gives back the hour lost when DST kicks off, it also had an unwanted consequence for many iOS 7 users. Though the operating system displays the correct time post-DST, the calendar app has been having some issues.

The red line indicating the current time is positioned as though DST never ended, despite the fact that correct time is still listed in the margin. The good news, though, is that the bug has not been affecting scheduled events, reminders, and alarms, as has been the case with past time-related bugs in iOS.

iOS 4 was the biggest culprit, with both DST and the changing of the year causing wonky results. With this earlier example, many users did miss or lose saved alarms because of Apple’s error.

With the end of DST in the United States coming up this weekend, will American users be affected? Could Apple push a fix in time? We’ll have to wait and see.
