Apple Acknowledges Do Not Disturb Bug In iOS 6 But Won’t Fix It

iOS: Do Not Disturb is one of the more popular enhancements found in iOS 6, but since 2013 rolled around, many users have found that Do Not Disturb doesn’t switch itself back on according to schedule. Apple has acknowledged the bug, but says iOS users will simply have to wait until January 7 for things to return to normal.

In a curt post on its support site, Apple acknowledges that since January 1, 2013, Do Not Disturb often fails to switch itself back on correctly. The solution?

Do Not Disturb scheduling feature will resume normal functionality after January 7, 2013. Before this date, you should manually turn the Do Not Disturb feature on or off.

Apple has form when it comes to bizarre calendar-related bugs: back in 2010, recurring alarms on the iPhone stopped working once daylight saving time kicked in.

On this occasion, we’re only having to wait a week for the problem to disappear, but it’s a reminder that Apple’s software suffers from bugs, just like every other developer: it does not have some miraculous solution that renders it immune from the need for extensive testing
