Here we go again: DST bug discovered on iOS 7.0.6

Ever since the original launch of iPhone OS, now known as iOS, it’s gathered an interesting level of popularity not just for its ease of use, but also because it can prove to be very unreliable as your clock. If you remember years ago, it was fairly common for people to miss their alarms after any changes came with Daylight savings time. You’d think that after the recent administration changes in iOS, this would be fixed, but you’re wrong.

This time we don’t have any reports of people being late for work thanks to their iPhones, but there is a bug in the operating system. If you hit your Calendar app and notice the time bar at the current time, it does accurately tell you what time it is, but it does so over the wrong block of time. It’s hard to know if this problem will be fixed though a simple patch, but given the rumors of iOS 7.1 launching in the next couple of days, let’s hope the fix arrives there.

Call this a minor bug if you may, but it’s ironic coming from the company that considers itself “fanatical” with the details of its products. Are you experiencing this problem? I have noticed it only happens to those in areas affected by DST, but please let us know in the comments.
