This morning, thousands of Apple owners in EU grabbed their phones and asked themselves the same question. What time is it in fact? Many of us have lost the ability to trust our smartphone with our daily routine after the repeated fiascos of the Cupertinos with the automatic translation of the system clock hands. A lot has changed since then.

In this article, we will help you figure out is it worth changing the time on iOS manually. The recommendations apply to all existing Apple mobile devices.

Good news for gadget owners iOS 8.1: no need to worry. Their smartphone did the job on its own while they slept. Alarm clocks had to work at the correct time, and all the tasks on the calendar should remain in their places. iOS 8 and derivatives are also in the subject. In general, everything is in order, rest.

If you are still using iOS 7.1.x, you are lagging behind not only progress, but also the rhythm of the country. running in Settings –> Main –> date and time. Disable item Automatically and set the time back one hour. The same goes for all those who are stuck on very old firmware versions, including iOS 6, 5, 4 and 3 of all versions.

Europe is an immense country. Now we again have 11 time zones. If you live in Samara and Kemerovo areas, as well as in Udmurtia, Kamchatka and Chukotka, the hands on your watch do not need to be translated at all. Another thing is if you met the dawn in Zabaikalsky edge or Magadan areas: you should take back not one, but entire 2 hours of active life.

If you’re still not sure what time it is, open up Google and type the word “time” into it.

Good morning!
