Some Pixel models are confused by Daylight Saving Time!
All of the Pixel models that had an issue with DST were allegedly set to receive the date and time from the users’ carriers
Historically, the Pixel models have not experienced a problem with DST unlike the iPhone, which has had issues with the time change dating back to 2010. Pixel users who experienced a problem with Daylight Saving Time all had their device set to receive “network-provided time and the network-provided time zone.” You can check out those settings by going to Settings > System > Date & time.
And while most of the iPhone users we spoke with today didn’t report any issues with the time change, we did hear from one iPhone owner who told us that it “Took iOS 11 hours to figure out DST this year.” He said that resetting to automatic time didn’t help, and neither did rebooting the phone. So he changed the time manually. All was good-for an hour. At that point the clock rest itself to the wrong time. So he set it on auto and a couple of hours later the correct time was being shown on his iPhone.
If you’ve experienced any issues today with the Daylight Saving Time time change on iOS or Android, please let us know by responding to this story. If you have any screenshots, please include them.
It is extremely odd that our smartphones can handle all sorts of complex tasks and yet something as simple as Daylight Saving Time seems to baffle these devices.
