Apple Says 'Do Not Disturb' Bug to Resolve Itself on Monday, January 7th

Some users discovered that the scheduling portion of the "Do Not Disturb" feature in iOS 6 failed to work after New Year's Eve. The scheduling would turn itself on as scheduled, but would fail to turn itself off again.

Apple reports in a support article that Do Not Disturb scheduling will begin working properly again after January 7, 2013.

So what happens next year?

And what about other issues? Should we turn our phone off for several days?

Unacceptable Apple!

So true. I'm not usually one to cry "unacceptable" but this truly is. "Don't use it for a week and it will resolve itself" is just a crap answer for a third rate company, not acceptable for the "it just works" company.

The bug is so bad, that even the act of adjusting the on time for the feature turns it on instantly.

So, what else isn't working that Apple knows about and doesn't give a damn about? Privacy features? Security features?

They are basically telling millions of customers that they don't give a damn.

Google or Samsung need an add making fun on this one...

I view this more as a feature than a bug.
