Apple’s “Do Not Disturb” caused a bit of frustration for some users on New Year’s Day by not turning off. No word as to why the issue occurred, but Apple posted a note on their forum that says the bug in iOS 6 will fix itself after January 7th.

“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. To turn off the scheduling feature, tap Settings > Notifications > Do Not Disturb and switch Scheduled to Off.”

The Do Not Disturb feature gives users the ability to silence calls, alerts, and notifications.

    • Plazmic Flame

      Exactly! This is a feature! /sarcasm

      So done with iOS. BlackBerry 10 in 27 days!!!

    It just works. Isn’t that right Apple fans? lol

      My thoughts exactly, people have been touting that Apple products just work. Well sorry to say, but after getting a 5th gen iPod touch running iOS 6.0.1, I can honestly say, they don’t work any better than a current gen Android phone, and more importantly (IMHO), they are less intuitive to use than Android. The simple home button just doesn’t cut it for me. Need my menu and back buttons, they just make navigating around apps and the OS that much easier.

    whohooo! big news. why do tech sites post this crap

    • Gab

      he’s helping the iphone users know of this problem.

    • JUST SAYING

      To see what kind of revolutionary you have in your iCrap

  • Mike

    Maybe if they issue every owner a bumper case the problem will go away?

  • gjeff12

    As always, its not apple’s fault cause it’s working as they planned.

  • Why

    Why? Why do people still like iPhone?

    There is no innovation coming out of it. UI is clunky and unintuitive. Small screen. Poor battery life and small battery capacity. Lots of software problems or software still in beta. Expensive (you get less bang for your buck).

    Is there just that many iDiots in this world?

    • JUST SAYING

      and the latest no more jail-braking!!!! you stuck with what ever apple offered which is ZERO

    • @maikelparets

      Yes; yes there are

  • Nek Bye

    Apple didn’t issue any patches to fix the bug must be because no one is using that feature so they don’t bother.

  • @maikelparets

    The next big thing is already here

  • Mark

    Leave it to Apple to mess up a simple schedule silent mode app. Seriously though, you think a company with over 100 billion of dollars could afford competent software engineers.

  • REDRUM

    RIP APPLE!!!!!!
    sweet dreams

  • MBCrunch

    Apple: It’s not a big, it’s a feature!

  • MBCrunch

    sorry bug :S

  • Brad F, Brad F(anboy), jack

    They should fire Scott Forstall.. again!

  • jimmy the gee k

    So THAT’S why no one called or text me on new years!

    Oh wait… No, it’s because I own an iPhone.

  • john frink

    This reminds me of the iOS alarm clock alarms that do not go off on Jan 1st though 3rd every year.

  • Alex

    Sorry. I’m using Fandroid. Still stuck in November.

  • D

    Damn Africa :(

  • Matt

    All the fandroids are sh*tting on Apple for this but I’m pretty sure I remember Android missing the entire month of December from their calendar… Just saying.

    • mlander

      You mean, back in November, when iOS proponents were “sh*tting on” Android because of an equally silly glitch?

      Everyone makes mistakes. That said, Google fixed theirs – while Apple’s response appears to be “Just wait, it will stop being broken.” I guess they expect all devices to be runnin iOS 7 by next January!
