Do Not Disturb iPhone and iPad bug found in iOS 6

Those iPhone 5 owners who decided to sleep through the coming of the New Year may have found a library of messages they never heard thanks to a new iOS 6 bug

 

UPDATE:

Apple has announced that the bug affecting the Do Not Disturb app for iPhone 5 and iPad will sort itself out by January 7th. In a statement on its official support blog, Apple said:

"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."

ORIGINAL STORY:

A bug has been found which stops the Do Not Disturb feature for iPhone 5 and iPad turning off after the 1 January. The feature which comes with iOS 6 allows users to silence everything except their most important contacts.

Engadget reports that the bug is connected to 1 January with users finding that when they woke up the Do Not Disturb feature was still enabled with the only fix being to change the date on the phone or restart the handset.

Apple hasn't yet come forward to comment which suggests that there may not be a fix available at Apple stores yet either. This isn't the first time that the technology company has come unstuck thanks to the date.

In 2011 an iOS clock bug meant that many users found their alarms failing to go off on New Year's Day with the clocks then failing to update to DST automatically.
