“Do Not Disturb” will fix itself

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.

    Sorry, this is kinda a bullshit response.

    “And will be broken again come January 1th 2014″ ;-)

    • Yeah, I mean how many years in a row will iOS have New Years day issues? It’s boggling they haven’t fixed the issue yet.

  • It’s kind of a lame response, but I understand why this was the direction they took. It would probably take them longer to find the bug in code, make the fix, internally test it, externally test it, etc.

  • This is a tiny pimple on the giant fucking ass of life.

    I wonder what Dalrymple’s comment would be if this was affecting Android. Perhaps a snide comment about Android’s openness? Or a nifty remark pointing out that Android users need only switch to iPhones in order to avoid these kinds of problems?

    • Probably. What’s your point? You understand who this site is written by and for, right? You undertand there is no pretense of objectivity here, right?

      And you’ll note Jim made no comment on this story. So it’s just as likely that, if he did write about a similar Android problem, he’d have the same reaction.

      Seems like you’re just looking for something to pick at.

    I made the mistake of looking at the comments about this over at appleinsider.com. Wow, those people want retribution. They want blood!

    They are jerks.

  • This is a lame response. I understand it’s not really feasible to get an update out in time to fix it, but given that there was a date bug last January 1, they could at least say “and we plan to fix this so it won’t happen next year” and, you know, actually fix it.

  • “Do Not Disturb” will fix itself” Hey Apple – it shouldn’t have “broken itself”.

  • Seriously people? Lame response? Ok, so what SHOULD have their response have been?

    It’s not like they did this on purpose. Sheesh. The way people are reacting, it’s a good thing everyone else in the world is perfect at their jobs.

  • Weak sauce. I dig the feature though. My S3 has it and it is very helpful.
