Users of Apple’s iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch who have employed iOS 6′s Do Not Disturb feature have discovered that since the turn of the year, it doesn’t switch off when scheduled.
Some users noticed the bug yesterday but, as The Guardian reports, most of us didn’t want to be disturbed for most of New Year’s Day anyway, so many users only noticed it today.
Apple hasn’t acknowledged the bug, which some users have found can be fixed by turning off Do Not Disturb and turning it back on again. That, however, didn’t work for us nor for many other users.
Do Not Disturb silences calls and notifications during a scheduled time period every day and displays a crescent in the menu bar.
The feature, somewhat embarrassingly for Apple, is highlighted in a new advert for the iPhone 5, featuring Venus and Serena Williams, which you can watch below.
