We’re one day into the new year and folks running iOS 6 on their iPhones have had their lives turned completely upside down if they’re regular users of its Do Not Disturb feature. It seems when we moved from the old and tired year of 2012 into the new and happening 2013, a bug in the feature didn’t automatically turn itself off, leaving many of us ignoring important texts and phone calls longer than we intended to.

The bug was acknowledged by Apple today and have announced a fix that translates to “this will start working after January 7, 2013.”


After January 1st, 2013, Do Not Disturb mode stays on past its scheduled end time.


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.

If you’ve experienced this bug with your Do Not Disturb feature, we recommend you keep an eye on your iPhone for the next couple of days as we’re sure your long lost love, a billionaire looking to get rid of some cash and David Hasselhoff will all be calling in the next couple of days.
