Apple Annoys iPhone Users With 'Do Not Disturb' Bug

When the New Year arrived, iPhone users running iOS 6 were irked when they discovered that the built-in "Do Not Disturb" scheduling feature was not working as it should. Instead of shutting off at the user-appointed time, Do Not Disturb remained on, preventing users from receiving calls and messages until the feature was manually switched off. Apple issued a bulletin saying the bug would automatically fix itself on Jan. 7, but it isn't talking about what went wrong. The bug probably wasn't a big deal to most users, but this is another example of Apple making a mistake and then acting like nothing happened.
