Apple Delays New Year Resolutions For iPhone 5 Users Until Next Week

By  | 

While it cannot be classed as a case of you are holding it all wrong, we are not satisfied with the response from Apple when it comes to the discovery of the bug which is affecting the Do Not Disturb feature of iOS 6.

iPhone Do Not Disturb feature won’t turn your ringer back on until January 7

The ringers on people’s iPhones failed to turn back on, on 1st January, following a long silent period over the holidays. Cupertino have said they know about the flaw, however they have not yet offered a patch and instead told owners of their phone, the iPhone 5 in particular which comes with iOS 6 preloaded, to have some patience.

Their answer came in the following form:

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.

Of course you do have to take into account the fact that it could take Apple longer than the 5 days to come across the line of code, fix it and then roll it out. However you would have thought that they would have given iPhone 5 owners a better explanation, after all those who have remained faithful to iOS have already been very patient.

So if you’ve set any New Year resolutions, I’d suggest avoiding the Do Not Disturb feature if you don’t wish to miss out on anything in the next few days.
