Apple: iPhone’s Do Not Disturb bug in iOS 6 will fix itself on January 7th
A software bug related to the Do Not Disturb feature in iOS 6 on iPhones will fix itself come January 7th, Apple says.
At the turn of the year many iPhone users noticed a problem whereby the Do Not Disturb setting was permanently enabled as of January 1st. Apple has now acknowledged the issue via a support article posted to its site, and says that unfortunately users will need to put up with it until the fault resolves itself on January 7th.
Do Not Disturb is a feature Apple added in its iOS 6 upgrade which allows the user to disable all notifications at the flick of a switch. The feature can be customised so that only certain apps or contacts will be able to cause the phone to vibrate or emit a tone of any sort.
In the meantime Apple suggests that users disable the scheduling feature in Do Not Disturb by following these steps:
Settings > Notifications > Do Not Disturb > Switch Schedule to Off
If you’re not too bothered then leave things as they are until the issue is automatically fixed on the 7th!
