A New Year and a New iOS Glitch, as Apple's Do Not Disturb Feature Sleeps Through 2013

By Gary Cutlack on at

Apple's automated Do Not Disturb feature has gone a little haywire with the big switchover to 2013, and is now refusing to wake up some iPhones and iPads from their scheduled offline time.

The glitch is being widely complained about on Apple's forums, where users are seeing the little moon icon permanently on display and their phones not coming out of sleepy time as scheduled. It's effecting iPhones and iPads, with versions 6.0.2 and 6.0.1 of iOS prone to the bizarre narcolepsy bug.

As ever, it's pretty sporadic -- some have it, some don't. And some that don't have it might pretend they do in order to get an extra 40 minutes in bed today. [TUAW]
