PSA: Apple’s iOS Do Not Disturb bug to fix itself on January 7

On New Year’s Day, quite a few iOS device owners were exposed to an iOS 6 bug – one that disabled the newly-added Do Not Disturb feature. The feature, naturally, allows calls and messages to go through to your device without bothering you in any way.

Unfortunately, the feature stopped working yesterday, and Apple has reached out to a variety of publications to confirm the bug and let everyone know that it will continue on until January 7. On that day, according to the company, the bug will fix itself automatically.

Here’s Apple’s “resolution” for the problem:

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.

Apple’s iOS seems to always have an issue around the New Year, but luckily the company is good about fixing them. For users of the feature, it is disappointing that the fix won’t happen for another five days; but it is good that it’ll go away at all.

Are you upset that your iOS device’s Do Not Disturb feature isn’t acting correctly? Or does it not matter that for another five days, your calls and messages may vibrate your phone in your pocket?
