Yesterday we reported a few fixes for the bug affecting the “Do Not Disturb” feature on iOS 6, which resulted in the feature to not turn off once it was set, causing the users of iOS6 devices to miss appointments, phone calls, and alerts. But it appears that Apple is promising an automatic fix by January 8th.
In a statement, Apple said, “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.”
This admittedly looks terrible for Apple, especially given the poor timing of their newly released advertisement for the Do Not Disturb feature, which has now become an Internet mockery:
So for now, until January 8th, your best bet is to leave the Do Not Disturb feature off, and suffer through midnight texts and 5am marketing email blasts. Or you could just turn your phone off at night.
