I am having trouble trying to understand Apple's Timezone Support features.
Taking the following scenario, can anyone explain to me what I can expect to happen with my calendar and alerts:
- Timezone support is turned On and set to Central Time for iOS/iCloud.
- iPhone > Settings > General > Date & Time > Set Automatically is On
- Create an event on my iPhone for 6pm Eastern Time with a 1 Hour Before alert
- Travel from Central Time to Eastern Time
What I expect to happen is that, while I am in Central Time, the event will be listed as 5pm, and then automatically change to 6pm when I travel to Eastern Time, alerting me at 5pm.
I am asking this because I have read a lot of articles which make it seem like turning on Timezone Support actually keeps your events listed at the Timezone for which support is set to (i.e. my 6pm Eastern Time event will always show up as 5pm not matter what timezone I travel to because my Timezone support is set to Central Time).
This is all very confusing and I have never fully understood Apple's design intentions with this feature. If anyone can explain to me what's going to happen with my calendar events I would really appreciate it.
