Use the following Terminal command: sudo systemsetup -settimezone timezone For a list of valid timezone values, use: sudo systemsetup -listtimezones

I recommend iStat Menus. It integrates very nicely with the mac menu bar and the Date & Time widget is very customisable and can be made to look identical to the stock Apple menubar app. You have the option to add as many time zones as you like and they are all accessible by clicking the time in the menubar (see screenshot). iStat Menus 2 used to be ...

Since your phone is a Verizon iPhone, it got the time from the cell towers. (Verizon, along with Sprint and unlike AT&T and T-Mobile, uses CDMA which broadcasts the local time from the cell towers.) It must be that Airplane Mode is actually "don't transmit" mode instead of "don't transmit or receive" mode as I'd always assumed. Edit my reasoning: I ...

Go into the Settings app. Enter the General pane and select Date & Time. Set your time zone.

You can disable the automatic setting of date/time in Settings->General->Date & Time. Of course this also means that you have to manually set the time if you actually move to a different time zone on purpose.

The server has nothing to do with the time zone. It supplies the time in UTC+0, and it is up to your devices to use their knowledge of your time zone to work out what the time is where you are. For your Mac, in the Date & Time preferences, check where your Mac 'thinks' it is: The same applies for your iPhone: If it is identifying you as being in ...

Status clock is free, and available from the mac app store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/status-clock/id552792489?mt=12 Worth a look too: https://github.com/palaniraja/mclock Note: Loversclock, mentioned in another post, didn't download.

Time Zone support allows you to view and set events in a time zone other than the one in which you are currently located. The time in which you are viewing events can be set in the time-zone support preference. Events created whilst time-zone support is off default to the native time-zone of the calendar which was set when it was created and turning ...

Wi-Fi can be enabled even in Airplane mode, maybe your flight had Wi-Fi in it and your phone connected to it?

The iPhone (like pretty much all cell phones that support this feature) gets its timezone information from the carrier. Unfortunately many carriers send out the wrong timezone information and there's very little you can do about it other than switch off the Set Automatically option in the Date & Time settings.

I think you might want to try the "floating" time zone; I believe this will let an event be at a specific hour, regardless of the time zone. (As for why use time zones at all: We have an office in Zurich, Switzerland, and one in New York, US, and we share some of our calendars; having time zone support means, as an example, that I can see at a glance if ...

I now include the actual time in the title of the event. For example: "9am Flight LAX -JFK" This way, if the phone changes my time setting (which it inevitably does regardless of how I have it set) I will still know what time my flight is. Doesn't work for alerts, but I often enter flight info in a different time zone from where I will take the flight and ...

the only viable option i've found is to: 1) if you use iCloud, do not sync your mac and your i-device to the same calendar. i know this sounds stupid, but if you sync your mac and i-device to the same calendar, it is bound to mess things up. 2) turn timezone support on on your mac and choose the "floating" timezone when entering an event. 3) on your i-device,...

Even though the timezone was set correctly on a Mac, an iPhone and in iCloud settings, syncing across devices has always been off by a couple of hours for me. Turns out, the time zone, though specified, was disabled for Calendar. To fix this, click the gear icon in the upper right corner and choose Preferences: Go to Advanced and make sure the first ...

I just had this problem and resolved it. My iPhone thought it was in New York when it was in Abu Dhabi. Go to Settings > Location Services > System Services System Services is the last item on the Location Services page. Scroll all the way down and tap it. Inside System Services, there will be options for: Cell Network Search, Compass Calibration, ...

You should see the Location you are in under the set automaticly button. As below. It is greyed out, as this is taken from your current location, so you must have location service enabled.


2

I am assuming that you are using the website for this. Go to iCloud, and open the Calendar app. Click on the gear at the top-left, then click preferences. Go to the advanced tab, and check "Enable time zone support". Now, when you edit an event, you can select the time zone in the event information.

We went by car from Eastern time (Tallahassee FL) to Central time (St. Louis)), my iphone 4S changed at the time zone border, on the way back my wife's iphone 4S switched exactly at the timezone border, but mine, now a day later still shows Chicago time (both phones are on the newest OS), Powering down (pressing home and side button) and up again remedied ...

The answer is yes. I've written an AppleScript that will convert the incorrect Exchange produced TZID to a properly formatted one. This means the fix is only on Mac OS. I've a post on this, http://thefragens.com/blog/2008/12/ical-exchange-time-zone-fix-chapter-3/ Let's start at the beginning. Sometimes integration of a Mac in the corporate environment is ...

Sounds like Argentina does not follow DST, or does so on a very ad-hoc basis. This is possibly a bug in OS X (try updating your system) or perhaps an inevitable side-effect of not having a predictable schedule to code against.

Seems straightforward enough, the app you uploaded has a timestamp that indicates your machines time is incorrect (namely according to the stamps it was built after you submitted it), so either you have a time machine, or just the wrong time set. They are just letting you know, and allowing you the chance to correct the issue and resubmit if you like. It ...

What was the current time and timezone when you set the clock ? In any case, use date -u to figure out what exactly the system clock is set to. EST time doesn't start at 01:00 but at 02:00 which turns to 01:00 EST.

The iPhone does not use NTP to synchronize its clock. It uses a feature of the cellular network. I can't tell you why your Mac's clock is off that far, but I suggest you use nl.pool.ntp.org instead of time.euro.apple.com.

First thing I'd do is update your software. There's a reason the last release for Leopard is 10.5.8.

If you have a number of events you want to enter and you have their times in another zone, it's very handy to use Calendar's time zone support. First, go to Calendar->Preferences, and click Turn on time zone support. This will enable a dropdown in the titlebar of your Calendar window: You can then use this menu to change the display of everything in ...

I don't think Calendar will automatically change the time zone. In fact, it probably shouldn't, otherwise it could be confusing if the user didn't notice it has changed. However there are two things you can easily do: Enable Set time zone automatically using current location in System Preferences > Date & Time > Time Zone. This will ensure that the ...

I also have this problem ( also in NZ) but it seems to only be birthdays in November and December and January which are wrong. Weird. Perhaps if anyone with NZ localization sees this on the three month window (11/12/1) it's actually a bug in the code and not something we are doing incorrectly with our data when entering it.

My TP-Link router had problems with AppleTV. The iPad didn't see Airplay. I resolved it by following this Apple KB page on iOS and OS X: Recommended settings for Wi-Fi routers and access points.

I like Hour Lite. It's FREE, simple and has cute UI :)
