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 ...

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 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 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, ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 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.

Would having a menubar clock that displays other timezones in a drop-down menu work? I find iStat Menus works for me for seeing other timezones easily, albeit not as easily as having the time in the timezone you want shown right there. It's commercial software, but there are similar open source project out there. Maybe one of them does the "other timezones ...

When you log in to iCloud you should be able to select Singapore's timezone. Click your name in top right corner Click Time Zone to open Time Zone modal window Try to aim for Singapore as showed in the pic below. It doesn't have to be precise. It's good enough to hit timezone and any city in it. If you didn't manage to click Singapore precisely and other ...

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 ...
