On my OS X Mavericks my time is always a few minutes (about 4 minutes) ahead of my iOS 7.1.2 iPhone. Both devices are set to set the date and time automatically.
On my Mac I can choose from:
- Apple Americas/U.S. (time.apple.com.)
- Apple Asia (time.asia.apple.com.)
- Apple Europe (time.euro.apple.com.)
but these do not differ more than a second or so.
On my iPhone I can only choose 'Set Automatically'.
Why is there a difference between both times? And which one is 'real'?
