After widespread reports regarding a scheduling issue with the Do Not Disturb feature in iOS 6, Apple has released official documentation confirming that the bug exists.
“After January 1st, 2013, Do Not Disturb mode stays on past its scheduled end time,” Apple says.
The Cupertino mammoth doesn’t yet offer a fix, as the flaw can only be patched via software update. However, Apple does reveal that “Do Not Disturb scheduling feature will resume normal functionality after January 7, 2013.”
