For Anyone Experiencing problems with Do Not Disturb....

I thought I was going crazy because all of a sudden Do Not Disturb was not going off/on as scheduled on my iPhone and iPad. I finally found this on the Apple support page and thought it would be helpful for others.

Re: For Anyone Experiencing problems with Do Not Disturb....

I saw a great explanation on why. It has to do with the form of the year they used for each action. Turning off the do not disturb uses the date based on calendar week, YYYY, and in that use, next Monday is the first week of the new year. The turning on of the do not disturb function uses the actual year, yyyy.

As of today, YYYY= 2012 and yyyy = 2013. Apples own version of "darn you auto correct" next Monday YYYY will equal 2013 and all will be good again:-)
