'Do Not Disturb' iOS 6 bug to fix itself January 7
People will have to wait for a bug with the "Do Not Disturb" mode in iOS 6 to resolve itself, according to a new Apple support document. The <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/276536==http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4510" rel='nofollow'>webpage</a> notes that the glitch should disappear after January 7. Problems began yesterday, when Do Not Disturb started staying on past scheduled times. At the moment, the only way to still use the feature is to disable scheduling and manually flip Do Not Disturb on and off.<br><br>The timing of the bug is especially unfortunate for Apple as the company <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/276517==http://www.macnn.com/articles/13/01/01/features.tennis.stars.serena.and.venus.williams/" rel='nofollow'>just put out a TV ad promoting the feature</a> with actor Jeff Daniels and celebrity tennis players Venus and Serena Williams. While Do Not Disturb is on, a device won't play alerts for any incoming calls and notifications unless a person specifies callers that can get through.

Though I am in NO WAY shifting blame away from Apple for this stupid bug (shame!), really? Your DOCTOR is not on the list of people who's calls should get put through? Really?? You may want to rethink that decision ...

Sloppy programming... this "deal with it" attitude would never happen if Steve Jobs and his temper still ran the company.

Poor Q/A or not, I found it very odd that they run TV ads specifically touting this feature on New Years Eve. Go figure.

Yeah, you are shifting blame. In poor taste, too.
