    DND has never really worked for me.

    I have to turn all sounds/vibrations off manually if I don't want to get woken up by whatsapp in the middle of the night.

    Broken for me too. You can temporarily fix it by changing the start time. Then it seems to realise it's wrong and turn it off. However it breaks again the next morning.

    After the debacle of Apple Maps it seems Apple are making a habit of dropping the ball.

    If you want to see another add an all day event to April 1st (perhaps for the bank holiday) then go to March month view on an iPad.

    I wondered why my phone was so quiet on the first working day back! I manually switched it off, but left it set to come back on tonight. I'll be sure to check it manually in the morning again.

    DND works normally really well for me, its only when I looked at the phone when I got to work and noticed the moon icon that I figured something was wrong.

    Hope they sort it quickly.

    Apple and NYE really don't get on do they?!

    Wasn't there a major bug last time to do with alarms?

    Must be device specific running iOS 6.

    All of my three iPads running on iOS6 are set to DND from 10pm to 7am and they all shut the DND feature off fine.

    4S here, same problem.Changing the start time made the phone realise it should already have started but it didn't shut itself off at 7am like it should have. Hopefully it will be sorted soon.

    I just turned it off yesterday when I noticed it hadn't done it automatically. Today it turned itself off just fine. We'll see if it behaves itself tomorrow.

    Apple seem to think it'll sort itself out by monday, for what it's worth.

    Apple have already reported that the DnD bug will resolve itself on Monday.

    I've got the problem on my iPhone 5 (iOS 6.0.2) with my Scheduled DnD between 00.00 and 07.00. I can live with the bug until Monday, just need to remember to switch it on and off manually.

    Thankfully it doesn't affect the alarm.

    iOS really does seem to have more than it's fair share of time-related bugs.

    Hopefully it will actually resolve itself. In such a short time frame it seems hardly worth rushing a fix for a non-critical issue.

    Its apparently down to the way date is formulated in Unix (which IOS is based on) and will fix itself on the 7th of Jan.
