    I am using an iPhone 8. This is an Apple Refurbished replacement phone with the latest iOS installed. This morning I noticed it had slipped from eastern to pacific time. Has anybody that uses iPhones experienced this?

    I wish I had thought to take screenshots, the fix was easy, but in the process, the time getting screwed up messed up my DEXCOM CGM system.

    Yes, I use Verizon. So does Keri. Both of us use iPhones. Her iPhone stayed on eastern time. Mine jumped.

    There’s a setting to force it to stay on your home time zone.

    Just more info. I am retired and the phone never moved overnight. I think there was a bug in the iOS that caused this. If it continues I will have to get it fixed.

    When is the last time you shut down the phone?

    I shut down and restart my phone about every 3rd day. I am hoping this is just a random issue and does not happen again.

    I use this setting to stay on Eastern Time and it’s funny that I have my Apple Watch set to mirror my iPhone (stay on Eastern Time) and it does, until I walk into a Shipping Office and I get too far from my iPhone that I left in the Truck, it will revert to “local time” until I get back within proximity of my iPhone.
