iPod Calendar Off By Hours

October 25th, 2010 by steve

After I had returned from a trip to London, I set the time zone on my iPod Touch back to New York time. All was well, except for the appointment times — they were still on London time.

Having gone into “Settings” and ensuring my timezone was correct, I was out of ideas. Then I found this:

  1. Open ‘Settings’ on your iPod
  2. Then ‘Mail, Contacts, Calendars’.
  3. Scroll down to ‘Calendars’.
  4. Open ‘Time Zone Support’, making  sure ‘Time Zone Support’ is ‘ON’.
  5. Open ‘Time Zone’ and type in a major city in your timezone.
  6. Be sure this is the same zone as your PC.
This solved the problem.
Thanks, Apple engineers, for burying this in all those menus, rather than having the calendar fetch the timezone from the system.
