Discover how to get the most out of your iPhone or iPod touch, from making calls, browsing the web, managing your time, and getting around town to taking notes, shooting photos, and listening to music. In this course, author Garrick Chow shows how to perform all of these tasks and more, and introduces the enhancements built into iOS 6, including enhanced language support and commands for Siri, shared photo streams, and the new Reply with Message feature for handling incoming calls. The course also includes hands-on demonstrations on how to accurately type and efficiently use finger gestures, and offers tips for personalizing the setup of the iPhone and iPod touch. An extensive section on troubleshooting helps when the occasional glitch happen.
Next, let's go to Settings>General>Date & Time. The Date & Time settings on the iPhone and iPod touch can be tweaked to a certain degree through these preferences. Here, you can set the time to display in standard 12-Hour format or in 24-Hour military format. It's all the matter of preference. This might be particularly useful if say you live in the extreme north or south, where it could be bright and sunny at midnight or pitch black at 2 PM. So if you were to wake up from a nap and your iPhone said 1:38, it would be hard to assume AM or PM, or you could just prefer military time.
On the iPhone, you also have the option to turn off the Set Automatically option. Normally, the iPhone automatically sets the current date and time by using information from cellular signals. But say you're one of those people that tries to be early for appointments by setting their clocks slightly faster. With the Set Automatically option set to off, you can set the date and time manually as well as set the Time Zone. This is important since different time zones have different rules as far as daylight savings time. So, if you're setting the time manually, the time will still automatically adjust to daylight savings time or standard on the appropriate dates.
The iPod touch is not able to set the date and time automatically, so you'll see the Time Zone and Set Date & Time settings here by default. But if you do want to set the time manually, just tap Set Date & Time and adjust the time from here. Similarly, adjust your Time Zone by tapping Time Zone and searching for your city. Those are the Date & Time settings here in iOS 6.
