Plus, learn how to install any one of the thousands of apps from the App Store and extend the functionality of your device. Garrick devotes time to the new features in iOS 7, including iCloud Keychain, Control Center, AirDrop, and new Photos organization. The course also includes hands-on demonstrations of how to accurately type and efficiently use finger gestures, and includes tips for setting up the iPhone and iPad so they behave as expected. We also include an extensive section on troubleshooting help when the occasional glitches happen.
Now let's go to Settings, General, Date & Time. The date and time settings on your iPhone, iPad, or 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 a 24 hour or military format. It's all a 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. If you were to wake up from a nap and your iPhone said 1:38 it might be difficult to assume AM or PM.
Or you can just prefer military time. You also have the option to turn off the Set Automatically option that you see here. Normally you're device automatically sets the current date and time by using information from cellular or WiFi network signals. But say you're one of those people that tries to be early for appointments by setting their clock slightly faster. With the Set Automatically option set to Off. You can set the date and time manually, as well as the time zone. Just type in a major city in the time zone you're in and select it from there. And 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. If your like most people though you'll just leave set automatically turned on and you'll probably rarely need to come into these settings unless your device is having trouble finding the right date and time over your network.
