Setting daylight saving time 2024 on your iPhone: this is what you should pay attention to

Daylight saving time will start in 2024 on Sunday, March 31 at 2:00 am. Occasionally this can cause problems on your iPhone. This is what you should pay attention to.

The time has come on Sunday, March 31, 2024 at 2:00 am: summer time 2024 will then start. The clock must then go forward one hour. If all goes well, your iPhone will adjust the time automatically. However, it can sometimes cause problems. That is why we have listed what you should pay attention to.

1. Set daylight saving time automatically

Your iPhone should automatically switch to summer time 2024. But of course this only works if the correct option is enabled. To start, make sure you have the latest iOS version. Then check the option like this:

  • Open the Settings app;
  • Tap ‘General’ and then ‘Date & Time’;
  • Activate the ‘Set automatically’ option.

If you see an incorrect time zone here, you can also adjust it. This is how you do it:

  • Open the Settings app;
  • Tap ‘Privacy & Security’ then ‘Location Services’;
  • Scroll down and tap ‘System’;
  • Activate ‘Set time zone’.

2. Set date and time manually

You can also set the date and time manually. In principle, this is not necessary for summer time 2024, unless you still have an outdated iOS version. Or if your country, region or government decides to change the time zone or the use of winter and summer time. Anyway, it works like this:

  • Open the Settings app;
  • Tap ‘General’ and then ‘Date & Time’;
  • Turn off ‘Set automatically’;
  • Adjust the time zone and/or date.

3. Check your alarm clock

In principle, this should also go well with the transition to summer time in 2024, but it has sometimes happened in the past that the alarm continued to go off at the old time after the transition to summer time.

Therefore, to be sure, check whether the alarm clock is still in good condition and works properly. Open the Clock app and tap ‘Alarm Clocks’ at the bottom. Check the time and whether it is still at the desired time.
