Time Zone Settings iOS

If your Time Zone is changing unintentionally please disable Time Zone Support,
if you want to be able to change the Time Zone, for example if you're a frequent traveler, just enable it.

Always ensure your device uses the same time zone everywhere.

Please be aware there are two different Time Zones in your iOS device Settings

  1. iOS Device Settings > Calendar (or Mail, Contacts, Calendars in iOS9 and below) > Time Zone Override
  2. Week Calendar Settings > General > Date & Time

Although Week Calendar only uses the first one we recommend to keep them the same to avoid confusion.

Disable Time Zone Support

In System Settings

  1. Tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars

  2. Tap Time Zone Support
  3. Switch OFF Time Zone Support

In Week Calendar

  1. Tap on the little Gear icon in the bottom bar
  2. Tap on Settings
  3. Go into the Calendar entry
  4. Tap Time Zone Support
  5. Switch OFF Time Zone Support

Example

  • You create an event in your home time zone London (which is GMT) at 12:00h
  • You travel to New York where time zone is equal to GMT-6 in the winter
  • Your device time will 6 hours earlier now
  • As a result your event will be shown at 6:00h in NY time

Enable Time Zone Support

In System Settings

  1. Tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars

  2. Tap Time Zone Support
  3. Switch ON Time Zone Support

In Week Calendar

  1. Tap on the little Gear icon in the bottom bar
  2. Tap on Settings
  3. Go into the Calendar entry
  4. Tap Time Zone Support
  5. Switch ON Time Zone Support and ensure settings are equal to the system settings of your device as described above

Example

  • You create an event in your home time zone London (which is GMT) at 12:00h
  • You travel to New York where time zone is equal to GMT-6 in the winter
  • Your device time will 6 hours earlier now
  • Because you fixed your calendar to display events in London time zone your event will still be at 12:00h

Ensure your iOS device and Week Calendar are using the same Time Zone Settings

First, check the default Time Zone of your iOS device in Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Time Zone Support

Then ensure Week Calendar uses the same settings. To do so, please do the following:

  1. Tap on the little Gear icon in the bottom bar
  2. Tap on Settings
  3. Go into the Calendar entry
  4. Tap Time Zone Support
  5. Ensure settings are equal to the system settings of your device as described above

If this fails:

Please remove your synced iCal calendars from your iPhone, wait 5 minutes and re-add them again.
This usually clears the Time Zone cache of your iCal calendars.
