Apple said Wednesday that the bug affecting the Do Not Disturb mode will automatically correct itself after Jan. 7.
On New Year's Day, owners of Apple mobile devices reported that the Do Not Disturb function on their iPhones or iPad did not turn off as scheduled.
The Do Not Disturb feature was added to iPhones and iPads with the release of Apple's latest mobile operating system, iOS 6. When enabled, users can schedule times when mobile devices notify them of calls and text messages. During the "do not disturb" period, calls go straight to voicemail and text messages are silent.
On its support website Apple posted this resolution to the issue:
Do Not Disturb scheduling feature will resume normal functionality after January 7, 2013. Before this date, you should manually turn the Do Not Disturb feature on or off.
To turn off the scheduling feature, tap Settings > Notifications > Do Not Disturb and switch Scheduled to Off.
