iOS: How to adjust Time Zone Support for calendars

This article discusses how to adjust Time Zone Support settings for Calendar in iOS.

When using Calendar on an iOS device, such as an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you may notice that Time Zone Support is on by default. Depending on how you intend to use your iOS device, you may wish to either leave Time Zone Support on or disable it.

Time Zone Support is on by default for calendars on iOS. You can check and adjust this setting in Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Calendars > Time Zone Support.

Time Zone Support will allow you to create and view events in a time zone other than the one currently used by your iOS device (other than the one your clock is set to). If you do not use Time Zone Support, your iOS device will default to the current clock setting. iOS devices that are location aware will automatically set their time zone, date, and time using Location Services. You can verify your current date and time settings in Settings > Date & Time.

To disable Time Zone Support for calendars

  1. Tap Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
  2. Scroll down to Calendars.
  3. Tap Time Zone Support.
  4. Slide the slider for Time Zone Support to OFF.
