Issue or symptom

The time on iPhone does not automatically set in some countries. This is because not all cellular network providers support this feature.


To manually set the iPhone time, choose Settings > General > Date & Time > Set Date & Time (You may need to tap Set Automatically to Off before you can see Set Date & Time).
