With my iPad I receive .ics calender invitations. The invitations that I send from my company computer to my iPad are all 6 hours off.
So I receive an invitation for a meeting 2-3pm EST and it displays at 8-9pm in my iPad when I am about to accept it. So the iPad is in middle-european time. I have checked and tried all the settings for calendar, and I haven't seen any improvent.

Oddly, when I open the same calendar invitation on my Mac, it is put correctly at 2-3pm in my calendar.

Does anyone know what is going on?

    I am a new iPad owner and am having this same problem. Although mine appears to be posting the time of the person sending the invite. In this case its Eastern time. How frustrating that this simple issue is 20 months old and unresolved.

    Wished I could help, but I have no solution here.  What is worse, you can accept the invitation and load to your calendar, but you do not have an option to adjust the time.  My only proposed solution is to accept the invitation, link with a computer, change the time on the computer, and then resync.  What a waste of time.  This should have been fixed eons ago.

    I have the same problem. When I accepted an ICS invitation from Kansas, it went onto my cal in their time (one hour behind me); when I accepted an ICS invitation from Spain, it went into my calendar in their time (six hours ahead of me).


    This happens from both my iPhone (IOS v6.1.3) and iMac (OSX v10.8.3).


    I see similar but not this exact problem spread around the different Apple Communities.

    Is there any resolution to this?
