Australian States other than Queensland commenced dayight saving at 2:00am on Sunday 7 October.  Subsequent to this, the times for all future appointments in iCal on both my iPhone and MacBook were incorrectly changed to an hour earlier.  I waited 24 hours to see whether the situation changed - and it hasn't.  Does anyone know of a fix? 


I have selected the local time zone in settings - so this isn't the cause.


Many thanks,

    Hi Chris,


    I've now got an interesting one as well since daylight saving came in.

    I'm in Perth so our time hasn't changed, but when I send an appointment from iCal to someone on MS Exchange, their appointment time shows an hour earlier.

    However, if the appointment is for the very next day, the appointment time shows up fine at their end.


    Not trying to change your subject, just noticing some strange stuff as well.

    Hi Chris,


    Glad your getting closer to resolving your issue.


    My problem is pretty out there.

    I did more testing later today and it seems any appointment I send to someone from my iCal to our work MS Exchange system up to the 27th of October is fine.  For example I send an appointment for 10am and their calander will see it as 10am.

    However, any appointment I make from the 28th of October onwards is received but for an hour earlier.  So I send an appointment time for 10am and at their end it will be for 9am.

    It's got me guessing.
