    Recently got an iPad 3, my first Apple product. Awaiting an iPhone 5, especially keen to be able to sync wirelessly between the two so I can get rid of my Blackberry. Therefore disappointed to have had the same experience with the calendar crashing in March 2013.

     

    Worryingly, proof that Apple pay less attention to these issues than we would expect is that I have already been onto the feedback site to leave enhancement suggestions for various features/products and when prompted to register which iPad, iOS version etc. I was using, the pop up menus only went as far as iPad 2 and iOS 4 !!!

     

    As previous commentators have requested, come on Apple, get onto it please !

    Same here iPad 2 wont show March 2013 in month view

     

    All these "fixes" are just ways around something that should work but doesn't . Apple sells on design and usability !

     

    FIX IT!

    Same problem on iPad 1 -couldn't quite believe my eyes when it kept quitting March 2013. Changing events from all day to timed seems to have temp fixed it. Thank you contributors for your posts

    I am amazed that yet another iOS update (6.0.1) and this issue is still not resolved even after reporting to Apple many months ago.

     

    I know that by changing to non all-day appointments for 1st April temporarily fixes this issue, but not so easy if it is a birthday coming in from contacts, besides don't see why I should have to.

    Every app designer response more agile to customer feedback regarding errors of his app than Apple. For me it is a scandal that Apple is not able to fix this issue...may they think that there are only 5 months left and than this bug is history...

     

    Apple you really should start moving with this issue

    Problem persists after updating to 6.0.1.

     

    Please send bug reports to Apple.

    I've just reported this bug to Apple as well, as it is still present in latest updates.

    Changing the all-day event on April 1st 2013 to a normal timed event solved the problem for me also. Can't quite understand why it only happens on iPad. Mine's an original stilling running iOS5. Can't help thinking it is those geeks at Cupertino just having a laugh at our expense though; or maybe its the nerds.......?

    As a temporary work around, I have found I can view March 2013 in the "week" view.

    When in the calender go into calendars at the top deselect UK holidays so that Bank Holiday comes off (it's 1st April 2013) and then you will be able to get March 2013 as I had the same problem and I tried everything then just now I happened to mention it to my husband and he suggested it and it worked.  I wish I had asked him before as I've been trying for about 9 months now.

    This is a work around and it works, but still: it's a disaster Apple didn't fix this annoying bug months ago. It's not what you expect from the worlds greatest mobile os.

    We deleted all 3 events from April first and it fixed the problem. Once I was stuck in March and it kept reopening in March, even when I restarted the device and it kept shutting iCal, couldn't do a thing.

    I must say as satisfied I was with apple/mac before, the more disappointed I'm getting. They keep asking more and more money for devices with flaws. I don't mind paying those prices for equipment that works, but my MacBook, iMac, iPhone and iPad have recently really annoyed me with small little bugs.

     

    Eg. I was writing a mail (that's all I was doing) and the MacBook without reason just crashed, everything got stuck.

    When I'm calling with my IPhone it disconnects while I'm just standing in one place, with good reception (a problem that often occurs)

     

    Good luck mac, hope you'll be getting better again soon... If I want bugs, I'd have Microsoft.

    Same problem; annoyed after reading on here that nothing has been done to fix this having just bought a new iPad for my parents.

     

    Tried reporting the bug but since I'm not a registered developer I can't.

     

    There always seems to be a problem with Apple calendars; I remember a time zone bug a few years ago which moved every one of my all day appointments a day earlier. Can these things not be tested?
