    Hi there todd828,


    You may want to take a look at the time zone settings for your calendar. The article below has more information.

    When you click on the Time Zone on iCloud/Mac, even though it says Central Time (in my case), click on that and a map appears. Click on the map and it will bring up cities. I entered Chicago, and that did the trick, fixed wrong times on my iCloud/Mac calendar. My iPhone and iPad calendars were already correct, likely because they have Location Services.

    Since going to iOS 7, I am having a similar issue with Time Zone Support. I  have Time Zone Support ON, set for Central Time.

    During a recent trip to Hawaii, new appointment entries to Calendar were automatically set to Hawaiian time, disregarding the support for Central Time. When I got home, all of those events displayed 7 hours later than I entered them (they were all entered with Hawaiian time zone). I had to go back and manually change them all to Central Time when I got home.

    When Time Zone Support is enabled, I thought that all events stayed at the time entered rather than defaulting to local time. I never have had this problem with Calendar in previous iOS versions over the past four years.

    Is this a glitch with the new Calendar, or am I doing something wrong?

    I've had the same problem after updating to iOS 7. Even though I used time zones on the iOS 6 calendar on my phone, time zone support was turned off after I updated. You need to go to settings then 'mail, contacts, calendars'  then scroll down to the calendar section and tap 'Time Zone Support'. Hope that helped

    Thanks. But one of the first things I did on iOS 7 was turn on time zone support. It just didn't seem to work for me on my last trip. It kept entering the events in the local time zone so all the event times were wrong when I got home. I suspect it may be a bug.
