Hi,

The Apple time servers (in particular time.asia.apple.com) are incorrect with respect to New Zealand standard time. The period of daylight savings was recently extended, and so we are still in daylight savings time now. The servers have not reflected this change and are tuned to non-daylight savings time meaning they are an hour behind. Please have someone look into this issue and correct the change dates for future.

    Time servers are UTC (GMT). They do not handle time zones or daylight saving. That is up to the computers that use them.
    The period of daylight savings was recently extended, and so we are still in daylight savings time now.

    Do you have the latest updates installed? When countries change time zones or dates of daylight saving, the operating system has to be updated to match. Sometimes there is not much notice of the change, so updates may be too late.
