If you are wondering when the clocks went back, or what local time is right now, then it’s good to first know the 2014 daylight saving time ends in USA this weekend. You should have already put your normal clocks back one hour around the home, or if you own an Apple iPhone, Android device, or iPad everything should have happened automatically.
This change comes shortly after the UK saw clocks go back, although some of you might experience problems with your iOS devices this weekend if you have a setting wrongly set. You can see our article about when clocks go back tonight to check a certain iOS setting, but remember this was for the UK rollback. The same setting still applies.
The screenshot for this settings page within iOS can be seen above. If you don’t have this set to automatic, then there’s a chance your time didn’t change and any alarms set won’t be going off on time.
Clocks fall back at 2am local time on Sunday in most places – while there is different timezones across the US, the time to change clocks back should be around 2am local time in most areas. The exceptions to this change include Pickle Lake (Ont), Southampton Island in Nunavut, areas of Québec east, and Creston (B.C). These areas stay on their local time all year round.
Did you have any problems with devices meant to set the time automatically, especially iPad and iPhone that have had issues in the past?
