Do you find that your iPhone’s clock isn’t updating for Daylight Savings Time, or if you travel to a different time zone? Not knowing the correct time can really be a hindrance, especially if you rely on your iPhone to let you know that sort of information.
Luckily there is a setting you can enable on the iPhone so that it will automatically update the time when things like this change. Our guide below will show you where to find that setting on an iPhone 7.
Can I Make My iPhone Update the Time Automatically?
