iPad 2 (Wi-Fi only) automatically update internal clock now available with iOS 5
I notice that in the new iOS 5 operating system under settings>general>date and time, there is a new setting: "Set Automatically" now available for the Wi-Fi only iPad 2.
Was wondering if anyone knows how it actually works? e.g. how often does it sync with a time server? Is it done on a regular interval or only if the time is "out" by a set increment?
Is there a way to get it to sync more regularly, such as every hour?
Any thoughts or knowledge much appreciated.
But be aware that the automatic time update comes at a
significant cost to your battery life. All the talk of 9to5Mac, MacRumors, and CultofMac today concerning iPhones but it would have to adversely affect battery life in our iPads as well. They also recommend that you turn off Diagnostics and Usage and Location-based iAds while you are turning off Setting Time Zone.
