    Both my iPad and iPhone are (were) set to set the time automatically. I noticed over the last few days that they have both been consistently running about 5 minutes fast. Does anybody know is Apple are having problems with their time servers?

    No problems here. Right on with the Naval Observatory time sync.

    Yes, I've noticed similar on my iDevices. I use four daily and they're all set to auto-time, but they're all a minute or two apart. That's been the case for a long time. Goofy, but I've not sweated it.

    I have noticed that each devise has it's own internal clock .so I can send an email and it is received before it was sent ??? True
    Thought my wi if was delaying mail .but this is the out come after much experimenting.
    I phones computers iPads all have there own time clock.so if one is set 4 minutes earlier than another the times messages are sent and received are all over the place?

    Nope! My iPad is 5 seconds slower than the London Greenwich Mean Time. Although I have to say it was synchronised when it was updated with IOS5.
