    tfisher, I've looked around other forums and have found quite a few examples of the same complaint, but no solution. Closest thing to an explanation is speculation that some iPads go out of sync with the network time signal when off or asleep.

    Anything new on this incorrect time issue?

    I have watches that get a signal each night, cable tv, desktop computers, even a Sony Dash that are all the same time.

    The iPad is 3 minutes faster than all of them.

    I even shut down the iPad and re-started it, then connected it to itunes thinking that might fix the time error but no it doesn't.

    I don't remember the time being wrong before today either.

    Time is set to set automatically.

    Not a big thing but wondering.

    My iPad 'auto' time is off by about 3 minutes also - 16GB Wi-Fi. I use to go to setting and adjust the time but now I just leave it as is and figure- it's close enough - at least for me.

    I did't think smart as* answers were welcome here. You help nobody and look like an arrogant j**k.

    It's 1:08 my time and I'm on hold with Apple Support speaking with Raymond, a supervisor.


    Raymond has no knowledge or history of any problem like this and has had me try a few things of which I previously had done but did again for him.


    Shut off automatic and go to set time manually. Shut iPad off.


    Here's a new one: Log on to a different wifi. He wanted me to go to McDonald's or somewhere with wifi and check the time on a different network.


    Luckily I grabbed a neighbors available wifi (never did that before) and there was no change.

    He offered to set up an appointment at the closest Apple store to have someone there take a look but it's a 50 minute round trip and I don't know that the 3 minute error is worth the trip. Perhaps on a day when I would be in the area anyway might work.



    Total time on the phone was 58 minutes. I'm still 3 minutes fast on the iPad.

    Incorrect time

    Clock on iPad is 20 minutes fast. Seems to be a typical.
    Apple. .?.?.?

    A few of us, including myself, have suffered this issue.

    It turned out to be an issue with syncing. Every time I synced with my pc the iPad picked up the pc clock time, which was about 5 mins fast.

    All is now nice :)
