    I have a new mini iPad. I see that in the "Week View", Sunday 30 March 2014 is not visible.
    Similarly Sunday 29 March 2015; Sunday 27 March 2016; Sunday 26 March 2017; etc etc
    The Apple "chat" people got me to backup and re-install the iOS sofware to no avail. We even tried altering various settings.
    It seems to be only one day in the 365, and always the last Sunday in March.
    Has anyone else noticed this problem? And are there any suggestions in correcting this phenomenon?
    I AM able to see that Sunday only in the "Day View".

    Hi Rufels and welcome to the forum. That seems to be a problem with the Calendar app that rears its head now and again. You might like to check if you have an all day event for April 1st. Change the event from an all day one to say a particular hour or just delete it. That has been known to fix the problem. Any good?

    Hi, welcome to iPF!

    Sunday, March 30, appears on both my iPads in week view, so do all the last Sundays in March until 2020, so I don't face this problem.
    I have no other suggestions for you than the usual fixes: resetting, restarting and force closing apps. Sorry if you've already done that!

    Here's how to perform these:
    Restart: turn off your iPad, wait for a few minutes, turn it on again.
    Force close apps in iOS 7: double tap Home button or four/five finger slide to show the multitask bar. Slide the thumbnails (pictures) above the app icons toward the top of the screen.
    Reset: press and hold Home and Power button simultaneously until the Apple logo appears. Release both and let the iPad power up on it's own.

    Ah, the April 1st bug. I forgot about that. You'd think they would have fixed that with iOS 7. *sigh*

    Though, if it's only showing up in week view something has changed.

    And yes, that's a real bug. We're not playing an early April Fools joke; though one wonders if some Apple engineer isn't snickering at his (hopefully) soon to be empty desk.


    Edit: Looking at the OP's screen shot, it does not look like there are any All Day appointments for the 1st. So it's probably something else.

    It was different last year. The app crashed when trying to view March 2013. The day wasn't missing, afaik. April 1 was Easter Monday.

    What for? It seems to me you remember everything quite clearly.

    Oops, that screen shot went over my head by this >< much...no all day appointments there of course. It's just surprising that the bug still shows up in iOS 7.0.4 when we were talking about it in iOS 6xx. Surely Apple must know about it. You may be right tp, about that April Tomfoolery;)

    Thanks - did not work.

    Thanks for the suggestion - but I do not have anything on 1 April. In any case, this feature happens in every year . . .

    Did you try resetting and restarting your iPad?
