    My iPad Air shows on the top black line Wednesday, September 12!

    According to my 100-year calendar, the next date like that would be in 2018 and then 2035!

    My Calendar shows the correct date and time and so do all apps.

    So what's causing this? How do I get read of it

    I have the latest software.

    Hi Wildfire...I don't have an answer to your question, but deleted your other post. I see that you posted again in the correct section...so hopefully it gets answered. Duplicates can be confusing for members to read and help...thanks for your understanding!

    Have you tired the old standbys - restart or reset the iPad?

    To do (apologies if you know):

    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, wait a bit, then hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears.

    If that doesn't help, try this last step...

    Reset: Hold both the power and home buttons until the screen goes dark and the Apple logo then appears (the slide to unlock screen may or may not appear). Once the logo appears, release the buttons. After a time, your homescreen will appear. Please note that it may take some time for the Apple logo to appear or for your homescreen to appear (or both). This is normal. Eventually, the homescreen will appear.

    Thanks for reminding me of Restart . I had tried Reset without success. Unfortunately Restart didn't solve the problem either. I even tried it without the Passcode.
    What would happen if I used General/Reset/Reset Home Screen Layout?

    The folders you created will disappear, and the apps you downloaded will fill the homescreens, supposedly not the way you put them.

    I'm just wondering where you see date and time. Is it on the lock screen, or in Notification Center? The bar at the top of the iPad only shows the time, not the date.

    Glad you pointed that out to me. There would be no guarantee that Wednesday, September 12 would disappear. Looks as if I'd better wait for another iOS update.

    Like Johanna said, the status bar does not normally show the date; only the time.

    Are you jailbroken? In which case you need to look at your tweaks, and whether they are up to date.

    You also say 'black' bar. In iOS 7, there is rarely a black bar; unless you are using an older app that has not been updated for iOS 7.

    If you can upload a screen shot that might help.

    Not jailbroken, running iOS 7.1.2
    The black bar shows to the left the signal strength with 5 dots and Verizon 3G. Then, in the center, it shows Wednesday, September 12. Above the day/date is a fairly small indicator of the correct present time. To the right it shows the battery icon with the amount of charge in front, like 50%.
    Btw the black bar appears on all screens with apps. However, once I open an app, the annoying day/date is not visible.

    How do I get a screen shot?

    Press Home and Power button at the same time. A shutter sound will indicate that you were successful. The screenshot can be found in the Photo app.

    Then open this site, tap "Upload a File" next to "Post Reply". Choose file, select the album, then the picture, and it will start loading.
