    Maybe they meant after the 7th in the states, get that 24hr clock working again. But it's the 8th here now, so . . . but still fairly early on the West Coast.

    Yey!!!!! Back in business!

    Switched it off and on again, and at 11pm (10 mins ago) it went to sleep without being told to.

    Oh, happy day!

    Haha, well, it took me a few days to figure out how to turn my iPhone off. At first I was convinced there simply was no off button... it was Apple... immortal (as long as it was charged). I found that odd.
    Then I figured out to hold down the button for a long time. And it let me turn it off!

    (Note: this is just what your comments reminded me of; that was a few years ago, when I first got it. My phone hasn't been misbehaving because it's an old one and because it's still the old OS. Perhaps I should update it; but then things like this would happen!)

    With the turning off, most people realise after the first few times of turning their apple products off and on, that you're not really meant to turn them off, just put them to sleep.

    It's a conspiracy, you see. With the iPhone 8, they will begin to invade our brains and use us as distributed supercomputers to process Apple corporate plans to take over the world! Of course if we turn the phones off, that would limit their taking-over-the-world-able-ness.

    Clearly, it's obvious to see that they're artificially making it take longer to turn them on and off. We should try and get this in the press, the FT, the Guardian, they whole lot. Right after they admit Watergate was an alien conspiracy.

    The people have a right to know!

    You're right about it taking a while to turn on or off... that's always confused me.

    It's not like turning off a pc, with apple products, it's full systems shutdown. They're designed to be put to sleep, so they don't bother making turning on faster. Plus, it's a full OS to load, so it would be hard to do it in a 9.58 sprint.

    You're right about it taking a while to turn on or off..
    You're saying the part about the Watergate is wrong? o.O
