How to Make the iPhone 5 Update Time Automatically
Turning on this feature will configure your iPhone 5 so that it automatically updates the time when you switch time zones, or when Daylight Savings Time occurs. This feature is usually turned on by default with most iPhones, so you should only need to turn it on if you had previously turned it off, or if you acquired your iPhone from someone that had turned it off. You can follow the steps below to make sure that your iphone 5 is set up to automatically update the time.
Step 1: Touch the Settings icon.
Step 2: Select the General option.
Step 3: Scroll down and touch the Date & Time option.
Step 4: Move the slider next to Set Automatically from the left to the right. When you see green shading around the slider button, your iPhone 5 is configured to automatically change the time when necessary.
