Setting Your Date and Time
You can set the date, time and time zone for your iPad and even choose whether to display the time in 12- or 24-hour mode.
Tap the Settings icon on the Home screen.
- Tap General.
Scroll down to the bottom of the General Settings list and tap Date & Time.
- Turn the 24-Hour Time switch on to show the time in 24-hour format (military time). Turn it off to revert to 12-hour format.
- Turning Set Automatically on syncs the date and time with the Wi-Fi network or cellular network that the iPad is connected to.
- Tap the Time Zone button and then enter the name of your city, or a nearby city, to set the zone.
- To manually set the time, tap the date and time shown to bring up a set of controls underneath.
The controls are four “wheels” that you can spin by dragging up and down. You can set the day, hour, minute, and AM or PM.
