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.

  1. Tap the Settings icon on the Home screen.

  2. Tap General.
  3. Scroll down to the bottom of the General Settings list and tap Date & Time.

  4. 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.
  5. Turning Set Automatically on syncs the date and time with the Wi-Fi network or cellular network that the iPad is connected to.
  6. Tap the Time Zone button and then enter the name of your city, or a nearby city, to set the zone.
  7. To manually set the time, tap the date and time shown to bring up a set of controls underneath.
  8. 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.
