Apple iPhone Update Removes Easter from Calendar

Latest news

    Apple’s recent update for the iPhone has removed Easter Sunday from some users’ calendars, prompting consumer complaints.

    While the previous update displayed both Easter Sunday and April Fool’s Day on April 1, Easter Sunday was removed for some users on their iCal calendars following the latest update.

    “Easter Sunday shows up on calendars for iPhone users running versions 11.2.2 of Apple’s iOS operating system, but not some users of 11.2.5, which is the latest version of the OS. However, one user said Easter showed in their calendar,” reported Fox News. “The default setting on iOS devices is for U.S. holidays, which shows holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas and Independence Day. However, there is an option to add Alternate Calendars, including Chinese, Hebrew and Islamic. But Christian is absent from this list on iOS 11.2.5.”

    Several users complained about the disappearance of Easter Sunday from their calendars on Apple’s forums.

    “How come Easter isn’t showing up on my calander [sic] but all the other holidays are?” complained one user, while another claimed Apple support informed them that the holiday had been removed intentionally.

    “All other Holidays, including ‘religious’ holidays, are included on the US Holidays calendar, but not Good Friday or Easter,” declared the user. “I thought, well, April Fool’s day is listed and it falls on the same day as Easter this year, maybe it was just a glitch and slipped through the cracks. I then followed up on the Apple Forum for an answer and I tried the suggestions to include a different US Holidays calendar. To no avail.”

    “I then called Apple, the first service rep I spoke with was sorta rude and dismissive but she forwarded me to someone who has been very helpful,” they continued, adding, “He had not been aware of the omission and sent a service inquiry. He phoned me back and sadly to him, informed me the response he received was, the calendar is as it should be and Apple decided to omit Good Friday and Easter from the US Holiday Calendar which is supplied on its products. This makes absolutely no sense.”
