Mac, iOS glitch assigns wrong holidays in official Calendar app

updated 01:22 pm EDT, Mon July 7, 2014

US, UK, and Russia apparently immune

Over the weekend, a number of iOS and OS X users have started reporting glitches with Apple's official Calendar app. Affected people will see holidays from other regions appearing on their personal calendar, such as UK holidays in Ireland, or Mexican, Canadian, and even Hong Kong holidays in Lithuania. Some countries appear to be immune to the bug, including the US, the UK, and Russia.

Apple has acknowledged the issue and is said to be working on a fix for a future version of iOS. In OS X, it may be possible to eliminate the problem by making sure the currency used is set to the local format.

    Apple can be weird. My stock US calendar has includes the birthdays of only two Presidents, George Washington and John Kennedy. Washington I can understand, he was our first. But why Kennedy? Historians rate him rather poorly and none would rank him above FDR or Abraham Lincoln, neither of which is included. I can only image that somewhere in the bowels of Apple is a JFK fan who sneaked his listing in when no one else was looking. Apple's Clock app for the iPad is similarly weird, listing obscure towns with only a few thousand people not not listing a single person in Tim Cook's home state of Alabama. And note too that U.S. cities are listed without their states. Like I said, sometimes Apple can be really weird.
