Part 1: Why Is My Android Phone Showing The Wrong Time?

You might be having big issues if your android phone is not showing the correct time, you might be missing your alarms that you needed to go off, and you might miss important meetings because of the incorrect time on Android phones. We understand how suffocating it is.

The most probable and common reason for this problem is that the time zone is incorrect, either because you manually set it incorrectly. When you have set the wrong time zone on your phone, even if the automatic time toggle is operational and set correctly, it will display the incorrect time.

If you ever face a problem with your iPhone or your iPad not showing the time then instead of panicking and worrying. There's no need to worry as we are here to bring you the fixes. For more details, you can move to "How to Fix iPhone or iPad Showing Wrong Time and Date".
