Do Not Disturb issues reported as ad debuts

Some iOS 6 users have reported that Apple’s Do Not Disturb feature wasn’t automatically turned off by their devices on New Year’s Day. Though this hasn’t been a problem for every user, manually disabling and re-enabling Do Not Disturb is a quick fix for those having issues. A new year’s bug is nothing new for iOS users — in 2011, for instance, alarms failed to go off after being set on iOS devices.

Ironically, Apple debuted a new television ad yesterday promoting its Do Not Disturb feature, the same day the bug affected users. It stars Venus and Serena Williams, who are playing ping pong against the narrator in a dream — a dream that continues due to Apple’s Do Not Disturb feature.

Updated: Apple has acknowledged the bug on its support site. It announced the Do Not Disturb feature will “resume normal functionality after January 7, 2013.” Before that, Apple recommends turning the feature on or off manually.

My phone is stuck in Do Not Disturb mode.  I have tried all the fixes that I have seen (turn the feature off/on, change the schedule, power cycle the phone), but if I have the feature turned on, the phone is in Do Not Disturb mode.
