Error description

  • Starting with iOS 9 the device no longer includes start/end
    times or timezone on updates if the update does not change the
    times or timezone. Traveler defaults timezone to system timezone
    of Traveler server if timezone info is not present from the
    device. This may result
    in timezone of existing events getting changed when device sends
    an update and the system timezone rules differ from the
    existing events timezone rules.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • In Apple iOS 9.x the native Apple Calendar app stopped sending
    the timezone for a calendar update when the date and time were
    not changed.  This was unexpected and the IBM Traveler server
    could default the timezone to that of the server in this
    scenario.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The IBM Traveler server has been updated to recognize this
    change in behavior of the Apple Calendar application and
    correctly not use the system timezone for a Calendar update.
    

Temporary fix
