Check if the Time and Date is set to automatic on the IOS

Captura de Tela 2022-03-09 às 14.34.31

Hi guys.
I’m wanting to check if the time and date is in automatic on ios. I found some plugins made for ios I tried to use them more without success.
I also tried to use the diagnostic cordova plugin but it doesn’t check this Date and Time issue if it is activated or deactivated.
Here are the links I found and tried to do.

GitHub - andrerds/cordova-plugin-time-check: Plugin de checagem de tempo - Cordova (in use)
GitHub - 123erfasst/cordova-plugin-timesettings: 123Erfasst Plugin um zu erzwingen dass der Benutzer Automatische Zeit aktiviert hat

If anyone can help me, a solution, I would be grateful.

Hi, me again!
Friends, I still haven’t found a solution to this problem, someone could help me!
On android it’s working beautiful, what I’m looking for is to check if the time zone is on automatic, I saw that Apple doesn’t expose this info. ! please if anyone can shed some light at the end of the tunnel hehe.

Your solution is to create your own plugin using capacitor.


I like @Hills90210 suggestion. :grinning:

Our Engineering team is not aware of a way to do this using pure JS. Perhaps you could provide more details around your use case so we can better understand what functionality you are trying to accomplish?

Hey, my idea was to create a plugin (in cordova) project is using cordova yet. We will be migrating soon.
The problem that I didn’t find a way to get the information of the automatic timeZone is enabled or not.

Hey, what I’m trying to do is:
Check whether automatic timeZone is enabled or not on iphone devices. On Android it’s working wonderfully, but on iPhone I can’t see a way of the automatic timezone setting is enabled or disabled. :disappointed_relieved:

I dont believe iOS exposes this kind of information via native code, so it’s probably not possible. Though I dont know why this kind of information would be useful
