How to Add a City to the iPhone Clock App

If you often interact with people that live in other parts of the world, knowing what time it is for them can be an important consideration. For example, you may not want to call someone if it’s the middle of the night.

While you may be able to figure out the current time in your head, there may be situations where you don’t remember if that city is a two or three hour time difference. This can be even more confusing if a city doesn’t observe daylight savings time, and is sometimes more or fewer hours difference from your location. Our tutorial below will show you how to add a city to the iPhone’s Clock app so that you have a quick reference to let you know the current time in a particular city.
