Apple releases Daylight Saving Time Updates (10.4 Tiger and 10.3 Panther)

Apple today released Daylight Saving Time Updates for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger and 10.3 Panther.

This update addresses recent changes in the way Daylight Saving Time will be observed in the U.S. and Canada beginning in March 2007 and includes the latest time zone information for the rest of the world.

On August 8, 2005, President George W. Bush signed the Energy Policy Act of 2005. This Act changed the time change dates for Daylight Saving Time in the United States. Beginning in 2007, Daylight Saving Time will begin on the second Sunday in March and end the first Sunday in November.

Apple’s Daylight Saving Time Updates are available via Software Update and also as standalone installers:

• Daylight Saving Time Update (Tiger):
• Daylight Saving Time Update (Panther):


  1. Only Congress, the stupidest 535 people on the planet, would have passed this act. Those of us in the northern tier of states are just now beginning to have morning light when our kids go to school and this will set us back to darkness quickly again far too early. Why don’t they try to solve real problems. I had to patch 16 computers at work today for this already, now on to my 4 Macs.

  2. If they keep doing this, there won’t be any night left, and animals and plants that need darkness to survive will be the first to go.

    The few remaining drive-in movie theaters will be put out of business and global warming will increase because the sun will never go down.

    It’s a plot by the Unilluminati.

  3. Anyone that complains about this law is a moron. Daylight Savings Time is a good thing. Even the libbie treehuggers are happy with it because it saves a lot of energy usage. It’s a win-win for everyone, except for those that are too lazy to run a simple software update at least anyway…
