How Technology Makes Daylight Saving Time a Little Easier
"Image Credit: Olenka Sergienko / Pexels Ready or not, it's time to spring forward. Daylight Saving Time will begin Sunday, March 14 at 2:00 a.m., much to every parent's dismay. As if getting kids to sleep by their bedtime isn't hard enough already, now the sun will still be out when it's time for bed. Plus the rest of us will ""lose"" an hour of sleep. Cool. Advertisement Daylight Saving Time sucks for parents, but at least technology makes changing your clocks a lot easier, AKA it does it for you. Here's how. Smartphones You don't need to worry about changing the time on your smartphone, because just as the time updates when your travel from one time zone to another, it automatically changes at 2:00 a.m. on the 14th. Your alarms and calendar appointments will also update automatically. Advertisement Computers, laptops, and tablets Unless you run Microsoft Windows 10 on your computer (which might require a manual time change), the real-time clock on your computers, laptops, and tablets should automatically change like your smartphone. Smart home devices Most modern smart devices will automatically update their time. The best way to find out is to wait until Sunday morning. If the time hasn't changed, manually make the change. If you aren't sure how to do it, read the manual if you have it. If not, try Googling instructions. Advertisement Vehicles If you have a fancy shmancy car that has a satellite-linked navigation system, or if you have an embedded phone, Apple Car Play, or Android Auto, the clocks should automatically update. But the average vehicle requires you to manually change the time. You know, like with your hands. So that's annoying, but since most other digital clocks in your life are probably automatic, a quick tap of a button should be okay. Advertisement"
