A couple of strange observations on the calendar in Ios
- Search only works within +/- one year from current date
- It is not only year 10000 safe, you can actually scroll way beyond year 100000 🙂
- You can scroll back in time even to BC, though strange bugs appears much before that
- Moving an appointment has some (academic) issues in the date selector
Yet another bug in Ios… you can only search +/- one year.
Try this simple test:
1) Create a new post in the calender, one year and one day ago – you can not search it.
2) Open the month manually, open the day, edit it, and move it forwards two days – now it can be found…
3) Move it forward to one year and one day ahead from now – you can not search it
4) Move it back two days – you can search it again.
Year 100000 safe
You can scroll the calendar forwards a VERY long time. I stopped trying at year 142857 *LOL*
I forgot to try to add an event at that late year, but checked beyond year 10000, and events are stored – though hard to find again due to the above bug.
This is certainly optimistic. I personally hope that Ios is buried and forgotten within ten year at the most…
Backwards event possible to a large extent
You can use the calendar backwards, though strange things happen when you go beyond 1895
When you scroll further backwards strange things are displayed … Decembers are missing or replacing Januaries, and the year-stamp is omitted. You can see the year clicking a month – though without BC/AC – and with F-up month content…
(As far as I can see the Gregorian calendar is assumed before it was invented)
On event moving
There are a couple of curious -though rather academic- bugs: If you try to move an event more than roughly 13½ years, the scroll ends, and you can either double-tap the end to be able to scroll further, OR if you try to swipe beyond the end, or select anything the event-date jumps about 13½ year each time – I think it is 5000 days, but did not check accurately)
