Apple has been boasting about its iOS 6 Do Not Disturb function with flashy ads starring the Williams sisters, but the new feature has suffered a fault that will not be fixed until January 7.

The Do Not Disturb mode allows Apple iOS 6 users, be it on an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch, to silence in-coming calls, alerts, and notifications for a given period of time. But as the New Year clocked over, some users noticed that the Do Not Disturb function was not turning itself off, staying on past its scheduled end time.

Apple has said that the problem will be resolved after January 7 and recommends that before this time, users should manually turn the Do Not Disturb feature on or off.

Apple has not explained why it will take some time to fix the problem.
