Good day everyone.

I apologize if this has been discussed (and solved hopefully!). Search didn't return anything...

In my calendar, I see the events with a time but then also another time - the GMT time zone. Quite confusing to me...

I have tried adding time zone support - no luck. Tried adding the correct time zone to my icloud account - no luck. Tried not having time zone support - no luck. Am I missing something?

Is there a way to disable to GMT or even change it to EST (Toronto)?

iPhone 6 + on IOS 8.1.1
Thanks.

I recommend doing a search on the web for "calendar gmt iOS 8". I've found a bunch of links. Some seem to think it's related to exchange settings.
YMMV

Have the same problem, it's a bug in the latest update. Called Apple Support and they are aware of the issue and their exact words to me were "we are working hard with Google to find a Fix for this problem" Just hope it's fast because it sure is irritating.

I found this. If it's what you call Support, then you have tried it.
Check Settings>; Mail, Contacts, Canedar>scroll to Calendar section... See if Time Zone Override is on or off... On will force to a selected time zone... Off will default to time zone of current location...

Set the override as well. Still have this issue. It's quite annoying. I use my calendar and rely on it. I find I have to double check the times. If I re-enter the appointment, it will get rid of the GMT time, but I don't know if the time is correct after a couple days. I'd like it to just work. Any news of a fix on the horizon? Any fix to the Air Drop glitch either?

The override should be off. Is yours on? Try adding a new Calandar event after you turn it off. Are you syncing through iCloud, Gmail or Exchange?
