Some of you know the term Daylight Saving, and some must be searching this term for the first time. Whichever the reason, clicking on our link has definitely brought you to the right place. This article will guide you through the details of what ‘Daylight Saving’ is and how it will be effective on your device.
Daylight Saving Time (DST) is the practice of advancing the clocks by one hour from Standard Time in the summer and then reverting to Standard Time in the fall.
The fundamental concept is that putting the clocks forward one hour in the spring allows us to make better use of natural light during summer evenings. Likewise, changing the clocks back one hour in the fall allows us to make better use of natural daylight during winter mornings.
So is Daylight Saving Time Automatic for your Mac?
The answer is yes. Officially, the time has come to move the date and time forward by an hour in March 2022 following Daylight Saving Time. Daylight Saving Time is supposed to begin at 2:00 a.m. in the United States on Sunday, March 13, and expires at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday, November 6, 2022. All times are in Eastern Time.
So, as long as your Date & Time options are right, Apple will take care of setting the time on your Macs. To change the date and time,
On MacOS Ventura
1. Go to the Apple Logo from top menu > System Settings.
2. Next, Click on General > Date & Time.
3. Scroll into the right section, Choose Set the date and time automatically or manually as option. and Select “Set time and date automatically“.
4. in the same way, “Set time zone automatically using your current location” to auto-identify the Daylight saving time for your region.
For earlier macOS, follow the steps below.
On MacOS Monterey & Earlier
Go to the Apple logo menu, System Preferences, then Date & Time. You’ll notice a lock in the corner of your Mac if it’s a recent model. If that’s the case, click it and type in your admin password.
Check the “Set date and time automatically” option in the Date & Time preference panel’s Date & Time section. The choice on the right should be the one that is closest to your current location. The date and time are received from the internet in this manner. Check the Time Zone settings while you’re in there. You will never have to set the time with these settings manually. Apple will take care of it.
Now, you must be wondering if
Windows will automatically change for daylight saving in 2022?

Needless to say, if you have issues with your Windows changing to daylight saving automatically, make sure that the Daylight Saving option is turned on in the Time and Language section in the Settings.
