There is nothing left for the second 2023 time change and with this, different doubts arise again. Among them, “is my phone going to change the time on its own?” So that you don’t have problems, there is a very simple way to know if it will change automatically during the early hours of October 28 to 29. This way you won’t have to do it manually on your phone.


At 03:00 it will be 02:00 hours. And the second time change will occur this morning, that is, when passing from Saturday to Sunday. The good thing is that, with technology, you wouldn’t have to worry about anything, since devices like cell phones adjust the time on their own. But, if you are afraid that it will not be changed, you just have to see if you have this setting activated on your smartphone.

Generally, you shouldn’t have any problems. And all because smartphones usually have this necessary function activated by default so that the time is changed automatically without users having to do it manually.

  • Go to phone settings.
  • Go to the tab System (may vary depending on the customization layer).
  • Tap on Date and Time.
