Daylight Saving Time officially ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday, November 6, so you can either change your clocks then or simply set them back an hour before you go to bed on Saturday night. The phrase to help you remember is “spring forward, fall back,” as in turn your clocks forward one hour in the spring and turn your clocks back one hour in the fall.

If you’re worried about your cell phone and any possible wake-up alarms on Sunday morning, don’t be — if a cell phone is on WIFI or data, it will automatically change over at 2 a.m. local time.

According to Android Central, “you shouldn’t have to do a thing.”

“We’ve got some good news here — you shouldn’t have to do a thing! Unless you went into your phone’s settings and switched away from the automatic network time (in which case you already know what to do), you won’t have to do anything. Your Android phone will automatically check the network for the correct date and time and switch on its own overnight, changing the system time so that things like calendars and alarms will still be correct,” says the Android Central website.

If you’re worried about your phone being turned off, don’t be — Android Central also says that your phone “correct to Daylight Saving Time once it is turned on and reconnects to your cellular network.”

Is Daylight Saving Time Going Away After 2022?

On March 16, 2022, the U.S. Senate voted on the Sunshine Protection Act, which would make Daylight Saving Time permanent starting in 2023. It passed by unanimous consent. However, the U.S. House of Representatives has not yet voted on it and there’s no word as to whether they will, so right now, the act is stuck in legislative purgatory.

According to the text of the bill, the act would let states be exempt from the Uniform Time Act of 1966, which is what established daylight saving time. It is supposed to take effect on November 5, 2023, but that is only if it passes the House and is then signed into law by President Biden.

Most states in the U.S. observe Daylight Saving Time, but if you live in Hawaii or Arizona, you are off the hook. According to TIME, Arizona stopped observing Daylight Saving Time in 1968 — though the Navajo Nation reservation does observe daylight saving time because it is in Arizona but also in Utah and New Mexico, which do observe DST, so the nation has chosen to switch its clocks along with those states.

Hawaii stopped observing Daylight Saving Time in 1967 because it is so small and so close to the equator that its sunrise and sunset are basically the same year-round, so there really is no point in observing DST.

American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands also do not observe Daylight Saving Time. In fact, it is mostly only observed in the United States, Europe and parts of Australia. And that may be changing soon.

More states are looking to follow in Arizona and Hawaii’s footsteps. According to USA Today, in the past four years, 19 states have enacted legislation to observe Daylight Saving Time year-round and not change their clocks at all. The states include Alabama, Arkansas, California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Louisiana, Maine, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.

But changing would require a change in federal law, so for now, most states are stuck with changing their clocks twice a year. Future Daylight Saving Time dates are as follows: In 2023, it starts on March 12 and ends on November 5; in 2024, it starts on March 10 and ends on November 3; and in 2025, it starts on March 9 and ends on November 2.
