Currently, many time-keeping devices typically will sync up to the adjusted time correctly with no issues like phones and computers. However, some items will need you to manually adjust like car clocks, wall clocks, oven clocks, etc.


But, didn’t Governor Kay Ivey sign a bill to make it Daylight Savings Time year-round?

Until the bill is passed be sure you check your manual time device on Sunday when you wake up to ensure you are on the right time sequence.
