Twice a year, the clocks change for many countries in the northern and southern hemisphere. While countries located near the equator don’t see much difference to the hours of daylight year round, nations far north or far south experience huge changes to hours of sunlight depending on what time of year it is.
When do the clocks change in October?
The clocks always change on the last Sunday of October.
This means this year, the clocks will go back on Sunday, October 25.
The change happens at 2am and signals the end of Daylight Saving Time, also known as BST in the UK.

Do clocks change automatically?
If you have an iPhone, iPad and Mac the clocks will automatically change on these devices.
The same goes for smartphones and network operators, who should change the time for you so you won’t have to do anything.
You should, however, double check to see if you have automatic updates set to your phone on your settings for date and time.
