Dates based on region

When I set my iPhones region to Saudi Arabia the dates on iMDB converts to Islamic calendar! How can I make it on Gregorian calendar without changing the region?

Hi Abdullah,

I have investigated this and it appears that the Islamic calendar is hard coded to the specific Saudi Arabia region, so you will want be able to interchange the dates to display that of the Gregorian calendar instead. If you prefer a different calendar to be displayed you are welcome to attempt to change the the region to that of a neighboring area/country to see if any show that of Gregorian calendar.

Hi kurt,

Right now my iPhone is set to UK region but thats not right it affects other services, why isn't the caldndar option isn't from the app?

Hi Abdullah,

Changing the calendar settings separately is just not currently a manual setting available in the app separate from the region selection. That being said, I'll change this thread to an idea so that our technical teams can review this in consideration for future application updates.
