I happen to be in Time Zone (UTC+12) and the bug which results in Birthdays showing on the wrong day in Calendar still seems to be there.

The iMessage bug is annoying. On a Mac it often places conversations out of order thereby undermining the whole start a conversation on one device and end it on another. The bug doesn’t seem to effect the iPhone. Hope this is fixed.
