  • Awesomely simple...thanks! When dealing with multi-national team members they speak weeks natively so this is a real help...never noticed it!

  • Week numbers feature in IOS Calendar is great! However, there is a difference between US and EU counting of weeks (in EU the 1st week of the year is the first one, which contains Thursday, which means that week 20 - as shown by my IOS 8.3 - is actually week 19 in EU). Therefore, if US (or non EU) users will discuss due dates wit European partners based on calendar weeks, there may come to misunderstandings with a discrepancy of one week (7 days)!! Is this issue perhaps tackled in IOS 9.x, already?
