How was everyone spending the Golden Week in the past many days? A new era, “Reiwa,” was implemented on May 1 during Golden Week. In the first place, the country that uses the era is a local specification that only Japan is, but I tried to check whether the OS of the smartphone corresponds to the new era, which is a new “Reiwa”.
Comparison of each display
“Japanese calendar” display on Android OS
Unfortunately there is no setting to make era notation in the OS itself, and only the year display is supported. Only the calendar display will be displayed on the default calendar etc.
“Japanese calendar” display on iOS such as iPhone, iPad
iOS can display Japanese calendar from settings. By setting “Settings”-“General”-“Language and region”-“Calendal system”-“Japanese calendar”, standard calendars, memos, photos, e-mails etc. will be changed to Japanese calendar display.
Select “Language and Region”.
Check “Japanese Calendar”. Change to Japanese calendar display completed. The date part is displayed in Japanese calendar when you start various applications of iPhone.
In this way, the calendar display is displayed, but unfortunately it is not yet included in iOS, and I think that it will be compatible with “Rekazu” notation in the update that will be supported in the near future. . If you are using Japanese calendar notation, let’s endure for a while.
However, there was a feature that corresponds to the new era issue “Reiwa” on iOS. That’s Siri.
Since Siri can be supported by server-side updates, I think that I was able to respond quickly. As of May 8, the new system update has not yet been released. Since the terminal side can not cope without updating the era data, I will try to use it in the “Japanese calendar” display for a while until it is displayed in the new version.
※ May 14, 2019 postscript
Provision of iOS 12.3 has started. As a result, the new era of Japanese calendar “Reiwa” has been added.
