Now you can find a list of default time zone clocks or the ones which you have added manually. Tap on the + icon beside the available clocks to add a new clock. Now enter a junk text (say, some random text) in the text field of Choose a City modal. Long tap on the text to find the Select options.

Now you can observe a black background flickering with distortions behind the Choose a City modal for few seconds. This bug was observed on most of the iPad’s like iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 4 etc. and few models of iPhone like iPhone 5S and doesn’t exist with latest models of iPhone like iPhone 6 Plus.

Even though this scenario was rarely used but people may get worried when it happens on their device on of a sudden. This is a minor bug that was observed mostly on Apple iPad’s so you need not worry when you observe this on your iPad or iPhone. Simply select the text and carry out your actions as usual or Cancel the modal if you do not want to carry out any operation.
