Why does the week start on Sunday instead of Monday? Personally, I’ve always preferred my week to start on a Monday instead of Sunday as it just made more sense to me. I work Monday to Friday, and the last two days are my days to relax before I started the week again.

Changing the day your week starts on your iPhone, iPad and iPod as well as your Mac is really easy,here’s how.
