iPhone owners in the US should be aware of iOS alarm clock glitch this Monday morning

Sat, Nov 6, 2010


Daylight Savings Time is upon us, and if you’re an iPhone owner in the US you should be cognizant of an iPhone alarm bug that might cause you to oversleep come Monday morning.

CNN reports:

A glitch in the iPhone’s operating system will cause recurring weekday alarms not to ring on time on Monday morning because of the end of Daylight Saving Time, which occurs at 2 a.m. on Sunday in the United States.

The phone’s alarm app doesn’t recognize the time change and will ring an hour late if users don’t go into the program and manually reset the alarms.

Users who depend on the iPhone to wake them up should create one-time alarms specifically for Monday morning, said Apple spokeswoman Natalie Harrison.

And if ya don’t know, now ya know.
