iPhone Alarm Clock Issue Reported – Temporary Fix
Reports from Europe suggest a bug in the iPhone’s alarm app caused it not to adjust to the end of Daylight Saving Time in that part of the world. According to large stream of frustration-filled tweets on the Twitter micro-blogging service, when the clock strikes midnight, one off alarms will cease to sing out.
You may remember that Apple had fixed the Daylight Saving Time bug in iOS 4.2.1. But it looks like the iPhone alarm bug is not limited only to iOS 4.2.1 as users are reporting the issue on iOS 4.1 and iOS 4.0.2 as well. We’re assuming that the issue will also affect iPod Touch users. 9to5Mac claims that the issue gets resolved after January 3rd, 2011 and can be avoided by setting the alarm as a recurring alarm.
In the mean time to avoid the issue you will need to set the alarm as a recurring alarm rather than a one time alarm by following the steps mentioned below:
How To Resolve iPhone Alarm Clock App Bug:
Launch Clock app
Tap the appropriate alarm
Set a repeat interval
