In the UK last week iPhone 4 users noted a bug with their alarms caused by the daylight savings time changed. It seems this week the US will suffer a similar problem with their phone’s causing much upset, unrest and people getting up late – at least they might some extra sleep! Thankfully there is a simple fix (endorsed by Apple).
1. Simply delete all current alarms from your iPhone 4.
2. Set a one time alarm with repeat OFF for Monday morning
3. After Monday morning set up a new repeat alarm as usual.
There will be a permanent fix in the soon to be released update to OS 4.2. I suspect this will come early to mid December; the main reason for this is to allow developers to update their apps to be compatible with 4.2.
The fix above is a bit cumbersome and almost laughable but it will do the trick ensuring you are not late for work. Like most things this could have been avoided with a simple update from Apple but hey – at least the US aren’t the first to suffer the bug.
Personally I stick with my old clock radio – no bugs in that!
Do you rely on the iPhone 4 to wake you up?
