iPhone alarm bug: now it's the UK's turn

My phone forgot to wake me up

3 Big data security analytics techniques

Reports from UK readers have been flooding in - OK trickling in - that their iPhone alarms woke them up an hour late today. In other words their phones ignored the switchover to GMT on the early hours of Sunday morning.

Oh well - that's another hour to shake off the Halloween booze.

This alarm quirk lies in the iPhone calendar and recurring alarms, rather than the system clock, and surfaced last month when Australia and New Zealand switched to daylight savings.

Users can fix their alarms simply enough, by going to Time|Date, turning "Set Automatically" OFF, wiping recurring alarms and re-entering their alarms.

A bit of pain, but something you only have to to do twice a year… unless of course, Apple gets its act together before the end of March, when Northern Hemisphere moves once again to summer time. We think it will.

There is a discussion about the iOS4 Alarm Clock on Apple forums.
