Apple coughs to time zone problems

Now that the Americans are going to be hit

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Having upset the schedule of New Zealanders, Australians and Europeans, Apple has now admitted that iOS has a problem with summer time, three days before the Americans get inconvenienced.

A new support document, picked up by Apple Insider, admits that iOS version 4.1 screws up repeating alarms during the switch from daylight savings time, and recommends switching off repeating alarms until next week when Americans will have completed the switch.

"In some regions, shortly before or after the daylight saving time (DST) change, repeating alarms created in the Clock app may work incorrectly," the Apple Support document explains, suggesting that users switch off their repeating alarms before the change and then turn them back on again afterwards.

Useful advice - but too late for most of the world which has been pushing the clocks back over the last few weeks, with associated iPhone-induced chaos. But it's nice to know that once a problem affects those living in Cupertino Apple is quick to react, even if it reminds us just how important we are. ®
