iPhone Alarm Bug Problem – Solution.
Have you been waking up late in the mornings because of the iPhone alarm going off an hour late? (Now, there’s a good excuse for a lie in.) There have been lots of complaints on Twitter and assorted websites about you late risers the last couple of days. I don’t know how you all manage with just one alarm anyway – I have to have at least two!
I use this 🙂
After the first Monday morning with no alarm, there was a work-around given from various sources to delete all alarms set before the Daylight Saving Time change and reset them but after hearing complaints of lateness again today, I’m guessing that work-around didn’t work.
Did it work for you? Please let us know.
It appears that there is no solution as such until Apple release and an update or a patch to iOS4.1 Apparently though it doesn’t seem that this will happen as its rumoured iOS4.2 is due for general realise very soon and I read that Apple are saying the fix is there so we will just have to wait for iOS4.2
Perhaps it will out by next week when the clocks in America are set back, if not USA you have been warned. 🙂
What you can do however is simply set your alarm an hour earlier and to make sure you are not late for work again tomorrow, I’d just have a backup alarm as well.
Evidently there is a new workaround, (given to me by an iphone alarm user). If you set your alarms to Every Day rather than selected days, the alarm will go off at the right time.
Please let me know if this works for you. Thanks.
