As daylight savings time has begun in other places around the world, such as in Australia and New Zealand and has ended in other countries, such as the United Kingdom, a software bug in Apple’s iPhone 4’s has been revealed.
In the U.K, they ended daylight savings over this past weekend. A story in today’s U.K publication the Telegraph says, "Although the time on the iPhone 4 automatically updated when the clocks went back at the weekend, it seems the alarm function didn’t, resulting in scores of people being woken an hour later than they had intended today.
"A similar bug affected iPhone 4 users in Australia and New Zealand when clocks switched from daylight saving time last month. The glitch could strike again next week when the United States adjusts its clocks to mark the start of winter."
The article says Apple has not commented on this glitch. But the story adds that here is the fix:
"iPhone 4 users can circumvent the alarm bug by deleting all alarms and creating new alarm alerts. Editing existing alarms will not resolve the problem."
The article does not say whether this glitch affects earlier versions of the iPhone.
