    iPhone users beware!

    Ciara O'Brien

    Just a quick post to flag this. If you rely on your iPhone as an alarm clock, you might have noticed it’s not working as it should.

    A bug appears to have knocked out one-off alarms. Of course, most people weren’t aware of the issue until it was too late. Angry users are complaining on Apple’s discussion boards about the flaw, which even affects devices running the latest software.

    The way around it at the moment is to set recurring alarms. Apparently setting the date forward to January 3rd also kills the bug. Not much good to those who were running late this morning, but should keep you on time until Apple fixes the bug, or we actually get to January 3rd – more likely the latter.

      the weekend. Who cares!?

    • Not everyone was so lucky! Missed flights and late to work were a couple of casualties among a few people I know.

      People should be more angry at themselves that they have forced themselves to over-rely on one device to do everything for them.
      My bedside alarm clock worked perfectly that day.
