iOS Daylight Saving Time Bug Causes Europeans to Oversleep

Posted by · 8940 views · Translate

Europeans who slept in for work this morning may have a legitimate excuse. A bug in iOS 4.1 is causing alarms to go off an hour late.

The Daylight Saving Time bug was discovered a few weeks ago when New Zealand and Australia switched to daylight saving time. The bug caused reoccurring alarms to go off an hour early.

Unfortunately for European users who are ending daylight saving time the bug causes their alarms go off an hour late.

Daylight saving time ends in the United States and Canada on November 7th. If Apple doesn't provide a fix by then, be careful you don't sleep in!

Might have been a good idea to write in the articles how this only affects alarms to repeat, except if set to repeat every day that also works fine. So if you manually activate your alarms for each day or have one that repeats all days of the week you\'ll be fine

I have 2 iPhones a 2G (FW 3.1.3) and a 3G (FW 4.1) fortunately the 2G went off correctly but the 3G went off 1 hour later. i will need to add an alarm 1 hour earlier in the 3G to make it works property.

I never slept in but i noticed that if you change the time it still wont go off, You will have to delete your alarms and remake them for the right time of alarm to go off !

I\'m glad it\'s a bug I was about to restore my phone. Yeah we need a fix for this cause I can\'t be late I was so upset when my alarm went off at 5:30 vs 6:30 when I had it set this morning. I\'m glad I didnt update the wife\'s device she would of killed me.
