Apple Acknowledges Daylight Saving Bug

Posted by · 6858 views · Translate

Apple has posted a support document acknowledging an issue with repeating alarms after the daylight saving time change.

In some regions, shortly before or after the daylight saving time (DST) change, repeating alarms created in the Clock app may work incorrectly.

Products Affected
iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (3rd generation), iPhone 3G, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch (2nd generation)

To resolve this behavior for existing alarms, set the repeat interval to Never. You will need to reset these alarms for each day you need them.

After November 7th, 2010, you can set your alarms to repeat again.

Why not simply put alarm for an hour late with repeat on (till Nov 7th). Who the **** wants to set daily an alarm for next morning when iPhone is being used for morning alarm!

Brilliant --- Signal issues - proximity sensor problems - faulty camera and now it cant do the time correctly. Best £600 I ever spent NOT

\"reset\" means what exactly? Delete and make a new one or turn off/on. Why couldn\'t they just be 100% clear? The bug is only active until Nov. 7th then? that\'s weird.

I guess there is some relation with DST in USA.. Some trouble with (hardcoded) variable about DST or so I think..
