Didn't Wake Up on Time In the New Year? Blame Your iPhone

If, like me, your iPhone alarm clock didn't go off and you were late to catch your train/bus/automobile for work and/or other important life stuff, Apple's on it. Thousands of people reported on Sunday that their alarm clocks on their iPhone weren't going off after the New Year. Really Apple? Y2K was so ten years ago!

What kind of beast of burden fails in a New Year? Jeez!

"We're aware of an issue related to non-repeating alarms set for January 1 or 2," Apple spokeswoman Natalie Harrison stated. "Customers can set recurring alarms for those dates and all alarms will work properly beginning January 3." She clearly means Pacific Time because some of our iPhones failed to wake us up this morning too.

This problem has seemed to affect single alarm settings on iPhone 4s and earlier models with updated software. The iPhone alarm has previously had problems recognizing changes with daylight savings time.
