iPhone Alarm Bug Fails to Resolve Itself

Article Comments  27  

Jan 3, 2011, 12:29 PM   by Eric M. Zeman   @phonescooper

A glitch in the iPhone software that started on January 1, 2011, prevents non-repeating alarms from functioning properly. The alarms fail to go off. In an email sent to Engadget, Apple said, "We're aware of an issue related to non repeating alarms set for January 1 or 2. Customers can set recurring alarms for those dates and all alarms will work properly beginning January 3." The problem had not been resolved as of January 3, however, and users across the internet have indicated that their iPhone alarms still aren't functioning. Apple hasn't said if or when a fix for the problem will be offered.
