iPhone Bug: Alarm Clock Problem – Why You Should Wait

By Peter Chubb - Nov 4, 2010

Since the UK moved to DST (Daylight Saving Time) on Sunday morning, iPhone owners have been up in arms over the alarm clock problem. A number of our readers had given advice on how to solve this bug – but none of them worked for me. However, Alan Ng reported this morning that Apple has an official fix for this problem until iOS 4.2 is released.

However, having read over the fix I feel that we should wait for iOS 4.2 to fix the issue for us. I have my alarm set on repeat for each morning, so having to delete this and set each day individually will be a pain – I know that I am not the only one thinking this?

I still cannot believe that this issue has come about when to my knowledge, has never happened before? This does show that iOS 4.1 still has a few bugs in it. However, this bug would have been hard for Apple to notice, as DST has only just happened in the UK, and will change over in the U.S. this weekend.

I cannot see the problem with having your alarm set for one-hour earlier until Apple release iOS 4.2, which could be on November 7th, Monday. What have you done to solve this iPhone alarm issue?
