2010 Fall Daylight Savings Time: US iPhone Users – Read Before Change

By Peter Chubb - Nov 6, 2010

On Sunday at 2 Am the U.S will move their clocks back one hour, which means that they will no longer be on daylight saving time. There are those of you who wonder why we still do this, and I am one of them. There are a number of things that we need to remember, but iPhone owners need to be extra careful.

Since the clocks started going back in other parts of the world iPhone users have been experiencing an issue with their alarm. All alarm times that were set have been going off one-hour later, which we discussed in a recent post. Apple has come up with a fix until iOS 4.2 is released, which is said to fully resolve the issue.

For those of you who do not know, I think the easiest solution for now is to just set your alarm one-hour earlier – so if you want to get up at 7AM, set your alarm for 6AM. I have been doing this all week and is much easier than what Apple suggests.

By now most of our electronic items in the home automatically change time, but there are some that do not. Luckily this happens on a Sunday, so many of you do not have to worry about getting up for work. Lets just hope retail store employees do not have an iPhone, as there is a possibility that the likes of Walmart, Target and other stores could be short on workers for the first hour of opening.

How have you resolved this iPhone alarm issue?
