The clocks moving forward an hour is a relatively simple concept for most people to adapt to, and does not usually impact too greatly on their working day, however for some people who own iPhones getting up for work this morning was not as easy as it should have been thanks to yet another alarm clock glitch.
In the UK this weekend the clocks went forward an hour, an article posted by the BBC tells us that some people’siPhone alarms failed to go off at the right time this morning, we noticed a massive reaction in Twitter and wonder if people are getting sick of the seemingly never-ending alarm-related iPhone problems.
The same problem was found in the U.S last November when the change was made from Daylight Savings Time. The implications of this are quite important, especially in the business world where time deadlines are important. If a mobile device can not handle simple methods of keeping and changing time, should we consider switching to Android?
The irony is, we call these mobile devices “smartphones” yet Apple‘s smartphones seem incapable of such a basic task, we heard no reports of Windows Phone 7 or Android-based smartphone being affected, so how come’s iOS always seems to have such issues.
Did your iPhone’s alarm failed to go off at the correct time this morning?
