When I first heard that iPhone owners were having an issue with their alarm after the DST, I assumed that it was an isolated incident — that was until it happed to me this morning. We now know that this problem is more widespread than first thought.
Luckily I woke up without the aid of my alarm, but I am sure that there are thousands of you who did not and are now running late. The worrying thing is, there is currently no solution for this, as we will have to wait until iOS 4.2.
The best thing to do for now is to set your alarm one-hour earlier than you would normally — but only those who are now on Daylight Savings Time. Unhappy iPhone users are frustrated with Apple not releasing a small update to patch this problem, but why would they when iOS 4.2 is just days — if not weeks away from a general release download? We think this, as Apple is to hold a secret event this week,
However, with the U.S. all set for DST on November 7th, maybe Steve Jobs will force an update for his fellow Americans — we all know how he likes to give them preferential treatment.
