Midnight 2011 set off another iPhone "alarm fail" panic for those using Apple's native clock application. The issue which affects an iPhone alarm set to a one time wake-up, was reported by dozens of angry users via Twitter last night. Reports of the clock bug continued on Twitter late into the afternoon on New Years Day.
Apple responded to a direct inquiry by Engadget.com on the dysfunctional iPhone alarm hysteria.
"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." said Apple's Fiona Martin.
In order to avoid alarm failure until January 3, you'll need to set a recurring alarm by selecting repeat and then select the additional days you want the alarm to go off. That's the quick work around fix for the time being.
Hopefully January 3rd will bring calm back to planet iPhone. So take a patience pill and call me Monday morning.
