Yet another bug with the iPhone alarm. A number of iPhone users seem to have overslept on New Year’s day thanks to a bug in the alarm app that has caused non-recurring one-off alarms to malfunction. Users have complained that their alarms failed to ring in at the scheduled time since moving into the new year. There is a workaround for the time being – set the alarm in recurring mode which however means you will have to disable it after you wake up in order to stop the alarm from ringing again the next day.
For what it’s worth, reports note that the bug only works if the phone clock actually ticks over from 11:59 PM on December 31 to 00:00 on January 1. Also, the bug seems to autocorrect itself after January 3. This means it is just a minor hassle for those of you looking to set alarms for January 1.
