iPhone DST bug causing alarms to fail across Europe

Email Twitter: @ronwinbeta Nov 1st, 2010 inNews

An iPhone bug already seen when Australia switched between Daylight Savings Time and Standard Time a few weeks ago has now hit Europe. Twitter is alight with reports of recurring iPhone alarms going off an hour later than usual. So even though the iOS clock changed correctly over the weekend, the alarm is still locked to Daylight Savings Time. Thing is, according to a ZDNet Australia report from more than three weeks ago, Apple acknowledged the bug with a promise to fix it with a software update. So why wasn’t it rolled out in time to avoid this mess in Europe? Let’s see if Apple fixes it when North America makes the switch on November 7th.
