Did anyone else's alarm not go off on their iphone this morning?!

Found 1st Nov 2010
When the clocks went back Saturday night my iphone automatically adjusted the time. 'How very clever' I thought.
But then this morning when my alarm should have gone off at 6.45am, it didn't. Luckily I woke up about 7 and was not late for work! But then the alarm went off at 7.45 instead! Even though in the alarm setting it said 6.45.

Some sort of bug?

yeah, it's a bug. I'm sure it was documented a few years ago

Same here. Do I need to set my alarm again or will it of fixed itself now I've gone into the clock?

Looks like you have to delete the previous alarm settings and set them again to fix the issue. I've just done mine, hopefully they go off at the correct time tomorrow!

Thanks, that explains it. Doesn't explain how they can c**k up something so simple though!

Cheers will give this a go now.

My ipod touch alarms went off an hour late. Just as well I have the day off or may have been late for work.

If they make you late, Sue Apple for loss of earnings, Lol

What you should of done was check the alarm worked before you went to sleep.

Its all i use my iPhone for and luckily, it managed to fulfil its potential this morning and the alarm went off at the correct time.

Same here, mine went off fine this morning ???

mine was fine too

It just works.

Fine here too

yeah, mine didn't go off either. Thought it was weird how it went off an hour later as I was driving to work.

Hope they've fixed it!
