Thousands of iPhone users in the UK who rely on their iPhones alarm to wake them up got an unintentional extra hour in bed when the clocks went back one hour in the UK this weekend. According to the Telegraph newspaper, a bug in the iPhones clock meant that although the iPhone automatically adjusted to the ending of Daylight Savings, and went back one hour, a fault in the software meant that the alarm didnt synchronise at the same time, so any users that had set their alarm were woken up an hour too late.
The Telegraph reports that many iPhone users then took to the social networks to grumble about the glitch. Apparently Apple first acknowledged the bug when Australian clocks were put forward at the start of October. Users are now being told to delete all their current alarms and set new ones to beat the tardy bug.
