Happy New Year, and welcome to the first bug of the year! Engadget reports today on a problem that many of their readers have sent in that stops one-off alarms working on their iPhones after midnight on 1/1/2011. As Engadget points out, this is similar to the Daylight Savings Time bug seen earlier in the year, although that one also affected repeating alarm as well as single alarms.
Engadget says that until Apple comes up with an OS patch, youll have to work around the problem by setting a repeating alarm for when you want to be woken up, and then cancelling it once its woken you up. Meanwhile 9to5 Mac has discovered that the bug will actually correct itself on January 3rd, so youve only got to be patient and use the workaround for a couple more days. No official word from Apple as yet as to the cause, but I doubt that we'll hear from them until Monday anyway.
