“As NSW, Victoria, Tasmania, the ACT and South Australia switched to daylight saving time at the weekend, a bug in the Apple iPhone caused some workers to run late yesterday,” Ben Grubb reports for The Syndey Morning Herald. “The bug appears to affect only those with a ‘recurring’ alarm.”
Grubb reports, “There has been no indication when a fix might be made available. Apple Australia has been contacted for comment but is yet to respond… The bug appears to affect all of Apple’s products running iOS – Apple’s operating system for its iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Last week Apple blog TUAW noted the same issue for New Zealand iOS users.”
Grubb reports, “Whirlpool user Mr.Likeable suggested that recurring alarms set prior to daylight saving time would make your iPhone alarm go off one hour later than you wanted it to and that an alarm set since the time change would make it go off one hour earlier.”

MacDailyNews Note: Watch those alarms (set ’em manually) until Apple pushes out a fix.
