iPhone Alarm not Working Fix

iPhone Alarm not Working Fix - Apple says a glitch on its iPhone 4 that stopped its built-in alarm clock from going off will be fixed.

Apple didn't say what caused the problem that let many people oversleep on the first two days of the New Year, but said the alarm will work properly on Monday, the BBC reported.

Bloggers and tweeters complained the glitch made them late for work and put them at risk for missing planes and trains.

"We're aware of an issue related to non-repeating alarms set for January 1 or 2," Apple spokeswoman Natalie Harrison said. "Customers can set recurring alarms for those dates and all alarms will work properly beginning January 3."

The anomaly appears to affect single alarm settings on the iPhone 4 and earlier models with software updates, the BBC said.

Apple sold more than 1.7 million iPhone 4's by June 2010, making it the company's most successful product launch.

In November, European iPhone users say a glitch in the cellphone's alarm clock app caused many to wake up an hour late when it failed to adjust for daylight saving time.

The iPhone users said recurring alarms set to anything other than "every day" failed to adjust to Sunday's time change when the iPhone's internal clocks automatically changed, CNN reported.

The company is hoping that Smart phones could soon take the place of a wallet, containing identification and credit card information, researchers in the United States say.
