DST glitch: Apple iOS would rather spring back
Consumers report that their iPhone alarms went off at the wrong time as daylight saving time hit. Maybe Apple needs to hire a CCO (chief clockmaking officer)?
Apple's iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad yet again had difficulty adjusting to daylight saving time.
This means many alarms went off went off at incorrect times yesterday and today, making people late for appointments, church, and whatever else people do on Sunday mornings (as for me, just don't wake me up).
"Thanks iPod Touch and iPhone for making me late to work! DST is not working properly," Twitter user iSiC_XXIII wrote.
The fix is easy, according to PCMag.com. "Either power the phone off and turn it on again, or go into the device's settings and switch Airplane Mode on briefly, then flip it off."
The problem mirrors the bug that hit Australian and New Zealand iPhone owners last year when they switched from daylight saving time back to GMT. The problem could, conceivably, hit Europe again in several weeks. Apple has not yet responded to a request for comment.and
Additional timekeeping problems came up on January 2, when non-reoccurring alarms, then randomly fixed themselves the following day.
Maybe Apple needs to hire a CCO (chief clockmaking officer) who can tune up these devices back up?
