“Oh my god! What time is it?!?!?”
This was probably the comment made by many iPhone customers who failed to wake-up on time for work this past weekend. Apparently, a glitch in the iPhone’s iOS 4.0 operating system caused the alarm feature on the phone to malfunction. The single wake-up feature did not work on the phones after midnight on December 31st. If customers had set their phones for a certain alarm time, the gadget, that claims to make everyone’s lives easier, would not have responded.
Many customers, mostly young people who use the phone for organizing their hectic lives, rely on the alarm feature instead of a traditional alarm clock.
This is the second issue with the new iPhone’s alarm that has occurred in less than two months. The first was an issue with the daylight savings time change on November 7th.
iPhone customers took to the web to voice their grievances.
“Stupid iPhone alarm clock went off an hour late. What a great start to the week.” Messages like these were all over the social networking website known as Twitter.
Apple claimed to have fixed the problem by Monday, January 3rd.
Our advice. If you have a highly unsympathetic boss or an important meeting to attend, always use a back up. Alarm clocks cost less than twenty dollars and can be equipped with a battery incase of a power outage.
We know you love your sleep, but keeping your job is even more important.
