Recently we reported on the problem that many iOS users were experiencing with their iDevices, now Apple has officially confirmed that there is an iOS bug where non-repeating alarms fail to ring on the first few days of the new year, recommending that users set recurring alarms until Jan. 3, when the alarms will resume working properly.
Apple spokesperson Natalie Harrison responded to the reports by confirming to Macworld that Apple is aware of the problem.
“We’re aware of an issue related to non repeating alarms set for January 1 or 2,” Harrison said. “Customers can set recurring alarms for those dates and all alarms will work properly beginning January 3.”
So in other words, like we posted earlier if you need to use your alarm clock, set it to recurring. We think it is great that Apple acknowledges the problem, and since it seems to resolve itself by Jan. 3rd there isn’t really much Apple should/could do.
