Here we go again … If you planned to be agreed today for a single alarm you have noticed that has IOS probably not played. According to Engadget found last night, a lot of complaints about faulty alarms appeared on Twitter.
What seems to happen is that in making the transition from 23:59 to December 31 to midnight of January 1, IOS Clock app (versions 4.2.1, 4.1 and 4.0.2, to our knowledge) simply ignores all alarm without repetition. That is, if you checked your alarm clock to ring once, it will not play.
According to tests of the 9 to 5 Mac, however, the problem will disappear on January 3, next Monday, and alarms without repeating work again. It’s almost like a celebration of New Year for the IOS lasted two full days and was ignored any extra commitment – that you get to sleep more, it ignores the alarms. It’s not a bug, it’s a feature!
While Apple has not come up with some explanation for this bug (and the clock has fared better than the commission, lately; Jobs should not be happy with those responsible for it), the only known solution is to set their alarms to repeat themselves at least once per week. Apparently, third-party apps (or Zunes) are not affected by the problem.
