After New Zealand & Australia, Daylight Saving Time Bug Now Affecting iPhone Users In Europe

It now appears that iPhone users in Europe and Middle East too have been experiencing similar issues after these countries switched over to Standard Time yesterday. However, unlike the Southern Hemisphere where the bug caused the alarm to go off an hour earlier, iPhones in the Northern Hemisphere are seemingly triggered an hour late. This has quite evidently resulted in a lot of iPhone users waking up late for work or school.
But since users in the United States are scheduled to switch back to Standard Time on November 7, itwill be interesting to see if Apple releases iOS 4.2 this week to avoid many more iPhone users getting affected by this bug.
Nevertheless, if you are one of those users who have been affected by this issue already, do note that a temporary fix to the problem can be achieved by turning off the recurring alarm on your iPhone and instead relying on the single use alarm (not ideal). Alternately, you may also set your alarm to go off an hour earlier (in the northern hemisphere) or later (in the southern hemisphere) as need be.
