iPhone Alarms Not Working Come New Year’s Day 2011

One of our readers, Adam pointed us to an Apple Discussions thread where users are reporting that the alarm clock is not working on their
come New Year’s Day 2011.
It looks like the iPhone alarm bug affects only non-recurring alarms.
Forum member, Lijith first reported the issue:
iPhone 4 iOS 4.2.1 alarm not working since 01.01.2011. Tried different settings such as turning off automatic update and changing location. Nothing seem to be working. Any solution?
Though the discussion thread isn’t too long currently, there are other forum members and tech blogs reporting the same issue. You may remember that Apple had fixed the
. But it looks like the iPhone alarm bug is not limited only to iOS 4.2.1 as users are reporting the issue on
as well. We’re assuming that the issue will also affect iPod Touch users.
9to5Mac claims that the issue gets resolved after January 3rd, 2011 and can be avoided by setting the alarm as a recurring alarm.
If you depend on the iPhone alarm clock then please be aware of the issue and the workaround to resolve the issue (at least until January 3rd).
As always, please don’t forget to leave a comment to tell us if you hit the issue and whether the workaround resolved it.
Thanks Adam for the tip!
