iPhone alarm bug on the first two days of 2011 works now


My daughter who is now back in Australia complained to me that her alarm in the iPhone was not working during the first two days of 2011. What a way for iPhone to greet the new year? She says good thing she didn’t have work that day. Apparently, iPhone did have a glitch as reported here:

iPhone alarm not working leads Apple fans to oversleep post-New Year’s

Apple spokeswoman Natalie Harrison told Macworld that the company was aware of the problem and vowed a quick fix.

“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.”

The problem primarily affected iPhone 4 models and earlier versions with software upgrades.

I usually use the alarm too but since it was January 1 and 2, I didn’t get to try it. My daughter tells me that the alarm seems to be working. I also tested it now and it works. Is it working for you now?
