Iphone alarm clock no longer works after 2011.

I have 3 friends along with me that after 2011 the alarm will not go off. Does anyone else have this problem? Does anyone have a fix? Thanks

set the alarm as a reoccuring alarm and it will work IE set it to go off monday-friday at 9AM or what ever time you want it to go off

Quick Google search gets us bad news, it's official, alarm does not work starting new year. Mine didn't work this morning and I got few complaints at work. But, same Google search brings us the good news, kind of, Apple has admitted the problem/software bug, and their spokesman said the issue will fix itself on the 3rd of January. May be a good idea to delete your current alarm and set up a new one anyway.

You are correct. It has to be re-occuring Mon-friday etc.

 

Also, everyone is saying that it will go away after Jan 3rd 2011. So just wait till tomorrow. Id set a couple more alarms to make sure though. haha

Just curious: how will this problem "fix itself on the 3d of Jan?"  Will this involve a "patch" to iPhone software, a downloadable upgrade, or what?  If the problem will just "go away" on the 3d, then it's not a "fix."  It just won't affect iPhones after the 3d.  Which is it?  Thanks.

INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1. First you have to tap clock.

STEP 2. Then you have to tap Edit.

STEP 3. Now you have to tap your alarm

 

STEP 4. Now you have to tap Repeat.

STEP 5. Now you have to set a repeat interval.

STEP 6. Now tap save.

That’s it. In this way you can fix the iPhone Alarm bug. According to 9to5mac, this alarm bug will fix itself on 3rd January 2011. According to Engadget, It is one time alarms that are causing the problem, not repeats. Don’t forget to share your views in the comment section below. As usual stay tuned with us for more updates.
