When you place too much faith in technology, sometimes there are unforeseen glitches that arise, and in the case of some iPhone owners today, they were late for work simply because of a glitch that caused their alarms to malfunction. iPhone owners would have realized (all too late) that their wake-up alert was an hour later, and for some, not at all. This is due to the fact that the clocks are pushed forward for British Summer Time, although it does not seem as though the alarm glitch affected everyone. Apple has declined to issue a comment on its cause, although we have covered news of such a thing happening in the US before. It does seem, however, that the glitch affected non-recurring alarms set within the iPhone’s calendar application, instead of its dedicated alarm clock.
