Apple glitch

A new glitch on Apple’s iPhone, relating to non-repeating alarms set for January 1st or 2nd, stopped its built-in alarm clock going off, leaving many people oversleeping on the first two days of the New Year.

Irate bloggers and tweeters complained that they had been late for work or had risked missing planes, boats or trains. Apple has acknowledged the problem and says it will be fixed by January 3rd.

The good news is that there is a reliable, specialist, single-purpose device available on the market, known colloquially as an alarm clock.
