iPhone Alarm Did Not Go Off on Jan. 1st, 2011


I am one of Apples biggest fans, but this morning they owe me an apology. Last night I set two alarms on my designed in Cupertino iPhone. One for 4:35 AM and one for 4:40 AM. My eyes opened to see a big red 5 AM on my (not set) clock radio. I needed to be somewhere at 5:15!

My New Year’s Eve beverages, enjoyed while playing 9 Ball at California Billiard Club, did not get any stronger than diet Pepsi and coffee, and I was home before the New Year ball drop. How could I have slept through two iPhone alarms? Apple let me down. The alarms did not go off! Thankfully, I made my destination on time this morning, but I wonder how many lives were altered by this iPhone glitch? How many users are still asleep?

PCMAG.COM explains it here. I think I need to set the clock radio… ;-(

    I had 3 alarms set for this morning 1/1/11, all of them still show as ON… I thought I didn’t hear them, but I see I am not alone. Apple screwed up something. My iPhone was on.

    I am really disappointed from what happened. For the nth time, I hope that this incident will never happen again. If iPhone dreams to be the leading smartphone globally, they should fix minor problems such as this one as this will greatly affect their reputation and especially their sales. http://iphonescreenprotectorblog.com/

    Yes, I agree they should be able to fix problems like this, or send out an alert. I just set the clock radio as a back up. I do still love my iPhone, but it needs to behave…

    That’s so cool. Apple wants us to sleep in on New Years Day. Big brother really cares.
