iPhone alarm

Remember all of the trouble that iPhone owners had with their alarms back in November when the Daylight Savings Time change hit?  That very same problem is cropping up once again, but this time the New Year is to blame.  On January 1st, any iPhone alarm that was just a one-off, non-repeating alert failed to go off, and the issue happened again on January 2nd.  Apple responded by saying that the alarm problem should be resolved beginning on January 3rd, aka today, but many users are reporting that non-recurring alarms are still not working correctly.

It's kind of crazy to see iPhones all around the world still having alarm problems, especially since the issues are still going on after Apple said that they would be fixed.  Luckily, users are at least able to set up recurring alarms that should still go off without a hitch until Apple can get this whole situation sorted out.  If you really don't trust your iPhone, and I can't blame you if you don't, there's always the option to go out and find a good ol' battery-powered alarm clock for a couple of bucks at your local shop.  How many of you were affected by a faulty iPhone alarm this past weekend?
