Over the weekend, some iPad 2 owners reported experiencing backlight bleeding issues with their shiny new tablet. The iPad wasn't the only iOS device that had a rough weekend, though, as many iPhones failed to adjust to the daylight savings time switch correctly. Rather than leaping ahead an hour, many iPhones fell back an hour, causing users to be late for work and other activities. There's been no comment on the matter from Apple.

This isn't the first time the iPhone's clock has caused problems for owners, or even the first time that Apple's handset has had issues with daylight savings time. Neither of the iPhones in my household stumbled when it came time to leap forward an hour on Sunday morning, but there are several reports from other users that weren't so lucky. For those of you in places that do observe daylight savings time, have any of you had problems with your iPhone's clock?
