iPhone alarm fix on the way with iOS 4.2

The iPhone alarm bug that caused disruption to thousands of people’s working days on Monday will be fixed with the forthcoming iOS 4.2 update, Apple has confirmed.

A glitch with iPhone's internal alarm meant that recurring, pre-set alarms went off an hour later than they should have, following the end of British Summer Time.

Apple stated: "We're aware of an issue related to daylight-saving time and repeating alarms and will deliver a fix with the iOS 4.2 software update this month.

“We suggest customers set non-repeating alarms for now, and reset after November 7 to resolve the issue."

The update is set to bring a host of other new features to Apple smartphones, including the PrintCenter app which allows iPhone 4 and 3G owners to print remotely over a wireless connection.

Also new to the handsets is AirPlay. This offers wireless streaming of video, audio and photos from iPhones to other devices over Wi-Fi.
