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.
