My wife has a job where she has to start early a few days a week. She has repeating alarms on her iPhone that will wake her up at the right time. But lately the alarm has been going off an hour early much to the chagrin ot her (and me!).

Not being an iPhone person (I am an Android user) all I could do was Google around and find tons of hits about this particular IOS bug that occurs around the turn of DST on or off. But it's not clear which IOS release I need to apply to fix it so we can both get uninterrupted sleep!

Her phone appears to be on 4.1 and we don't upgrade firmware much. In fact the phone is hardly ever connected to a PC. Is this particular bug fixed in any particular firmware release?

Thanks

Upgrade the iOS, the later firmwares were better at handling day light savings changes. 5.1 is the latest and includes a host of new features and performance upgrades. It also includes the ability to upgrade the iOS over the air, so you don't need to connect it to your PC to update (although it will require wifi).

OR

Set the alarm one hour later than intended :-D

I seem to recall this problem a year or so ago, but haven't had it this time around running  os 5.1.  The old 3G in the house is still running older software.  I'll have a look at that & see if it does it on that.

I'm pretty sure there was no solution except to change to a time zone Apple believes is real time ( i.e. California time) then adjust the clock until daylight saving ended.  You may just be better to wait another day or so and the problem should fix itself this Sunday.

If I recall a different solution as I play around with the old phone I'll update.

Delete the existing re occurring alarm and create a new one was the fix a while ago for older firmware.

That's the one, just delete it and recreate it from scratch.  easy enough to fix.

Is she on the latest iOS version?  This hasn't been an issue for me since iOS 5 and was only ever an issue with recurring alarms.

I am not quite ready for tea at 4:30am! Anyway after DST ended the bug went away so I have 6 months to upgrade IOS on her phone.
