Some iPhones Have Problems With Clock—Again
On Sunday a number of people found themselves awake much later then they should have been. Many owners of Apple’s Smartphone, the iPhone found that the phone's built-in clock, instead of putting the time ahead an hour for daylight savings day, put their clock ahead twice that. This mishap put the phones and their users two hours ahead of the rest of the world. (Ed note: other phone owners said their phone set the time back one hour as it it were fall.)
This glitch in the system lead to numerous angry tweets, but a few people came to Apples defence saying that their Smartphone changed its clock correctly. (Ed Note: Several people I know own iPhones, including myself, and there was no glitch at all.) This is definitely not the first time the iPhone’s clock has had problems adjusting. On New Year’s Day, a problem with the alarm caused a great number of people to sleep in New Year’s morning. Also last November’s daylight savings date lead to incorrect clocks.
The iPhone made a mistake with an equal amount, showing no bias, between AT&T users and Verizon Wireless users. As for the few that took this in stride, they suggest turning off the device, then back on, or to try turning on Airplane Mode, then turn it back off.
