    Time Change Alert: Glitch in iPhone Alarm Clock
    Posted by Sam Diaz

    iPhone users beware: There's a glitch in the alarm clock app that will keep iPhone alarm clocks from recognizing this week's time change in most U.S. states this weekend.

    What does that mean? Actually, we're not sure.

    You see, a post on CNN's Tech, which includes a quote from an Apple spokesperson, suggests that your alarm clock will go off an hour late - therefore making you late on Monday morning. But that makes no sense, considering the fall time change is when we set our clocks back an hour, getting back the extra hour of sleep that we lost in the Spring.

    Daylight Savings time officially ends at 2 a.m. Sunday morning, returning most of the country to Standard time.

    If I understand the glitch correctly, your alarm will still go off at 5:30 a.m. on Monday morning - but it will really be 4:30 a.m. But maybe I don't really understand the glitch. Does the clock reset itself for the time change and the alarm clock self-corrects the wrong way? Or maybe the alarm clock resets for the change but the clock doesn't. I have asked Apple for some clarification and will update when and if I get a reply.

    or is it program to auto-set itself, and you can't do it yourself !?
