Some iPhone users still complaining about alarm glitch

Some iPhone users are still complaining that their handsets' in-built alarm clocks are not working, despite Apple's assurance that the New Year bug plaguing the alarm clocks would fix itself by Monday.

On Sunday, many iPhone users complained that the New Year got off to a slow start as their phones' alarms failed to wake them up.

Speaking on the issue, Natalie added, "Customers can set recurring alarms for those dates and all alarms will work properly beginning January 3."

But, a report published in the Britain's Daily Mail newspaper stated claimed that thousands of people were late for work on Monday due to the iPhone alarm glitch.

Kyle Wiens from iFixit site said that the alarm glitch was may be due to a bug in the date code of the iOS software, which run the iPhone.

The problem was reportedly not only the iPhone users. Some users of the iPod also reported a similar problem with the in-built alarms of their music players.

Currently, the smartphone market is dominated by the iPhone. Apple claims that it had sold more than 1.7 million iPhone 4s by last June.

The iPhone alarms glitch could not discourage investors. Shares in Apple climbed to record high of $330.20, giving the firm a market value of more than $300 billion.
