First Apple couldn't make a clock that worked with daylight savings time now just a normal day in January doesn't work either. Maybe spend less time creating "innovative" antenna designs and more time coding a simple function correctly.
How can something that phones have been doing right since the dawn of the mobile phone, get broken in this day and age.
@At the you shouldn't only rely on your iPhone as your only alarm argument
Bull$hit on that!
Should I carry a separate digital camera too incase my iPhone camera doesn't work? Or a standalone iPod incase that function breaks, or a standalone GPS device incase that goes down too, or even a backup mobile phone incase my iPhone doesn't like the look of some random day.
Stop trying to defend Apples repeated failure at creating a working clock.
Been using my phone to wake me since my first mobile phone ~1998 and the all mighty iPhone is the only one to ever have a cockup

It's an automatic, not a automatic. I am Dutch, yet I see that.

Hey at least it's not as bad as the ps3 leap year clock fault, that knocked millions of people off its network for 24 hours. Come to think about it poor old sony has taken beating this past year with more then one epic failure. First the internal clock glitch and now the epic unfixable crypto failure that failoverflow exploited just last week.
Don't worry apple you are not far behind with attenagate and these clock glitches...lol

Well idiots and children like on this site where the average age is 16 apparently judging by some of the things I've seen.
If you don't have backups for IMPORTANT things in life, you deserve to be nipped in the azz to wake you up.

OK guys, enough whining about a broke app.
1. I have relied SOLELY on the alarm clock of my phones for about 10 years. This is the first time i was let down.
2. CHANGE THE DATE MANUALLY TO 4 JAN AND THE ALARM WILL WORK.
3. It is sad that an $800.00 smart phone is outperformed by a $2.00 battery operated alarm clock, but you gotta plan for the worst, and expect the best, and you will seldom be disappointed!

Some of us (especially those who travel for Christmas and new year) aren't at home with their regular alarm clocks, and only have the iPhone as an option to wake us. Seriously how hard can it be to code an alarm feature? It's first year programming. Huge fail by apple IMHO.

Moral: Never ALWAYS trust the iPhone's clock alarm.Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

This OTA "silent" updates are starting to frighten me a little. First came the "Send to MobileMe Gallery" feature, then Ping, and now this alarm fix. What ELSE could they be doing over the air?

The easiest solution is to avoid apple alarm software altogether. Use a third party alarm clock, I'm sure there are tons of better alarm apps out there.

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

Sheesh people. Yes, the iPhone's alarm should be expected to work correctly. But if you can afford an $800 iDevice then you should also be able to spend $5-$15 on a teeny weeny alarm clock as a backup.
Be prepared, or else you won't get anywhere in life.

That is a damn, damn shame.
Now, from what I gather there are no issues with 3rd party clock programs?
Regardless, this shouldn't even be a concern, and it is a shame we cannot rely on this type of device as an end all be all solution to something so damn basic.

I use "Alarmed" in the app store..works like a charm.Oh,and it's free."It takes a rare thing, a turning point, to free oneself from any obsession. Be it prejudice or hate, or, even love"

i dont use a recurring alarm. But this morning i set three alarms in 15 minute intervals to get up for work (i have bad luck with the snooze). None went off, i checked and they were all set am as they should be. I tried setting another alarm later in the day to test it, this also didnt work.Add me up on xbox live gamertag clikzip.

My iPhone alarm is the back up alarm. This morning for some odd reason woke up 1 minute before the iPhone alarm would have gone off.
