Midnight 2011 set off another iPhone “alarm fail” for those using the smartphone as an alarm clock. The problem — when the iPhone’s alarm clock app was set to a one time wake-up — was reported by dozens of unhappy Twitterers.

Reports of the issue continued into the afternoon on New Years Day. “We’re aware of an issue related to non repeating alarms set for January 1 or 2. Customers can set recurring alarms for those dates and all alarms will work properly beginning January 3,” Apple told “engadget” (http://www.engadget.com/2010/12/31/psa-iphone-alarms-not-working-come-new-years-day-2011/).
