iPhone DST alarm clock bug hits Europe

Remember that annoying DST bug that was affecting Australian iPhone users' alarm clocks? Well, now it's Europe's turn. The switch from Daylight Saving Time to Standard time happened last night and now many European iPhone users woke up late this morning.

Even though the iPhones are correctly changing the clock time, recurring alarms are not recognizing it. What's even stranger, is that not all alarms are affected. If the alarm is set for "every day" or "never", then the alarm will go off at the correct time.

What disappoints me is that Apple knew about this bug and promised a software update to fix it. Why hasn't it been released yet? Do they plan to fix it before the switch hits North America next week?

To our European readers, did you wake up late this morning because of this bug?
