Daylight Savings Time starts tonight at 2 a.m. and as we all know, the iPhone has been notorious for causing issues with alarms, in turn causing folks to be late for work, appointments, and what have you. If it's any indication of what will happen again this year, here's some things you can do to Daylight Savings Time proof your iPhone alarms.
Last year, the glitch seems to affect non-recurring alarms. While your iPhone would move the time ahead an hour correctly, non-recurring alarms didn't seem to take the switch and were going off an hour late. To try and prevent this, and we know it sucks, we'd recommend creating a recurring alarm just in case your regular one doesn't go off.
Another option would be to turn off time zone support completely and just update the time accordingly when you need to. Annoying, yes, but perhaps necessary. We aren't quite sure why Apple can't seem to get issues like Daylight Savings Time issues fixed, but until they do and we don't hear of anymore issues, we recommend you plan accordingly either with another alarm clock or by setting multiple alarms on your iPhone.
