Don't Apple realise how annoying that is.
They have known about this for over a month, it's pretty poor that no fix has been released especially as so many of us use the alarm to wake up on a morning which makes it pretty **** important.iPhone 4, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedNov 1, 2010 2:37 AM (in response to 510WGN)What the ****!!! I was late to work today because of this. UN-******* BELIEVABLE! Tried re-setting alarm, still goes off an hour later than the TIME SHOWN ON THE ******* PHONE!
Sort this the **** out you programming retards, and while you're at it, go **** yourselves.iphone 3GS, iOS 4, none
Currently Being ModeratedNov 1, 2010 2:39 AM (in response to 510WGN)I've been running some tests this morning and aside from the confirmed fact that it only affects reoccurring alarms, it affect reoccurring alarms that don't have ALL days marked. So if you have an alarm that's set for every day of the week, you're good.
I also figured out that if you set up an every day alarm, snooze, and then change the alarms to weekdays, the snooze is delayed by 1h as well.3GS, iOS 4

(I'm from London by the way)
So basically if you want your weekly alarm to work, just set it an hour earlier than you want for example, if you want to get up at 7am set the alarm for 6am.
The other way is to set your morning alarm for whatever time, but don't have any repeat days set. THIS WILL MEAN YOU HAVE TO TURN THE ALARM ON EVERY NIGHT.
Also I don't no when this will get fixed, so to be on the safe side you might want to set a backup alarm of the real time.
I have been advised this has been looked at.iPhone 4, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedNov 1, 2010 3:44 AM (in response to LeilaMS)Hi,
there's another topic on this as well
"Topic : Alarm Problem - 1hr delay"
Currently Being ModeratedNov 1, 2010 4:12 AM (in response to 510WGN)Mine's going off an hour late. The following doesn't work:
- Deleting and resetting the alarm.
- Setting the clock from auto to manual.
This is a real basic error, and is all over online news this morning. Get it together Apple :/Windows 7 x64 PC, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedNov 1, 2010 4:24 AM (in response to ScarlettMi)For me, just another nail in the coffin for Apple...they really need to spend more time and money keeping customers happy.
No amount of fancy lifestyle marketing is going to make people forget things like this.iPhone 3GS 32Gb, iOS 4, Alarm is an hour out
Currently Being ModeratedNov 1, 2010 4:39 AM (in response to 510WGN)I'm also curious. If this is supposed to have something to do w/ DST then why is it affecting me in Canada out of the blue from the morning of October 31st on when our time change doesn't come into effect until November 7th?3GS
Currently Being ModeratedNov 1, 2010 4:45 AM (in response to 510WGN)I too am in the US, and my alarms went off an hour early. I was so confused, I looked back over the list of alarms and could not figure out what happened. It is somewhat comforting to know that I'm not the only one. But I am glad I'm on the early side of things as opposed to the hour late group (feeling bad for y'all.)
Weird though, an alarm I have set at night, went off at the right time last night...
Makes me wonder if it starting with todays date, or if it's just going to affect just AM alarms, I'll find out tonight.
I did wake up going "is it DST already?!" then I looked it up and it doesn't happen until next week, like you said.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 1, 2010 4:53 AM (in response to 510WGN)Hey Apple - you deleted my post!? I posted (and saw the post on the forum) then it disappeared on a return to the post. And the post does not show in my account!
Reason? Maybe becuase I suggested Apple is liable for losses that might occur as a result of the lost hour - loss of earnings, cancelled and repurchased travel tickets, missed appointments, etc.Macbook Pro, iPhone, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 1, 2010 4:53 AM (in response to Kiwi Jim)I also live in the US, the iPhone Alarm went off an hour early. I thought I would be clever and set an additional alarm for an hour later, and it didn't go off. Now I am scrambling to get the kids off to schooliOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedNov 1, 2010 5:10 AM (in response to 510WGN)This is a really wacky bug as it seems more than just repeat alarms ignoring/missing the DST change.
Let me see if I've got this right...
The southern Hemisphere - Aus/NZ - are starting DST so put their clocks forward, which means their alarms go off an hour early, yes?
Here in the Northern Hemisphere - EU/USA/Can - we're ending DST, so clocks go back meaning our alarms go off one hour late, yes?
So why are alarms going off an hour early in the US/Can? Not only are their clocks going back, like here in the EU, but they haven't even changed yet according to posts which say this happens next weekend.
The only pattern I can see is that EU/AUS/NZ are all ahead of GMT/UTC whereas the US/Can are behind.MacBook Pro 15", 2.4GHz, 4GB, 160GB, Mac OS X (10.6), black iPhone 3GS 32GB, 32GB iPad
