iOS 4.1 DST Bug causes Europe to Oversleep

Time warp A couple of weeks ago New Zealand and Australia iOS 4.1 device owners lost an hour of beauty sleep thanks to a bug in iOS 4.1. People with recurring alarms had their alarms trigger an hour earlier when the countries switched to DST.

While Apple states that the bug will be fixed in a software update, the fix has yet to appear. Unfortunately for our friends in the UK and other European countries, their DST ended this past weekend causing iOS 4.1 European users to oversleep by an hour.

While some hope the iOS 4.1 bug will be fixed by November 7th, which is when DST ends in the US and Canada, I plan to oversleep an hour and blame Apple if I don’t get an iOS update.
