How can I fix my iPhone alarm?

Some iPhone owners have noticed their clock alarms did not go off on January 1 or 2, 2011. Apple is aware of the problem, which appears to be a firmware bug.

Alarm functions will work properly again starting on January 3, 2011.

UPDATE: If your alarm is still not working as of January 3, 2011, please visit this updated article detailing how to fix your iPhone alarm.


Just set an alarm for 12:03AM EST for January 3, 2011 - it did not go off. Seems Apple hasn't fixed this issue... To me it seems like it should have been fixed when the phone noticed the date change to the third, regardless of timezone, it should be working and it is not.

Hi I also faced the same issue since Jan 1st and thought it quite strange. It then struck me that perhaps it could be a bug. I downloaded the latest 4.2 os onto my phone and tested the alarm today. it works fine now.
