Apple Promises iPhone Daylight Saving Fix, Won't Say When

A daylight saving software bug has rendered the recurring alarm function on iPhones pretty useless. Apple says it has already developed a fix, but won’t say when it will be released.

Lifehacker asked Apple what was being done to fix the problem on Monday, and today we got this response from a spokesperson:

We’re aware of this issue and already developed a fix which will be available to customers in an upcoming software update.

Apple wouldn’t confirm the time frame when the update will be released. A broader iPhone update is widely expected in November — having to wait a month for the fix sounds unpleasant but a real possibility.

Do you think Apple should be working faster to deal with the problem? Share your thoughts in the comments.
