Apple announces a Daylight Savings Time (DST) iPhone alarm bug for US, as published on different international news sites on Sunday.

According to the reports, Apple is notifying all iPhone users in the US that it failed to fix a bug on its alarm when the Daylight Savings Time ends.

The said bug will not be able to recognize the apps and therefore affects the alarm, wherein the time should be one hour earlier in most parts of North America.

With this, iPhone users in the US were being advised not to rely on its alarm clock on Monday, or they will be one hour late.

Instead, iPhone users may manually program after the DST or delete the alarm clock and then reset.

Apple also told the news that the company is now trying to fix the bug, but it will be only be accessible if all countries worldwide that uses DST has already passed their DST date for the year.

Aside from iPhone 4, other Apple devices that were said to be affected by the bug are iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, and iPod Touch excluding the the original first-generation one.

Incidentally, this is the same bug that affected iPhone users in Australia and Europe during their respective Daylight Savings Time periods last month.
