So for the last few days my iPhone alarm hasn't been going off in the morning, and I thought I was going insane and somehow sleeping through it... Turns out I'm not.
Apple fans started the New Year with a bit of a hangover after a software glitch caused the iPhone's alarm function to stop working.
The failure caused many to oversleep on the first two days of 2011, with some complaining they were late for work or even missed flights. Users could set alarms - but they didn't go off.
Social messaging sites like Twitter lit up with complaints from groggy iPhone users all over the world.
"Dear iPhone peeps. Please fix the alarm issue before I get home. Some things you shouldn't have to ask for," wrote Joanne Warner in London.
Apple spokeswoman Natalie Harrison told Macworld that the company was aware of the problem and vowed a quick fix.
"We're aware of an issue related to non-repeating alarms set for January 1 or 2," Harrison said. "Customers can set recurring alarms for those dates and all alarms will work properly beginning January 3."
The problem primarily affected iPhone 4 models and earlier versions with software upgrades.
UPDATE: HuffPost readers have written in to tell us that despite Apple's promise that "all alarms will work properly beginning January 3," the alarm clock glitch has still not been remedied.
Carla P. told us in an email, "My iPhone alarm didn't go off this morning. I also set a calendar appointment with an alert that also didn't go off. My TIMER worked."
Reader Lindsay G. shared a letter she had written to Apple CEO steve Jobs explaining to him of how the iPhone's buggy alarm clock caused her to oversleep on New Year's day, arrive late to work, and lose her job as a result.
"Mr. Jobs, I’d like to let you know that you have officially, directly contributed to unemployment in 2011," she wrote. "If you had warned me about the glitch, I could have at least picked up a $5 battery operated alarm clock that would have saved my job. Now I’m unemployed in a time when jobs are not easily had, and I am short on my rent. So, Happy New Year to you, Mr. Jobs, I hope you remember to shoot me an email next time there is any chance of a glitch,"

The new year may be off to a bumpy start for some iPhone users due to a problem with the iPhone's alarm.
As the Daily Mail reports, "The iPhone's non-recurring alarms stopped working for a staggering two days after the clocks struck midnight to usher in 2011. Instead, thousands of smart phone owners got a surprise lie-in and many were forced to blame the glitch for being late for work."
Apple has told Engadget that it is aware of the iPhone alarm glitch. "We're aware of an issue related to non repeating alarms set for January 1 or 2. Customers can set recurring alarms for those dates and all alarms will work properly beginning January 3," the Apple spokesperson said.
