Found yourself oversleeping of late?
Awoken from a 'kip to tell Twitter about', only to realise you're half an hour late for work?
It might not have been your fault - if your chosen wake-up call blares from your trusty old iPhone.
The reason? Some Apple users using the iOS overnight update feature to download iOS 9.1 discovered that the download turned off their alarm while they slept.
Set my phone to update the iOS "later". It did at some point of the night which meant my alarm clock settings were gone. Now I'm late. Ugh— Conz Preti (@conz) October 23, 2015
Iphone: Would you like to update to iOS 9.1? Me: No thanks, do it overnight so my alarm doesn't go off and I'm an hour late for work!— Baztian (@OllieFrater) October 24, 2015
My iPhone decided to update overnight and totally ignored my alarm. Thank God for my internal body clock!— متمرد من دون قضية (@_RebelleFleur_) October 29, 2015
AppleInsider reports that readers began contacting them with the issue after last week's iOS 9.1 update rolled out last week.
Apple is yet to respond to the issue, though responded to a similar issue found in iOS 9 with a patch in iOS 9.0.1.
As for how to fix it - it's pretty simple: just download iOS 9.1 during the day. You can turn off the nightly download feature in your Settings menu.
"But what if I want my software updates to download while I'm asleep - and a future update does the same thing?!"
Then download a different alarm app.
Or even consider digging out that old digital clock that last saw the light of day in 2003?
