IPhone Users Left Sleeping Amid Latest Alarm Failure

IPhone users counting on the device to wake them this weekend got a surprise as the Apple Inc. gadget’s alarm-clock system failed for a third time.

A fault may prevent one-time alarms from working on Jan. 1 and 2, the Cupertino, California-based company said in a statement yesterday. Recurring alarms will still function on those dates and all alarms will operate from Jan. 3, according to Apple, which is the world’s third-most valuable publicly traded company.
