(Newser) – If you use your iPhone as an alarm clock, 2011 might have gotten off to a late start for you this morning. One-time iOS alarms failed around the world, Macworld reports. Twitter rumblings were picked up by blogs like Engadget and TiPb, and Jason Snell confirmed the problem for Macworld, noting that recurring alarms did still work.

Engadget notes that this is similar to the one-hour-late alarm issue that occurred after Daylight Savings Time, and that setting a recurring alarm might be the best way to deal with the problem until Apple releases a patch. 9to5Mac, however, reports that the issue will fix itself come Monday.
