Bad iPhone! You've made me late!

Remember the iPhone recurring alarm DST bug that affected Australians and Europeans, making them oversleep? It never effected me, because of my location (US). However, it just happened to me and I'm sure it has happened to you too. If it did, write to us in the comments. The United States changed to Daylight Savings time yesterday. A bug in Apple's iOS deactivates all its recurring alarms when Daylight Saving Time is activated on all their devices—which is something that happens automatically. The DST change happened yesterday. As a result, millions of Americans have failed to wake up on time this Monday, because they have their wake up alarms to go off only on work days—I forgot about it myself. Some people are reporting that the bug still happened even while they remembered to reset everything in their iPhones. The recurring alarm clock didn't activate at the set time on Sunday or today. Currently, the only solution seems to set the alarm manually every day. If the bug has happened to you, please write to us in the comments and pass this around to your friends with iPhones, so they can report about it too. No one needs to be late for work!
