Apple Software Update Caused iPhone Owners to Oversleep

There's rarely a time when the thought of gaining a few extra minutes to sleep in enrages so many people, but a recent Apple software update that managed to do just that. Gawker reports that the tech company's new overnight update feature left multiple iPhone owners in a frenzy when it completely wiped out stored alarms after installing the latest operating system. (So much for the excitement over seeing how Apple would improve upon iOS 9, which enhanced the Notes app, expanded Siri's capabilities and added new phone backgrounds.)

Appleinsider reports that last month's iOS 9.1 update addressed alarm issues, but not the one that turned off alarms and left customers ranting on social media about oversleeping.

In addition to pissing off a bunch of flying-by-the-seat-of-their-pants iPhone users, this incident clearly highlights just how much we rely on the alarms in the first place. Honestly, we can't think of a better time to invest in some wearable tech as either a backup or replacement for phone alarms in case of similar smartphone slip-ups in the future (because they're bound to happen).

The latest Apple snafu comes weeks after iPhone 6s users complained about the smartphone's overheating home button and audio and 3D glitches, among other tech issues.
