Apple wakes up to fix clock problem

Written by Nick Farrell



Alarm goes off at last

The fruity cargo cult, Apple, which seems to have a huge problem developing a working alarm clock, has just admitted there is a problem with its iPhone 5. It has been known for some time that some users' sleep/wake buttons to not work resulting in anyone dumb enough to have a Jobs’ Mob device order their lives being late for work, or school.

Apple has a huge problem with writing code to run clocks. Having them switch over to summer time as another issue which took ages to be fixed. Jobs’ Mob has launched a new program that will allow the "small percentage" of those affected by this issue to have their phones repaired by Apple free of charge. The fix-it program, which went live yesterday in the US and Canada requires you to enter your device's serial number at an Apple website. If you are lucky enough to qualify to have your phone fixed you will get the nod to take it to your Apple Repair Centre.

It will take up to six days for the Apple geniuses to repair the phone and you will need to erase all of the content and settings on your device. 

"Note: If your iPhone 5 has any damage such as a cracked screen which impairs the replacement of the sleep/wake button that issue will need to be resolved prior to the sleep/wake button replacement. In some cases, there may be a cost associated with the repair," reads Apple's site.

Of course, you could also just say “sod this for a game of soldiers” and buy a proper phone made by a company which can write code for a clock.
