NEW YORK (AP) -- Users of Apple's iPhone missed church and were late for yoga Sunday when their phones bungled the one-hour "spring forward" to daylight savings time that went into effect overnight Saturday.

In the latest clock woe for Apple's chic iPhone, some users' phones fell back one hour instead of springing forward, making the time displayed on the iPhone two hours off.

For all of their fancy features, these paragons of high-tech have had trouble telling time. A clock glitch prevented alarms from sounding on New Year's Day and the devices also struggled to adjust to the end of daylight savings time back in November.

The solution is simple: Shut down and restart the phone or switch the phone to "airplane mode" and then back.
