CUPERTINO (AP) — Apple is giving iPhone users a great excuse to be late for work on Monday.

The Cupertino-based company said on its website that repeating alarms set on iPhones and some versions of the iPod touch may not recognize the end of daylight saving time and may work incorrectly shortly before or shortly after the Sunday morning time change.
