iPhone Alarm Glitch to Void Phone Warranty

Who would believe that opening your iPhone’s clock could void the warranty of your whole phone? This is another false information passed on to the internet by a false twitter account (@ceoSteveJobs) of Apple’s CEO, Steve Jobs. His alleged tweet was:

“Until Apple issues an official fix for the iPhone alarm glitch, please do not open your iPhone’s clock app. Doing so may void the warranty.”


After the iPhone alarm glitch that occurred on New Year’s day, where iPhone owners were fuming across the Internet complaining that their beloved handheld’s one-time alarm ceased to work at the stroke of midnight on January 1, 2011 (you can read the whole article here), this fraudulent twitter account again buzzed all iPhone users out there.


It could be recalled that this is not the first time that this false twitter account have caused havoc in the virtual world. Just last year, when Apple’s iPhone  faced a lot of user complaints regarding the phone’s poor reception and reports of dropped calls due to its defective black antenna, this poser tweet:
“We may have to recall the new iPhone. This, I did not expect.”


This false tweet before caused ever more confusion when it was published as real and actual news by The Daily Mail.
Clearly, this person is just taking advantage of this sizzling situation to draw public attention. I just hope that no one will publish his tweet again as real news. In the end, it should be noted that Steve Jobs doesn’t have a Twitter account. J
