I had a 5:30AM alarm set for this morning that absolutely didn't go off. I remember this bug occurring years ago on daylight savings day, but maybe just bad luck for me? This isn't the first time an alarm didn't fire since installing 10.1 beta - just would've hoped the public release would've gotten past this.

Have you gone into Settings > General > Time & Date, and ticked Set Automatically?

To be safe that my alarm went off this morning, I left my iPhone connected to wifi last night, not sure if that's needed though?

My alarm went off correctly at 8am too, norwegian time changed today.

I didn't have "Set Automatically" ticked in the settings under "Time and Date".

For what it's worth, my wife complained that her alarm didn't go off this morning. She initially blamed my 7 year old boy but he swears he didn't turned it off. Then we thought she might have just slept through it. Could it be the same bug?

The OP's location is listed as Philly.
That's exactly the point. If he hasn't checked the "setting time zone" checkbox in location settings, as well as "set automatically" in date & time settings, it could be that his iPhone erroneously switched to Standard Time following the rules from elsewhere (for example Europe, where the time changed yesterday).

It's set to automatic. Though that was a possibility since I flew in from the West coast the night before. But I used GPS for Uber and the time was correct when I landed.

I've been noticing on and off on my iPhone 7 Plus that some of my alarms don't go off. It's beginning to become annoying.
I checked the alarm and the one that didn't go off was highlighted white for some reason. I should've screenshot but I was too pissed about missing a medication. The white part was one there on off toggle.

Anyone ever see that? Actually I see it right now.
