And here’s Andy Ihnatko bringing up the counterpoint – managing to be completely wrong, and using much more words to do so, too.
Missing an alarm you set has more dire conferences than missing a phonecall you did not expect. If my phone’s muted and you call me, you will leave a message. If I set an alarm, and don’t get it – I missed something I generally can’t unmiss.
Anyway: Apple got it right the first time. It’s a mute point.
See what I did there…?
