More Information About iPhone Alarms
You can create multiple alarms on your iPhone, and they don’t always need to be for getting up in the morning.
For example, you might need to take some medication in the evening. Alarms are perfect for this, as you can configure them to go off daily.
Some of the other options that you can set on your iPhone include:
- The time
- Repeat – the days on which the alarm should go off
- Label – this is where you give the alarm a descriptive name
- Sound – select the tone that will play when the alarm sounds
- Snooze – select whether or not there will be a snooze option on this alarm
Once you start using the alarm feature regularly, you might find that you have created too many of them.
You can delete an alarm on your iPhone by going to Clock > Alarms > then swiping left on the alarm to get rid of it and tapping the Delete button.
