How to Turn Off iPhone Alarms
There are times when it’s handy to be able to turn an alarm off on your iPhone without touching the device. Here’s how to do it.
Apple’s Clock app lets you create and edit iPhone alarms. These can include wake-up alarms that repeat on certain days of the week or a custom sound.
Go to Settings
If you want to turn off your iPhone alarm, there are several options that you can try. These include disabling snooze, switching to a third-party alarm app, and deleting your alarms.
Most of the time, a problem with an iPhone alarm is caused by something that’s software-related. This means that there’s an incompatibility issue between your iPhone and the app or something else on the device, so it’s important to identify the problem before you can fix it.
First, check to see if you have an update installed on your device. You can do this by going to Settings > General and tapping Software Update. If you have an older version of iOS, you can also update it wirelessly or by plugging your phone into your computer and downloading the latest firmware through iTunes.
Next, go to the Clock app on your device and open the Alarm tab. From there, you can tap on the alarm you want to turn off and swipe to the left to delete it. You can also make new iPhone alarms by tapping on the plus button in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
You can also disable snooze on your alarm by going to the Edit screen for the alarm you want to change and deactivating the toggle labeled “Snooze.” The same process applies to changing other alarm settings.
Scroll down to Alarms
If you’re not a big fan of your iPhone alarm going off and you want to turn it off, it’s easy to do. You can do it from within the Clock app and you don’t need to enter a passcode or swipe your screen to do it.
The alarm clock app is an excellent place to set and manage your iPhone’s wake-up time. It’s easy to add new alarms, and you can even edit existing ones. If you like, you can also create repeating alarms that are set to repeat on certain days.
Some people love their iPhone’s click wheel for setting alarms, but Apple has replaced the button with a numeric keypad in iOS 14. You can still use the scroll wheel and it will work just as before, but you can also use the new keyboard to type in the time.
This can save you a lot of time, but you might be frustrated that your alarm isn’t set exactly to the hour. Instead of typing in 4:00 or 5:00, you could accidentally set it to 5:59, which isn’t the ideal way to start your day.
If you’ve had this problem for a while, it might be worth updating to the latest version of iOS. It could fix a glitch or bug that might have been keeping your iPhone’s alarm from working correctly.
It’s also possible that your iPhone has a sleep schedule that is causing it to not go off. If that’s the case, it might be a good idea to go back and delete your bedtime or wind down alarms in the Health app.
Tap the alarm you want to turn off
The iPhone’s clock app lets you set an alarm to go off at a specific time. You can also create a recurring alarm that repeats on different days each week. You can also create a wake-up alarm to help you get up in the morning, even if you don’t sleep well that night.
The clock app is a great way to set a specific time for your alarm, and it’s easy to customize it. You can change the alarm’s sound and snooze options, and you can even add a backlight to your alarm to make it easier to see when you’re awake.
But sometimes, you may not want an alarm to go off at all, even if it’s set to repeat. For example, if you have a morning event or appointment that’s going to be important for you, you don’t want the alarm to go off right before it starts.
Luckily, there’s an easy way to turn off the alarm on your iPhone without having to go into Settings or the Clock app. All you have to do is tap the alarm you want to turn off, and it’ll be dismissed.
If you’re worried about hearing your alarm, you can also choose to have it vibrate only instead of ringing. This works if you have Bluetooth headphones attached to your phone, and it’s a convenient option for those who prefer to have the vibrations of their smartphone be their only sounds in the morning.
You can adjust the volume of your alarm to suit your preferences, and you can also set a different ringtone for each alarm. This makes it easy to set the same ringtone for multiple alarms, and it’s a good option if you have several different ringtones that you use for different kinds of alarms.
Swipe to the left
Whether you’re trying to fall asleep after a long day or just want to get up early, your iPhone’s alarm can be a nuisance. Fortunately, it’s fairly easy to turn off an iPhone alarm without touching your phone.
There are a few different ways to do this, but the most common way is to swipe to the left on the alarm display. Swiping to the left is a little more complicated than just swiping up and down, but it’s a great way to disable your alarm without touching your phone.
Another common use for swipe gestures is to move between open apps. In iOS 12, each app is displayed as a card in the Application Switcher, and you can swipe from one to the other to bring them to the foreground. You can also swipe left or right along these cards to view other open apps.
A swipe to the left can also be used to view all of your incoming text messages in one fell swoop. It’s a nice feature that many users don’t know about, and it can be helpful to have in case you receive several important emails or texts at once.
Despite the simplicity of this gesture, it’s not always obvious to new iPhone users how to do it. The best place to start is by going to Settings and scrolling down to Messages.
On the screen that appears, tap the Swipe Options button, and then select a swipe action from the list. This will show you which swipe gestures are supported and available on your iPhone, as well as the actions that they can perform.
You can also swipe down from the top left corner of your device to access Notification Center, which isn’t actually an alarm but it’s a very handy way to view any notifications that are cluttering up your home screen or other apps on your device.
