More About Deleting Alarms on an iPhone 13
Another way that you can delete an alarm on the iPhone 13 is to go to the Clock > Alarm screen, touch the Edit button at the top-left corner of the screen, then tap the red circle to the left of the alarm that you want to remove.
You can then tap the Delete button to remove the alarm from the device.
Note that any alarms you delete from your iPhone will be permanently deleted. If you want an alarm that goes off at the same time, on the same days, then you will need to re-create it from scratch.
If you only want to change something about the alarm, you can tap the Edit link at the top-left of the Alarm screen, select the alarm, then change settings like:
- Time – you can switch the time at which the alarm goes off with the scroll wheel at the top of the screen.
- Repeat – you can add or remove days for which you want the alarm to sound at the indicated time.
- Label – give the alarm a more descriptive name so you can find it more easily.
- Sound – switch the tone or song that plays when the alarm goes off.
- Snooze – choose whether or not there is a Snooze button when the alarm goes off.
You will note that there is also a Delete Alarm at the bottom of the screen when you are in the alarm editing mode.
You may want to delete an alarm on your iPhone if you no longer need it, if it was set incorrectly, or if you want to create a new alarm with different settings. Additionally, if you are troubleshooting an issue with your alarms and need to start fresh, you may want to delete all of them and set up new ones.
The alarm clock feature on your iPhone allows you to configure alarms that will sound at a specific time. Once set, the alarm will sound at the designated time, even if the phone is locked or in Do Not Disturb mode.
You can set alarms to repeat on specific days of the week or to only go off one time. The alarm sound can be customized to use a variety of built-in tones, or you can use a song from your Apple Music library.
In addition to the standard alarm option, the iPhone also includes a “Bedtime” feature that can remind you to go to sleep at a certain time, and will wake you up at a designated time in the morning. The iPhone Clock also includes a World Clock, Timer, and Stopwatch tab.
You can set, edit or delete alarms by opening the Clock app on your iPhone, then tapping on the Alarm tab at the bottom of the screen. Here you can add new alarms, turn existing alarms on or off, and delete alarms that you no longer need.
The Alarm feature on iPhone can also be controlled with Siri commands in addition to manually navigating the menus by tapping, so you can set, check or turn off alarms using just your voice.
Below is a list of some of the Siri commands you can use to interact with the alarm clock on your iPhone:
- “Hey Siri, set an alarm for xxx time”
- “Hey Siri, wake me up at xxx time tomorrow”
- “Hey Siri, turn off my alarm”
- “Hey Siri, snooze my alarm”
- “Hey Siri, what are my alarms for today?”
- “Hey Siri, delete my 6am alarm”
- “Hey Siri, change my 5am alarm to 5:30am”
You can also use these commands to set, change, or check alarms with your voice in addition to the manual navigation options that we outlined earlier in the article.
