When you create a new alarm on your iPhone 13, one of the items that you can configure is whether or not that alarm will have a snooze option.
It usually seems like a good idea t keep it turned on, as there are buttons on the alarm screen that you can use to either turn off the alarm, or to snooze it for a few more minutes.
So if you don’t want to use snooze, then you can simply not touch the button.
But the presence of that Snooze button might be a little too tempting, so you may not want to give yourself that option.
Our tutorial below will show you how to disable snooze for an alarm on your iPhone so that the Snooze button’s not available when the alarm is going off.
