Siri Tip of the Day: Alarm Clock


The iPhone is a great alarm clock and Siri makes it so easy to set. Just say “Hey Siri: wake me up at…” and then the desired time. Go to the Clock app afterward and check if you want to:

You can get fancier. Maybe you want to set the alarm once, then forget about it, so the iPhone wakes you up at the same time every day. In that case, just add “every day” to the phrase, like so:

Screenshot: Siri, wake me up at 5:30 am every day.

Now you’re probably thinking “That’s too early for weekends!” So, do it this way: “Wake me up at 5:30 am on weekdays.”

Note: experimenting with the alarms can result in a LOT of alarms being set. Of course you can go to the Clock app and delete the ones you don’t want, but that can take a while.

Too many alarms!

Solve this problem the easy way– that is, ask Siri to do it. Just say “Clear all alarms.”
