How to Change the Time on an Alarm on the iPhone 5

Creating an alarm on your iPhone 5 is a great way to make sure that you are waking up on time, or to ensure that you do not miss an important event.

But schedules change, and a repeating alarm might no longer be going off at the correct time. Fortunately, you can learn how to change the time on an alarm on the iPhone 5 so that it is accurate for your updated schedule.

Another option for adjusting your iPhone alarms is to simply create a new alarm and turn off the old one.

This will allow you to keep the originally configured alarm so that you can use it later, if needed.

But having a lot of alarms on your iPhone can cause some confusion, so a lot of people will choose to edit existing options rather than create new ones. Our tutorial below will show you how to change the time on an existing alarm.
