Step by Step Tutorial: Changing Days for an Alarm on iPhone

Before diving into the steps, let’s understand what we’re about to do. By changing the days for an alarm, we can set specific days for it to go off. This is perfect for creating a custom alarm schedule that fits your unique routine.

Step 1: Open the Clock app

Open the Clock app on your iPhone to get started.

The Clock app is usually found on your home screen or in the Utilities folder. If you can’t find it, swipe down on your home screen and use the search feature to locate it.

Step 2: Tap on ‘Alarm’

Once in the Clock app, tap on the ‘Alarm’ tab at the bottom of the screen.

Make sure you’re on the ‘Alarm’ section and not ‘World Clock’ or ‘Timer’ as these sections won’t have the alarm settings you need.

Step 3: Select the alarm you want to edit

Find the alarm you wish to change and tap ‘Edit’ in the upper left corner, then tap on the alarm.

You might have several alarms set, so make sure you choose the correct one you want to adjust. It’s possible to have different alarms for different days – so keep that in mind!

Step 4: Tap ‘Repeat’

On the alarm’s details screen, tap ‘Repeat’ to set the days.

You’ll see a list of days, from Sunday to Saturday. Here’s where you can choose which days the alarm should go off.

Step 5: Choose the days

Select or deselect the days you want the alarm to be active.

You can tap multiple days if you want the alarm to repeat on those days. A checkmark will appear next to the days you’ve selected.

Step 6: Tap ‘Back’ and then ‘Save’

After selecting the days, tap ‘Back’ in the upper left corner, and then tap ‘Save’ to confirm the changes.

The alarm will now only go off on the days you’ve selected. You can come back and change this anytime if your schedule changes.

After completing these steps, your alarm will be set to go off on the days you’ve chosen. No more being jolted awake on your days off!
