How to Label an Alarm on the iPhone 6 Plus

When you start using the alarm feature on your iPhone, you may initially only have one or two alarms set.

A small number of alarms are simple to manage, but it can become a little more difficult when you have alarms that go off at the same time on different days.

This can lead you to accidentally set the wrong alarm, which can be problematic for your schedule.

One effective way to manage a lot of alarms is to give them a name. iPhone alarms can be edited to include a label or name that display under the alarm time on the menu.

That way you can scroll through the list of alarms until you find the correct one without needing to worry that you picked the alarm that goes off at 6 AM on Tuesday and Thursday instead of the one that goes off at 6 AM on Monday and Friday.
