How to Snooze an Alarm on the iPhone 5

The “snooze” feature of an alarm is one that many people like to use to help them wake up. Your alarm goes off, and you have the option of delaying it for a few more minutes. This gives you a little extra time to come to terms with getting out of bed, which can help your day start a little better. The snooze option is available with your iPhone alarms, and you can add it to an existing alarm.

The steps in this guide will show you how to edit an existing alarm so that you can add the snooze feature to it. We will also show you what it looks like when the alarm goes off so that you can see how you need to select the snooze option.
