The snooze feature has been a popular feature on alarms for a long time.
I use it all the time to get just a few extra minutes of sleep, so being able to use it on the Phone is important to me.
Our tutorial below will show you how to turn on the snooze feature for an iPhone alarm.
How to Change the iPhone Snooze Setting

Our guide continues below with additional information on how to snooze an alarm on the iPhone 5, including pictures of these steps.
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.

Now that you know how to enable the snooze feature for your iPhone alarm you will be able to use this whenever you want a few more minutes of sleep.
When the alarm goes off, you will be able to touch a part of the screen to snooze the alarm. It will then go off a few minutes later.
While you have the option of creating multiple alarms on your iPhone, you might prefer to edit an existing alarm instead.
