If you’re wondering why your iPhone’s alarm is so loud, you’re not alone. Many users have reported this issue in the Apple help forums and Apple has not yet commented on it. Usually, the alarm sounds for around 15 minutes, before you snooze and it rings again. If you don’t have supersonic hearing, you may even miss it. In this case, you have a few options to fix the problem.
Disable Attention Aware
If you’re sick of your iPhone alarm being too loud, you can disable Attention Aware on your iPhone. This feature detects whether or not you’re looking at your phone and lowers the volume of notifications. This is useful when you’re trying to fall asleep or if you’re on a tight schedule. You can disable Attention Aware by going into Settings > Face ID & Passcode and tapping on the Attention Aware slider.
Disabling Attention Aware will prevent your iPhone from automatically adjusting the volume of its alarm, so you can sleep through the sound. If you want to disable the alarm sound, you can go to Settings > Sounds and Haptics. On an iPhone X, you can disable Attention Aware by going into the Settings app and choosing the “Disable Attention Aware” option.
You can also disable the Attention Aware feature by going into Settings > Face ID & Attention. This will turn off the Attention Aware feature on iPhone X and later.
Disable third-party alarm clocks
If you’re having problems with your iPhone’s alarm, one simple solution is to disable third-party alarm clocks. This step will prevent your alarm from ringing repeatedly because it won’t be set at the correct time. Also, make sure to check that your iPhone’s alarm is not set to repeat, otherwise it might be set to the wrong day and time.
One possible reason that your iPhone doesn’t make the right sound is because third-party alarm clocks use the speaker system of your iPhone. In these situations, you may want to turn the volume up a bit. To do this, open the Clock app on iOS. On the bottom, select the “Alarm” tab. On the left side, tap on “Other.” If your alarm is set to repeat, make sure the toggle is set to off.
Another option is to disable the alarm app. This app lets you set an alarm, but it does not work with the built-in alarm system. This is a safer option, especially if you’re easily forgetful.
Disable external speakers
If you are using an external speaker to play music or set an alarm on your iPhone, you may find that it does not work. If this happens, try turning off and then on Bluetooth to resolve the problem. Sometimes, a glitch in the software can prevent the external speakers from working. In this case, it may be helpful to try turning off the connected devices and restarting the iPhone.
Another option is to use earbuds or headphones to set the alarm. However, you should keep in mind that sleeping with headphones may affect your quality of sleep. You may also cause them to wear out if you are not careful. Alternatively, you can use earbuds and play music through the speakers. However, the problem with iPhone alarms is that you cannot set it to play through headphones only. If you use AirPods or headphones, you can enable the speaker option for the alarm.
If you have a Bluetooth speaker, you can use it as a speaker. Bluetooth devices are great for connecting to your iPhone. However, if you do not have one, you can connect your iPhone to a wireless Bluetooth speaker. You can also pair the speakers with your phone’s microphone.
Turn up volume without increasing alarm volume
If you want to turn up the volume without increasing the volume of your alarm, you can do so with a few simple steps. First, you should turn off the Bluetooth that is connected to your iPhone. Bluetooth can sometimes make your alarm sound too high or too low. You can turn it off by going to Settings > Sounds & Haptics.
Next, you should turn off the Attention-Aware setting, which may be related to FaceID. You can toggle this feature off in Settings > Face ID & Passcode > Attention-Aware Features. If you are not comfortable with this setting, you can toggle it off in the same screen. Apple is expected to introduce a new speaker called the Homepod. The speaker will likely include an alarm feature.
