How to Turn Off Alarm on iPhone in 2022

Ever since smartphones came into being, the one thing they’ve undoubtedly replaced is an alarm clock. If you own an iPhone, you can use the Clock app to set any number of alarms with ease for several occasions throughout the day. The app lets you configure the alarm time, tone, how often it’s repeated, and if you wish to have the Snooze option to delay them. 

If you want to turn off alarms you’ve set, the following post should help you disable and remove both regular alarms and wake-up alarms on your iPhone.

How to turn off regular alarm on iPhone

By default, when you add alarms on the Clock app or when you ask Siri to do it for you, you are essentially creating regular alarms. You can create any number of alarms on your iPhone and you can configure them to repeat on one or more days of the week. To turn off these alarms on your iPhone, open the Clock app on iOS. 

Inside Clock, tap on the Alarm tab at the bottom. 

Once the app opens, under “Other” scroll to the alarm you want to disable. Alarms that are currently active will have a green-colored toggle on their right-hand side. To turn them off, tap on this toggle. 

When you do that, the toggle will switch to the off position and will turn from green to grey.

The selected alarm will no longer ring at the set time even if it was configured to repeat on another day.  

How to turn off the Wake-Up alarm inside your sleep schedule

Besides regular alarms, you can create wake-up alarms alongside your sleep schedule for any given day.

Method #1: Using the Clock app

If you want to turn off your next upcoming Wake-Up, you can use the Clock app to quickly turn it off on your iPhone. For this, open the Clock app on iOS. 

Inside Clock, tap on the Alarm tab at the bottom. 

Now, check if you can see your next alarm under “Sleep | Wake Up”. If there’s an active alarm visible, tap on Change on its right-hand side. 

In the Change Wake Up screen that appears, scroll down and turn off the Alarm toggle under “Alarm Options”. 

To confirm changes, tap on Done at the top right corner. 

You’ll now see a prompt on your screen asking whether you wish to turn off this alarm for now or disable this permanently for this sleep schedule. If you only wish to turn off the next Wake Up alarm without it affecting your sleep schedule, select Change Next Alarm Only

Clock will now disable the next wake-up alarm on your iPhone temporarily. 

Method #2: Using the Health app

If you want to turn off a Wake-Up alarm inside any one of your sleep schedules, you can do that only inside Apple’s Health app. For this, open the Health app on your iPhone. 

Inside Health, tap on the Browse tab at the bottom right corner. 

On this screen, scroll down and select Sleep

Inside the Sleep screen, scroll down to “Your Schedule” and tap on the Full Schedule & Options box. 


You can also arrive here by opening the Clock app on your iPhone. 

Inside Clock, go to the Alarm tab at the bottom and tap on Change adjacent to your next Wake Up alarm. 

On the next screen, scroll down and tap on Edit Sleep Schedule in Health


You’ll now see the Full Schedule screen inside the Health app. 

Under “Full Schedule”, tap on Edit underneath the sleep schedule whose alarm you want to turn off. 

Inside the Edit Your Schedule screen, turn off the Alarm toggle under “Alarm Options”. 

To confirm changes, tap on Done at the top right corner. 

The Wake-Up alarm for the selected sleep schedule will now be disabled permanently as it’ll appear greyed out inside the selected sleep schedule. 

You can repeat the above steps to disable Wake Up alarms for other speed schedules you have configured on the Health app. 

How to remove alarms on iPhone

If you wish to remove an alarm and not just turn it off, you can do that using the Clock and Health apps on your iPhone. 

Method #1: Remove a regular alarm

If you have a regular alarm, you can delete it from the Clock app on your iPhone. To do that, open the Clock app on iOS. 

Inside Clock, go to the Alarm tab at the bottom. 

On this screen, locate the alarm you want to delete and swipe it towards the left.

You can now remove it from your iPhone by tapping on Delete on the right-hand side. 

If you want to remove multiple alarms from Clock, tap on Edit at the top left corner. 

Now, tap on the red minus (-) icon on the left-hand side of the alarm you want to remove. 

Next, tap on Delete on the right to remove it. 

You can repeat these steps to remove more alarms from Clock. When you’re done removing unwanted alarms, tap on Done at the top left corner to confirm changes. 

Method #2: Remove a Wake-Up alarm

If you have a sleep schedule configured on your iPhone, you can remove its alarm from the Health app. For this, open the Health app on your iPhone. 

Inside Health, tap on the Browse tab at the bottom right corner. 

On this screen, scroll down and select Sleep

Inside the Sleep screen, scroll down to “Your Schedule” and tap on the Full Schedule & Options box. 


You can also arrive here by opening the Clock app on your iPhone. 

Inside Clock, go to the Alarm tab at the bottom and tap on Change adjacent to your next Wake Up alarm. 

On the next screen, scroll down and tap on Edit Sleep Schedule in Health


You’ll now see the Full Schedule screen inside the Health app. 

Under “Full Schedule”, tap on Edit underneath the sleep schedule whose alarm you want to remove. 

Inside the Edit Your Schedule screen, tap on Delete Schedule at the bottom. 

The alarm and the schedule will be deleted from your iPhone and it will no longer ring at the previously set time. 

That’s all you need to know about turning off alarms on your iPhone.
