How To Check Alarm Volumes on iPhone

Iphone Alarms

Setting the alarm on your iPhone is pretty straightforward. However, if your alarm volume is too low, you might miss it, or if it is too loud, you could be jarred by it. So, to ensure your iPhone alarm volume is set to the right level, you should check the volume level. But how do you check your alarm volume on an iPhone? 

Quick Answer

Technically, you can check the alarm volume on your iPhone in two ways. You can either check your alarm volume through the “Sounds” menu in Settings or toggle the option that changes the ringer volume keys into the volume control for your alarm. 

If you want to avoid sleeping through your alarm, you should always check that your alarm volume is set to the correct level. While at it, ensure you disconnect headphones if connected to your iPhone. You should also ensure your alarm sound is not set to “None”, as this would only cause your alarm to vibrate

How To Check and Adjust the Alarm Volume on an iPhone

There are multiple ways you can check and adjust the alarm volume on your iPhone, depending on what you find most convenient. However, you need to find the right option in the Settings app for both methods. Below are the tips to check the alarm volume on your iPhone. 

Method #1: Using Settings 

You can manually check and adjust the alarm volume on your iPhone in the Settings app. By doing this, you will get access to more options as you can even turn up or down the “Ringer” and “Alert” levels and adjust the sounds and vibration patterns on different alerts, including the alarm.  

Here’s how to manually check and adjust an iPhone’s alarm volume.

  1. Open the Settings app from the Home page, or ask Siri to launch the Settings app. 
  2. Click on the “Sounds” option. 
  3. The slider under the “Ringer” and “Alerts” sections is the volume level for your alarm. 
  4. To adjust the alarm volume, drag the slider left to reduce the volume and right to increase the volume. 

Method #2: Using Volume Keys 

Another option you can use to check and adjust the alarm volume on your iPhone is the volume keys at the side of your iPhone. However, it is worth noting that the volume keys would not adjust the alarm volume by default. Instead, the volume keys control the media volume for music, videos, etc. 

Here’s how to check and adjust the alarm volume on an iPhone using the volume keys.

  1. Open the Settings app from the Home page, or ask Siri to launch the Settings app. 
  2. Click on the “Sounds” option. 
  3. Under the “Ringer” and “Alert” slider, toggle the “Change the Button” option. 
  4. Close the Settings app, and press the volume down or up button to adjust the volume settings.  
Keep in Mind

If Do Not Disturb or the Ring/Silent switch is enabled, it wouldn’t affect the alarm sound on your iPhone, and it would still sound.

Conclusion 

Setting the alarm does not guarantee you will be alerted by it when it’s time. You should always check the alarm volume to ensure it is at an ideal level to wake you up when you are deep asleep. If the alarm sound is not satisfactory, you can always change it to something more suitable by going to the Clock app on your iPhone. 

Frequently Asked Questions 

How do I change my alarm sound? 

If your iPhone’s alarm sound is loud enough or you don’t like the sound, you can always change it to whatever you like. You can even set a different alarm sound for different alarms you set.

To change the alarm sound on your iPhone, tap on the Clock app and use the “+” symbol at the top right corner of your screen to create a new alarm. Set a time you want the alarm to go off, whether or not you want it to repeat, a label, and then click on the “Sound” option.

From the pop-up option, scroll through the option and choose a sound you like. When you are done, click on the “Save” button at the top right corner of your screen. 

How do I make the alarm volume louder? 

If your alarm is too low, adjust the volume to the highest. If the alarm is still too low, then you should change the alarm sound to something quite loud. If you are still unsatisfied with the alarm volume level, you can connect your iPhone to an external speaker, so when the alarm goes off, it will sound through the speaker, amplifying the sound.
