Are you tired of waking up to a blaring alarm that jolts you out of bed every morning? If so, you’ll be glad to know that adjusting the alarm volume on your iPhone is a quick and easy process. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to change the alarm volume on your iPhone, ensuring that you wake up to the perfect level of sound each day.

Step 1: Accessing the Alarm Settings

To begin, unlock your iPhone and locate the “Clock” app on your home screen. Tap on it to open the app.

Pro tip: The “Clock” app is usually located in the bottom row of icons on your home screen.

Step 2: Navigating to the Alarm Tab

Once inside the “Clock” app, ensure that you are on the “Alarm” tab at the bottom of your screen. If not, tap on “Alarm” at the bottom navigation menu to access it.


  • If you haven’t set any alarms yet, you will see a blank screen with a message saying “No Alarms.”
  • If you have set alarms before, they will be displayed here in chronological order.

Step 3: Editing an Existing Alarm or Creating a New One

To change an existing alarm’s volume, tap on it in the list. If you want to create a new alarm from scratch, tap on the “+” button in the top-right corner of your screen.


  • If editing an existing alarm, make sure it is toggled “ON” by checking the switch on the right side of the screen.
  • If creating a new alarm, you will need to set the desired time and configure other options before adjusting the volume.

Step 4: Adjusting the Alarm Volume

Once you have selected an existing alarm or created a new one, you will be taken to the alarm settings screen. Here, scroll down until you find the “Alarm Volume” option.

Pro tip: You can use your finger to slide up or down on your screen to scroll through the settings quickly.


  • The “Alarm Volume” option will be indicated by a speaker icon with sound waves.

To adjust the alarm volume, tap and hold on the slider bar next to “Alarm Volume.” While holding, slide your finger up to increase or down to decrease the volume level. The volume level will be reflected by a blue indicator on the slider bar.

Pro tip: You can also tap directly on any point of the slider bar to instantly adjust the volume level.

Step 5: Testing Your Altered Alarm Volume

To ensure that you have set your desired alarm volume correctly, tap on “Back” in the top-left corner of your screen. This will take you back to either your list of alarms or create a new alarm screen.

Note: If editing an existing alarm, it will take you back to your list of alarms. If creating a new alarm, it will take you back to create a new alarm screen.

In either case, make sure that the changes made are saved and exit out of any further settings screens. Now, set the alarm to the desired time and wait for it to go off at the appointed hour.


Congratulations! You now know how to change the alarm volume on your iPhone. By following these simple steps, you can wake up to a more pleasant and customized alarm sound that suits your preferences.

Pro tip: Remember, adjusting the alarm volume will not affect the overall ringer volume or media playback volume on your iPhone. It only modifies the volume specifically for alarms.

So go ahead, give it a try, and start each day on a more peaceful note!
