How to Change Time to Military Time on iPhone

If you prefer military time format on your iPhone, you can easily change the time display settings to suit your preference. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to change the time format to military time on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open Settings

To begin, tap on the Settings icon on your iPhone’s home screen. The Settings app is represented by a gear icon.

Step 2: Locate Clock Settings

In the Settings menu, scroll down and look for the Clock option. It is usually located in the third group of settings.

Step 3: Open Clock Settings

Tapping on Clock will open a new page with various clock-related options.

Step 4: Select 24-Hour Time Format

In the Clock settings, you will find an option called 24-Hour Time. Tap on it to toggle between ON and OFF.

  • If it’s already ON:
  • If the 24-Hour Time option is already enabled (indicated by a green background), your iPhone is already set to display time in military format. You can skip the remaining steps and enjoy viewing time in military format!

  • If it’s OFF:
  • If the 24-Hour Time option is disabled (indicated by a gray background), tap on it once to enable it. The toggle should turn green, indicating that your iPhone will now display time in military format.


Enabling the 24-Hour Time format will change the time display throughout your iPhone, including the lock screen, home screen, and all apps that show time.

Step 5: Verify the Time Format

Exit the Settings app by pressing the Home button or swiping up from the bottom of the screen if you have an iPhone without a Home button. Take a look at your iPhone’s home screen or lock screen to verify that the time is now displayed in military format.

Congratulations! You have successfully changed the time format to military time on your iPhone. Enjoy using your device with this new time display setting!

Remember, if you ever wish to switch back to the standard 12-hour format, simply follow these steps again and toggle off the 24-Hour Time option.


In this tutorial, we walked you through the process of changing your iPhone’s time format to military time. By following these simple steps, you can easily switch between military and standard time formats based on your preference. Now you can enjoy viewing time in a format that suits you best!
