Many of us rely on an alarm to wake us up in the morning, and so many of us own iPhones. We expect the most out of our iPhone’s so why wouldn’t we want to use our iPhones as our alarm clock. Most already do, but sometimes not all features are easily accessible or easy to use. One of those alarm clock features is modifying the snooze time.
When you hit the snooze button on your iPhone, you are given nine minutes before the alarm would sound again. Nine minutes may not be ideal for some as you may want a long snooze or a shorter snooze. The only way to adjust that setting is to customize it.
As unknown as this feature may have been, the process for setting your custom snooze time is quite easy. The first step is to disable the snooze setting on the currently chosen alarm. For this example, we will set the snooze period to 6 minutes. Remember you can choose more or less time. It is completely up to you.
There are other ways you can achieve the same goal of changing your snooze period longer or shorter than the defaulted nine minutes. You can use third party alarm clocks that you can download on your iPhone, and these apps offer customizable snooze alarms. Three of those are the sleep cycle app, the progressive alarm, and the alarm app. Each of these snooze apps has their instructed ways on creating a custom snooze period.
As a quick example, we will go through the instructions on setting up a custom snooze for the sleep cycle third-party app.
