Your iPhone SE has a lot of features that are accessible through app downloads, but there are a bunch that are on the device by default. One of these is a feature-rich Clock app, so you might be wondering how to create an alarm on your iPhone SE.
The ease with which you can set an alarm on a smartphone, coupled with the fact that our phones are often near us when we go to sleep at night, makes them a perfect choice as an alarm clock substitute.
But there isn’t a specific “Alarm” or “Alarm Clock” app on your iPhone SE, which can leave you wondering how exactly to go about creating an alarm on the device. Fortunately this can be accomplished through the default Clock app, and you can even choose some setting options to control what the alarm sounds like, when it goes off, and whether or not you have the option to snooze the alarm. Our tutorial below will show you how to create an alarm on the iPhone SE.
