You can create alarms on your iPhone either directly through the Clock app on the device, or by telling Siri that you want to set a new alarm. Whether these alarms are meant to wake you up in the morning, alert you to an activity that you need to perform, or signal any other type of time-based event, the ability to use your iPhone as an alarm clock can be very convenient.
However, this can also lead to a situation where you have dozens of alarms on your iPhone, making it difficult for you to manually locate one that you need to enable or edit. Fortunately you can delete an alarm on your iPhone 7 to remove any of your current alarms that you don’t need anymore.
