iPhone alarms mysteriously silenced overnight leaving users oversleeping


It seems many iPhone owners had an unpleasant surprise this morning, as alarms failed to ring at their scheduled times. Reports from across social media platforms indicate that hundreds of users did not receive warnings from the default Clock app.

This feature controls volume and screen behavior based on user engagement, lowering alerts when the device sees active interaction.

Apple now works urgently to deliver a software fix addressing the glitch. In the interim, doubling up on alarms through additional devices offers a safer backup plan.
