iPhone Alarm Troubleshooting Tips

The full extent of the problem's reach remains unclear. However, for those experiencing it, a quick check of settings may prove beneficial. Ensuring the ringtone and alert volume sliders are up under Settings > Sound & Haptics is recommended. Accidental reduction of alarm volume may occur if the "Change with Buttons" option is toggled on, warranting consideration to turn it off.

Apple's Response

According to a post by Joanna Stern from the Wall Street Journal on social media platform X, Apple has acknowledged the issue and confirmed awareness of the problem. The tech giant based in Cupertino is reportedly actively developing a remedy.

User Insights

Some social media users have speculated that the problem is linked to the Attention Aware accessibility feature on iPhone. This feature, designed to lower alert volume when the user is actively engaged with the device, may be erroneously detecting attention and lowering alarm volumes, even during sleep. However, Apple has not officially verified this as the root cause.

As a temporary solution, affected users can attempt to disable the Attention Aware feature. This can be done by navigating to Settings > Face ID & Passcode > Attention Aware Features and switching it off.

However, first time users faced difficulties in completing the reset process due to high traffic volumes on Apple's recovery platform.
