Apple finally fixes the problem that causes the iPhone alarm to fail

Lifestyle


Apple finally had a wake-up call.

For many months, iPhone users have complained about a technical issue that caused configured alarms not to sound.

“This has been probably the third or fourth day in a row that my alarm hasn’t gone off,” TikToker Reid Manning recently complained.

Another person on TikTok said they spent half a year trying to get to the bottom of Alarmgate.

This week, Apple finally confirmed to Today that an ongoing issue is causing alarms to work silently.

The most common version of the problem has to do with a subtle setting called “Mindful Attention.”

In January, Apple published that Attention Aware allows an iPhone to “check whether you’re paying attention to your device and automatically take action.” “Intelligently activates” a phone’s camera, whether FaceID is enabled or not.

Some Reddit users (who were helping a parent who was chronically late to the school pick-up line due to the issue) have noticed that Attention Aware has a fatal flaw.

Many have complained that you can get the false impression that a person is looking at your phone and it will automatically turn off your important wake-up jingle.

The attention features of an iPhone have caused alarms to not sound in many cases.

The way to turn off the feature, according to Apple, is to go to settings, then “Face ID & Password” and turn off the “Attention Features” switch.

In a March guide that Apple created for setting alarms, the company also recommends checking the ringtone volume in “sound and touch.”
