How to Change Alarm Volume on iPhone (3 Ways)

If you want to change the volume of your iPhone’s alarm, there are several ways to do it. Here are three quick and easy ways that don’t require you to open any apps, making it easier to wake up on time.

How to change alarm volume on iPhone

The below guide works for all iPhone series i.e iPhone 4... iPhone 12, iPhone 13... iPhone 14 and so on. We'll update this article if a new feature is unveiled.

1) Turn Volume Down

If you're like me, you probably wake up with an overactive or oversensitive alarm. Whether it's too loud or just annoying, not being able to find a way to make the sound quieter can be frustrating. One option is to turn your phone upside down so that when the alarm goes off, you'll have to flip it back over to get out of bed.

Another option is to set your alarms for something earlier in the morning and try hitting snooze for five minutes instead of two minutes- this way, you'll have more time before your next alarm goes off.

One final option is changing your iPhone's settings from a high-volume ringtone (or vibration) setting to a low-volume ringtone (or vibration) setting.

2) Access Sounds

To get to the sound settings page, tap General in your Settings menu. Scroll down until you see Sounds. Tap it. The first option on the next screen is Alarm Volume.

You can adjust this setting with a slider or type in a specific number for decibels, after you’ve adjusted the settings, tap Save at the top of the screen, as always, don’t forget to turn off your phone before putting it back into your bag.

The second option is Vibrate. Tapping it will take you to the Vibrate Screen On/Off menu where you can choose between Off, On (or Always), and Only in Silent Mode. Select what's best for your needs.

Lastly, we have Ringtone Type, which lets you decide if you want your ringtones to be Buzzer, Chimes, or Bongos. If you want them all set the same way, then just select anyone and hit Done from the top of the screen. Once you've made these changes, save them by tapping Done at the top right corner of your screen.

3) Change Alarm Volume

If you want to know how to change the alarm volume on iPhone, there are several ways. But before you do anything else, try playing your alarm sound and touching the speaker icon.

You'll be able to adjust it right then. If that doesn't work, however, go into the settings app, scroll down until you see Do Not Disturb While Alarm is Ringing., and turn the slider either off or up.

How to Change Alarm Volume iPhone

  1. Navigate to Settings > Sounds & Haptics.
  2. Ringer and Alerts is where you can adjust the volume. As you drag the slider left or right, an alert will play, so you can hear how the volume changes.
  3. Use your device's volume buttons to change the volume of the alarm.

At last, if you find that an app is still too loud or quiet, you can remove it from your alerts by pressing and holding it until they jiggle. Then drag any unwanted apps into a folder at the bottom of your screen. You can always get them back later.


Q: Can you change Volume on Alarm?

In order to adjust the volume for an alarm, open the Clock app, tap the Alarm tab, then tap Edit. Tap in the hours of when you want your alarm set to go off. You'll be taken back a few screens where you'll see several tabs, one being labeled Sounds.

Underneath that is a slider bar with numbers ranging from 1-20. Move this bar up or down with your finger until you reach the level of sound that you prefer as your alarm tone. You can also select None if you would like no sound at all.

When finished, press the green checkmark button at the top right hand corner of the screen to save these changes.

Q: How do I separate ringtone and alarm volume on Iphone?

Swipe up from the bottom of your screen to open Control Center. Tap the settings icon (the gear) in the upper-right corner of the screen. Scroll down to Sounds & Haptics, then find your Ringer And Alerts menu settings.

Your slider should now be on Silent, but if it's not, drag it all the way to the left. Now tap the slider next to Alarm Volume and slide it right or left to adjust how loud you want your alarm sound to be. When you're done, go back one step and tap the back arrow in the upper-left corner of the screen. Now you can enjoy a much quieter morning wake-up call.

Q: Is alarm controlled by ringer or volume?

When the phone is set to Ringer Alarm Mode, you can only adjust the volume by turning the ringer off or up. If you need to be able to lower the ringer volume while setting it as an alarm, then choose Silent Alarm Mode.

It will allow you to set a timer for how long before it turns into a silent mode, as well as its loudness level. Choose your desired sound of the alarm in the Sound Settings > Alarms section.

To access this, tap Settings and then tap General. Scroll down until you see Alarms and tap on that. Now select which ringtone/sounds from your device you want to use for alarms.

Then swipe left over the alarm that's selected, tap Edit, select a different sound, and repeat the process with other alarms if necessary, but don't forget to turn your music back on, when finished editing the sounds, scroll down to Done and hit Save Changes, and that's all there is to it.


There are a few different ways you can adjust the alarm volume for your iPhone. You can either use the default settings that come with the phone or go into your settings and make adjustments to suit your needs. If you find that your current setting is not quite what you need, then it’s easy enough to experiment with different volumes until you find something that works for you.
