    So I have a repeating alarm set to go off on the weekdays, but it's not automatically turning on as it should. Am I doing something wrong or...?

    I have my alarm set to repeat every weekday. As I suspected, it didn't go off today like it was supposed to... What am I doing wrong?

    I have repeating alarms as well that didn't go off his morning. Just adding my two cents to see if this is a widespread issue.

    By repeating you mean you set 1 alarm to go off at 7pm , then its automatically going to set for ON the next day ?


    My alarm is working fine. I just swipe and press something to turn it off. Note, I do not press the actual switch in the clock-program.

    My alarms go off without any problems. Actually I have two that go off 15 minutes from each other. They are both set from Monday-Friday. Even the snooze works. ;)

    1 alarm set for 6am set to repeat MTWTF. Doesn't auto turn on the next day after I hit ok when it goes off the first time. And when the first alarm is on, it doesn't get auto turned on either, I have to manually go into the clock app and enable the alarm.

    I told Siri to wake me up every weekday at half past six, worked fine.

    Then one night I stayed up longer and asked Siri to wake me at half past seven the following day. I was impressed that she asked me back which date (as it was already past midnight).

    So far, so impressive (IMO), just that she woke me at 6:30 and 7:30 the next morning. Is there even a way to change the weekly time for only one day?

    Yeah definitely a bug. Ill try doing what the poster above me did and have Siri do it for me. Might be a workaround. I'll report back with my results.

    Have this problem. I set an alarm for workdays at 6:35. 4 days ago i downloaded sleep cycle app so i turned off the first alarm but at 6:35 it was active. Next day i deleted the alarm and its been 3 days now its still on at 6:35 again.
