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. ;)

mine works as well this morning. Restarting your phone and testing some is my only suggestion.

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?
