    iPhone 6, IOS 8.1.2. There are numerous alarms going off. Is there a way to identify them?

    Pull down from the top and look at the notifications

    Pardon me for being stupid (I'm a newbie and wish it came with a manual), but if I hear two fairly quick buzzes, all I have to do is wake it up and pull down from the top and the notification I see will be the source of it? Wow, that is easy! Thanks,

    Larry, you don't need a manual to figure out an iPhone.
    That's the beauty of it and the reason ios is so successful.

    Well, there must be more to it. I disabled most notifications. That seems to possibly helped a bit, but I'm still getting some alarms. When I turn on the display and use a fingerprint and then pull down the notifications panel, I get some displays, but nothing which should cause an alarm. For example, I use Evernote and that is on the display panel, but just the application, nothing which needs attention - it offers to show me recently displayed notes. The other thing is the calendar. I use "Sunrise" but all that is showing is that it's someone's birthday. Does that cause an alarm? I want to know about birthdays but I don't want to cause alarms.

    It buzzes at me in the morning. Tomorrow, perhaps I will turn off all notifications. Maybe that will work. However, that would be like using a tank to kill a mosquito. I really don't want to do that. I would like to use alarms when I decide.

    I still think it needs a manual! Some things are not intuitive.

    I think I figured it out. The sound I heard was "heartbleed" (two quick buzzes). It didn't specifically occur at fixed time, it was heard whenever new mail came in. Apparently, I had set it to do that in Settings -> Notifications -> Mail. At least that's what I think. When I go to bed at night, I turn off sound but it must be that "heartbleed" being a buzzing noise, continues. Anyway I turned it off so we'll see if that works. Thanks for the help.
