Hey guys, just wanna warn you that my alarm this morning didn't ring on time and started to output sound 1 hour later then set when I unlocked my phone. Bugs appears to not happen always. Had my phone put to silence and do not disturb mode!

I do not have bedtime setup but as soon as I put my iPhone out of silent mode and DND mode, I can get the alarm normally.

I’ve had no issues with alarms on iOS 13 beta 2 and Watch OS 6 beta 2. I have alarm set through out the day and all have gone off when set.

Could this be a timezone confusion thing?

Mine are working fine except for the volume. I set it louder but after saving it reverts back to a lower volume. Tried different tones and restarting my iphone. No luck. And I use it for my morning wake up which isn't good.

The Bedtime "alarm" also doesn't work.
I logged a Feedback on this and at the top it said "more than 10 reports" or something like that. Then underneath I got "Works as currently designed"!

So, I investigated and see that in Bedtime the Wakeup has all the settings for the alarm sound and volume but the actual bell icon had a line through it. So I looked in Alarms. And there it was - an alarm that's set to my wake-up time but turned off. Toggled it on and that updated the icon in Bedtime.

This Alarm (called Wake-up Alarm) is synchronised with the Bedtime wake-up time but is enabled and disabled in the Alarm section.

Took me a little while to work it all out.

Well, that is far from obvious how they implemented that! Especially since it automatically turned off when updating. Thank you so much for this post. I was stumped and more than a little frustrated.

For anyone else looking for how to resolve this, the “Wake-up Alarm” that is set by “Bedtime” is at the very top of the list of Alarms on the Alarms tab.

Good to know. Thanks.
And... I would have a hard time noticing “wake-up alarm” in clocks app because of the grey text.

Thanks! My alarm wouldn't have gone off if not for your thread. Not sure why they changed it but totally unintuitive. I hope they change it back to the original behavior.
On the plus side, I can finally disable Bedtime Reminders!

Thanks for this reply!

For the benefit of those who need a picture, the top of the Alarms tab has a new setting called Wake-Up Alarm which mutes\unmuted the bedtime alert. Maybe it was there before, but I never noticed, or maybe it defaults to muted on the upgrade. Either way, I used regular alarms for a few days, going back to my Bedtime alerts now.
