I have noticed Siri can't set an alarm for the future. You can't say "Set alarm for 8am on June 12, 2015.". And I just tried asking Siri to set an alarm for this Tuesday, so 2 days in advance, and she said she couldn't set an alarm for more than one day in advance. I know you can set reminders for advance dates, but reminders aren't alarms. Why do you think apple has never enabled Siri to do this? And why did they make the clock app so that you couldn't set an alarm for a specific date, just a specific day of the week. ---------- plus alarms are loud. Reminders, though very helpful, aren't loud like alarms need to be.
