apple alarm rant
the alarm system on apple devices is terrible — i find that at minimum once a month (usually more) my alarm won’t go off.
this has happening to me over the past 6 years and it’s happened across four different apple devices: ipad mini, iphone 5c, iphone 6 and now my current iphone 8.
it happens in all different ways, most of the time a family member will wake me up & i’ll immediatelt check my phone to see my screen normal & the alarm turned off. it has happened occasionally where i turn on the phone and my screen flashes ‘alarm’ but no sound, nor did the screen light up on its own.
this i just a straight up rant bc i’ve just about had it, especially after i missed a very important and urgent appointment that i ended up having to reschedule at a different place, all because iphone alarms aren’t reliable whatsoever.
and yeah, i know, i should’ve learned my lesson the first time it happened & bought another alarm clock, but my issue is, why should i have to? i spent hundreds of dollars on this thing, why should i need to have a backup for a service it provides me? if i pay this much money, i just expect my product to work, y’know?
 i know about the ‘change volume with buttons’ setting. this happens to me regardless of whether or not that setting is turned off, i’ve tried both because i originally didn’t know if that setting correlated directly with alarms
