I’m using iOS 11 public beta 1 and today I’ve noticed an alarm clock badge on the YouTube app. Now I’m wondering why it is there and what does it mean?

Right now the badge is just a normal red circle with a 1 inside.


It also showed me this:

The icon is telling you why Siri is suggesting the app to you by placing it in the Dock. Siri's proactive abilities means it suggests apps it thinks you are likely to use for a variety of reasons:

  • Alarm icon: app suggested because of the time of day
  • ‘Location’ arrow: app suggested because of your current location

You can disable apps from being suggested on the Dock by going to Settings → General → Multitasking & Dock and disabling Show Suggested and Recent Apps.

  • Thank you for your answer. Do you have also official information what those badges mean? Is there a list of all the different badges?
