It seems that the default snooze time for alarms is 9 minutes. Is there any way I can change this setting?


A primitive work around would be to set two alarms, both with no snooze. Alarm 2 can be set X minutes after Alarm 1.

    More robust method is to enable snooze for the second alarm. – Andrey Jan 9 '15 at 8:29

There's no obvious way to change the snooze interval for the built-in iOS alarm. However, there are a few free apps available from iTunes App Store that offer this functionality:

  1. Theme Clock Alarm: Snooze timer configuration (up to 60 minutes)
  2. Alarmed: offer multiple snooze timings - Drop-down panel for easy access to key features, including Nag-Me, snoozing options...

An alternative to the alarm app are CalAlarm and Snooze Me. Both apps provide a snooze function. CalAlarm is an calendar app, while Snooze Me is a calendar app add on. Both apps let you choose a Snooze interval and Snooze your events.

  • Just a note - as of Oct 2015 neither is available in the UK Store. – Tetsujin Oct 1 '15 at 11:58
