My personal calendar only contains truly important events and I hate missing something when I forget about a notification. Is there an app (or iOS Calendar setting) that would make my phone vibrate and ring an alarm whenever an event starts? I would like it to be able to override silent and Do Not Disturb mode as well to be safe.

This is for iPhone 12 / iOS 15.

None of the apps on the App Store work well. I tried Calarm or CalAlarm.

What worked instead was creating a Shortcut. You can create an Automation to run the shortcut every day at 1:00am, and it loops through all events on your calendar and makes an alarm for all of them 10 minutes early with the calendar name.

Here’s a link: https://www.icloud.com/shortcuts/70c788b054924957b14bf247251d74bf

Within the Shortcuts application, set scheduled automation at the start of every day. It only works for the 1st event of the day though.
