iOS 15 simplifies the Apple Clock app and alarm editing


iOS 14 was generally a great operating system that brought widgets, privacy improvements, and a redesign of the Apple iPhone home screen. However, iOS 14 also saw Apple move from its traditional ‘clock’ interface and the removal of the wheel selector.

While setting alarms with iOS 14 wasn’t a problem, editing or deleting them was. Touching an alarm did nothing, and I had to press the edit button before making any changes, which felt very unnecessary.


However, with iOS 15, the iPhone clock interface has reverted to the wheel dial design, and alarms can be edited or deleted fairly quickly with the touch of a button.

Read the steps below or watch the short gif above:

  1. Open the Clock app
  2. Go to the ‘Alarm’ tab at the bottom
  3. To delete: you can swipe an alarm to the left or click on it and tap the ‘Delete alarm’ option
  4. To edit: Click on the specific alarm you want to change, and the wheel selector layout will appear, allowing you to make any changes, including settings for repeating, labels, sound, and a snooze button.
