NIXsolutions: Apple is Working with Glitch in the Alarm Clock

In recent days, iPhone users have increasingly voiced complaints about their smartphone alarms failing to sound when expected. These reports, circulating on platforms like TikTok, have drawn attention to a potential issue affecting a significant number of users. Apple has acknowledged the problem and assured users that they are actively working on a solution. However, the tech giant has yet to provide specifics on the cause of the malfunction or an estimated timeline for resolution.


Possible Cause: Attention Aware Feature

Some users speculate that the malfunction may be linked to the Attention Aware feature, introduced with the iPhone X. This feature utilizes the TrueDepth camera to monitor the user’s facial position. For instance, it can detect if the user is actively looking at their device during an alert and adjust the alarm volume accordingly. While this feature offers convenience by preventing the screen from turning off when in use, its role in the alarm clock malfunction remains unconfirmed.

Next Steps and Resolution

While awaiting a comprehensive fix from Apple, affected users may explore temporary solutions. Disabling the Attention Aware feature via device settings is suggested by some users as a potential workaround. However, it’s important to note that this may not fully resolve the issue, and users should remain vigilant for further updates from Apple, adds NIXsolutions.
