iPhone Alarm Not Working on iOS 11- Here’s the Fix


My iPhone’s alarm didn’t work on yesterday. It’s annoying. Every morning I set alarm for wake up. But now it’s so disappointing to me. I told this problem to my friend and she gave me some fixes to resolve this problem. Here I am going to tell you those solutions.
Check the volume Level of your Watch:
Sometimes it will happen to anybody. Because if they decrease the alarm volume level, then won’t heard the sound. So, you should check the alarm volume level.
Check your iPhone’s Mute Switch:
If Mute Switch is on, you should turn off it. If it turns on, you can’t hear the sounds whether it is Alarm tone or Ringtone.
