    As I mentioned before, right as I go to bed, I like to set a wake up time with Siri. Last night, I said to Siri "Hey Siri, wake me up at 5:30am" and she sets the time. So then I was thinking to myself, I could get an extra half hour of sleep and so I call on Siri to change my wake up time.., "Hey Siri, change my alarm from 5:30am to 6am". She calls back "Your alarm has been changed to 6am." All is good or so I thought until I discover that she never turned my alarm on and so I wake up at 8:20am. Automation is not always reliable and so back to manual.

    She probably feels used.

    Mine works every time but I don't say "wake me up at xx:xx", I say "set alarm for xx:xx." I've never tried to change an alarm with Siri though.

    Is it possible that you were really tired and turned it off? I use this feature all the time and it works great for me. Make sure it shows the alarm as being set to ON after you use Siri to set it. The toggle will appear on the lock screen.

    I asked Siri to change my alarm time. She said, "Which one...There are 23 of them..."

    Sound like you need to tell Siri to delete my alarms.

    I told Siri to show me alarms and then had her delete one with the instruction delete 6:00am alarm.

    Stopping and snoozing on iOS works great for me. I've never had any problems with that.

    Believe me, she's the Khaleesi of the snooze button realm.

    Does it work with Siri? I've not tested it.

    I don't know. I just press snooze. It's easy. Too easy. I do it for like two hours straight and drive Naps insane.

    Yeah. I get used to resting in nine-minute shifts.

    I didn't read KPSK's post closely enough. I don't use Siri to snooze alarms. I just tap snooze on the phone. I've never actually tried it with Siri. It's faster for me to just press snooze. Why would anyone press a button on the phone to activate an internet service and talk into the phone to tell it to snooze when they could just press the snooze button and go back to sleep?

    Snooze is nice until you oversleep and then are rushing to get some place. I've been in that situation because my alarm didn't go off again.

    Guess that answers my question on why it doesn't work. At least now I can stop trying thanks.

    It goes off again nine minutes later for me every time. I know you have mentioned having a lot of problems with it. I think you are accidentally turning your alarm off.
