Alarms have been a boon ever since they were first introduced ages ago, and with everything else going digital, they did too. Chances are, alarms for the next day are one of the first things you check when putting your phone down for the night.

Apple iPhone alarms are pretty convenient to set up and customise, but a lot of people remain confused about the effect of the Do Not Disturb (DND) feature of iPhones and whether or not these restrict the alarms from going off.

The simplest answer to the question, will my alarm go off on DND is a firm Yes!

While the DND feature is great at restricting call and message notification tones — barring from the contacts you allow — while you’re resting or doing something important, you can rest assured that any alarm that you’ve set will go off even on DND.

Alarms on iPhone will even go off when the phone is set to a silent profile or toggled to silent using the hardware button in older iPhone models.

The two primary things that you need to take care of when setting the alarm are the volume of your device, which will determine the volume of the alarm tone, and the ringtone you set up for the alarm.

As long as your iPhone is switched on and the alarm is active, the alarm will go off regardless of whether DND mode is enabled or disabled, and as mentioned above, even when the phone is in silent mode.
