Alarms on your iPhone can be loud sometimes, and thus very disturbing. You can get the alarm app turned off completely or have it deleted at once as iPhone’s clock app can only be turned off or deleted a single alarm at a time. In a situation whereby you have a lot of alarms and would want to delete them all at once, Siri’s can get that job done for you.
What Is “Siri” ?
The voice assistant on Apple devices is called “Siri”. The Siri feature on Apple devices is just equivalent to Amazon’s Alexa, Microsoft’s Cortana, and Google’s Google Assistant. The voice Assistant on Apple (Siri) available across most of Apple’s devices, including iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV.
With your device held firmly, you can ask Siri all kinds of questions, which may include questions about weather, sports scores and complex questions such as the number of calories in food. Also, Siri can enable or disable settings, find content, set alarms and reminders, place calls and texts, and a lot more.

How To Delete All Alarms
To delete your alarms, ask Siri to do that for you. The modern iPhone is always waiting to respond to the voice call that says “Hey Siri,” So all you have to do is say “Hey Siri, delete all my alarms” make sure you say it out loud.
In a situation whereby your iPhone isn’t always listening, kindly long-press the “Home button” until Siri appears, when it appears then you say “Delete all my alarms.” You will be asked by Siri to confirm your request. You can either say “Yes” or click the “Confirm” button. Once that is done, all the alarms in the Clock app will be deleted both enabled and disabled.
You Can Turn Off Multiple Alarms
Asides deleting your alarms, Siri can also disable them immediately, once you know you have a lot of enabled alarms, say “Hey Siri, turn off all my alarms” or “Hey Siri, disable all my alarms.” If Siri does not respond, press and hold the iPhone’s “Home button” repeat what you said.
Create & Manage Individual Alarms With Siri
When it comes to alarm management, Siri can be very effective in it. If you want to create an alarm, you can say something like “Set an alarm for so and so time e.g. 6:00 am,” you can even say “Set an alarm in 10 minutes,” or “Set an alarm on weekends at 5 am.” and if you want to delete a particular alarm, say “Delete my 6 am or 7am alarm.” Repeat same thing to turn off alarm for instance: “Turn off my 9 am alarm.” You can say “Change my alarm to 7 am.” to adjust an alarm.

Adjust An Alarm
Alarms on iPhone can also be adjusted using Siri. You won’t be able to effect any change on the sounds though but then, you can adjust the alarm. In adjusting the time, you can say for instance “Change my 4:30 am alarm to 5:30 am.”
Now if Siri could not identify the voice command, it will pop up a list of possible matches and ask you to confirm which alarm you want to change by tapping it.
Your Privacy with Siri
Please note that Siri does send data back to Apple, but searches and requests are not associated with your identity to keep your personal information safe.
Your data is never sold by Apple to other organizations. Siri uses end-to-end encryption for all data syncing between your devices and the cloud. Though sometimes, Apple uses Siri recordings for improving Siri’s performance. However, there is a new feature to opt out of Siri data collection and usage.
