When you create an alarm in iOS1, it is given the default label
Alarm. I find it useful to change this for two reasons. First, it reminds me why I set the alarm in the first place. This may not be confusing if the alarm is waking me up in the morning, but I might also set multiple alarms during the day for different tasks. These levels remind me what I need to do next:
push wash into dryer
check on sump pump progress
verify boy cleaned his room
This is easily done with Siri:
Set an alarm for 54 minutes labeled 'put wash in the dryer'.
The other benefit of labeling alarms is that you can edit them by their label using Siri:
Change the alarm labeled 'wake up call' to 530am.
iOS 8 as if this post. ↩
