Hi, would like to have an alarm on my iPhone which at a predefined time signals with a short signal and does not give away any more signals after that.
All built-in alarms in the iPhone repeat until you manually switch it off with a tap of your finger.
Just to be clear, I don’t want to press anything, I just want a single short signal, that’s all.
Does anyone know a way to achieve this?

One can ask Siri to turn off the alarm when it goes off. But probably that is not the solution you are looking for.
The other solution I could think of is to use the Shortcuts app by Apple.
This app has a learning curve but once it is learned, it becomes a powerful tool to help automate a multitude of tasks on an iOS device.
Apple’s website has the best tutorial on how to use Shortcuts. I found those tutorials better than most.
- It has a logical flow of steps (or actions as Apple calls them) which one wants to perform.
- There is an action in this app called ‘Toggle Alarm’ which toggles ON or OFF an alarm at the user-defined time.
This app has numerous built-in actions and one can play around with those to get the required result.
- The shortcut app can be used with Siri also.
