In the past, people always depended on alarm clocks of a lifetime to get up every morning, but with the arrival of electronics devices more advanced like smart phonesthe old alarm clocks have given way to these devices such as the iphone of Manzana, or the different phones Android.


And if any TechMarkup reader owns a smartphone like iphoneprobably the alarm sound that is configured by default is ‘Radar’ and it has been confirmed that for health, it is not the most recommended.

Now research has shown that depending on the alarm selected on the iPhone, affects sleep inertia. And what is this? Well, sleep inertia is that dizzy, confused, and tired feeling that occurs right after waking up and can last for several hours.


Be that as it may, Startle’s music critics have rounded up the best and worst alarm clocks that can be set on an iPhone, and also alert that the one used by default is probably not the best one. Actually, the alarm called ‘sencha’ it is the best option because it has a dominant frequency of 500 and 110 beats per minute, and it is recommended for people to wake up.

However, the default alarm sound on iPhones called ‘Radar’ is one of the worst options according to experts, so you may already be able to understand why you wake up in a bad mood most mornings.


Alarms that prevent sleep inertia

To reach their conclusion, the researchers used a study conducted at the RMIT University from Australia, during which they managed to identify the properties of the melody that neutralizes the symptoms of sleep inertia.

The aforementioned contained a melody that could be sung or hummed, with a frequency of 100-120 beats per minute, the tonality of C5 and a dominant frequency of 500 Hz.

As already anticipated, ‘sencha’ it is the best option if you want to wake up every morning in a good mood, but ‘On the beach’, ‘Slow ascent’, ‘Constellation’, ‘Waves’, ‘Circuit’ or ‘Silk’ are also on.

On the other hand, between less recommended ‘Radar’, ‘Señales’, ‘Campanillas’ or ‘Ladera’ are indicated. The reason why the latter are not recommended is that they promote sleep inertia because they do not have a good melody and produce short, sharp noises. In addition, its frequency is up to four times higher than that recommended by experts.

And if any reader wakes up badly with an ill-advised alarm clock, it will contribute to slow sleep, so in the morning you will have an increased heart rate and dizziness that can last for hours.

So from TechMarkup it is recommended to check the Apple iPhone alarm now because it is probably time to replace it. And if you have an Android device, you just have to try to choose the alarm sound that is most similar to those presented in this study.

How to turn off someone else’s iPhone alarm

The process is very easy. Once the devices are configured within the option ‘In family’, you just have to ask siri from any other device set up in the same home that silences the alarm on another device.

Works on iphone, iPad, Mac either HomePod. The only requirement is that the devices, both the one that is ringing and the one in your hand, are from the same ‘Family’.

Now, whenever a person wakes up to a constant alarm that isn’t their own, while their owner is in the shower and does nothing to stop their iPhone from ringing constantly, just say: “Hey Siri, turn off the alarm on Jose Arana’s iPhone” (or the name of whoever’s iPhone) and ready.

Siri will always ask for a confirmation to check if you really want to turn off the alarm. If all goes well, the alarm will stop immediately. Mind you, this is a function of domestic use, so it is essential that both people use the same network Wifi.
