Set Alarm for 6 AM on iPhone (No Hands)

Are you one of those iPhone users who use Apple’s personal voice assistant Siri for setting an alarm by saying: “Set a 6 am alarm for tomorrow morning” But, were you aware that you can ask Siri to set your alarm for more than just one day? Well, you can! You can set the alarm for weekdays only, or every day of the week; both of which are a whole lot quicker than manually setting an alarm in the Clock app and checking every individual day.



Use Siri for Setting an Alarm

  • Hold down the Home button to activate Siri. If you’ve already enabled Hey Siri on your iPhone you can activate it that way;
  • Now say: “Set an alarm for 6 am” Siri will immediately respond with: “OK, I set an alarm for 6 am starting tomorrow

Weekdays 6 am Alarm

  • Hold down the Home button to activate Siri; perhaps you’ve already enabled Hey Siri on your iPhone so you could activate it that way;
  • Now say: “Set an alarm for weekdays at 6 am” Siri will respond with: “Your alarm is set for 6 am, starting Monday”. Of course, if ‘tomorrow’ is a weekday, Siri might also say “starting tomorrow”;

If you want to check your alarms, open the Clock app and at the bottom of the screen tap on Alarms.

Siri will occasionally provide a hilarious response to your task. Actually, There are dozens of things you can say to Siri to evoke kickass answers.

However, waking up to the awful sound of your iPhone’s default Radar ring tone is a terrible way to start a new day! Fortunately, going right back to iOS 6, users have been able to choose a song from their music library in order to set their iPhone alarm. With iOS 8, simply grab some great tunes from Apple Music and choose one of these for your alarm sound.



Use Favorite Song for Alarm

If you have a special song you’d like to use as your alarm, simply add this song to My Music in Apple Music.

Now that you have the song you’d like to wake up to, tap the triple-dot button located on the right then select Add to My Music.

Close Apple Music now that you’ve added your favorite song and open the Clock app. Working from the Alarm tab, either tap the plus button + to add a new alarm or tap Edit to edit an existing alarm.

Next, tap Sound on the Edit Alarm screen. Tap on Pick a Song: now you can either search for your song or find it via Albums, Artists, Songs, or another grouping.

Once you’ve located the song you’re looking for, make it your alarm sound by tapping the plus button +.

Finally, return to the Edit Alarm screen by tapping the Back button – then tap Save. Voilà! that terrible radar tone is gone, and now you can awaken to your favorite song!

Use GBA4iOS to Play Gameboy Games on iPhone (iOS 10 Ready)

Going right back to the beginning of jailbreaking days, probably the main reason for hacking an iPhone was so that users could play games via emulators, like NDS, GBA, or PS games. GBA4iOS is one of the most popular emulators in recent years because it allows iPhone users to play Game Boy Advance games on their mobile devices. In addition, GBA4iOS uses Apple’s own certificates to allow users to install the emulator – it doesn’t need a jailbroken device in order to work.




We know that Apple closes these loopholes quite quickly by revoking the certificate that’s used, but now we have a new version of GBA4iOS available. With the return of emulator GBA4iOS last week you shouldn’t have any problems with iOS 10 or below without having to jailbreak your iPhone.

This means that, once again you’ll be able to use GBA4iOS to play Gameboy games, including romhacks, on your iPhone. Very cool, hey!

But, as always with GBA4iOS, Apple are constantly releasing updates that will render the emulator useless, so this can’t last forever.

Download and Install ROMs for GBA4iOS

GBA4iOS 2.1 works with iOS 8.1 to iOS 9.0, 9.1, 9.2.1, 9.3, 10.0 and hopefully above. In order to put GBA4iOS 2.1 through its paces you’ll need to install it and get your ROMs into it, because this emulator has a lot more to offer. Here are our instructions for installing the emulator :

  1. On your device, open Safari then navigate to iemulators.com/gba4ios;
  2. Tap the GBA4iOS 2.1 button then hit “Install”;
  3. When you receive the pop-up requesting confirmation, tap “Install” again;
  4. You’ll have a new GBA4iOS icon on your home screen once the installation is complete. If you’re using iOS 10, go to Settings – General – Profiles: select the certificate that starts with ‘CMN..’, then on the following screen hit the Trust option.

Please Note: If you’re using an older version of iOS you simply launch the app from the Home screen, and when you get the confirmation pop-up simply hit “Trust“.




Now you have your emulator installed and ready to use, so get some ROMs for your favorite Game Boy Advance games (they’re easily found on the web). Just open GBA4iOS app on your iPhone and tap on the Search icon; go to Google’s homepage where you can search and download GBA ROMs directly on your device.

Now that you’ve successfully installed GBA4iOS on iOS 10 you need some GBA ROMs to play Gameboy games. Not only can you download your favorite ROMs within the application, you can also sync them with Dropbox.

Now that the ROMs have been downloaded, you need to enable DropBox Sync: this saves the ROMs to your DropBox account so that you’ll be able to use them on all your devices.

  • First of all you need to install DropBox on your device. In order to activate DropBox Sync, go to Settings within the application;
  • Next, scroll down and locate the “DropBox Sync” option;
  • By default this will be turned off, so you should enable this and grant the necessary permissions. And to ensure that you’ll never lose any data, you can also sync Saved Game Data.
