How do I get my alarm to only play through my headphones?

No, unfortunately there is no such setting. Your best bet is probably to use a 3rd party app with alarm clock functionality. That way it will only play the sound through the headphones and not the speakers. The main disadvantage is that you would need to remember to keep the app launched before you go to bed each time.

Open the Clock app, tap the Alarm tab, then tap Edit. Tap the alarm, then tap Sound and choose a Sound. If you use iOS 11 or later and you connect headphones or speakers to your iPhone, the alarm plays at a set volume through the built-in speakers on your iPhone as well as wired headphones and speakers.

Likewise, does alarm play through Bluetooth headphones? Bluetooth speakers often play many sounds and alerts that would normally come through the built-in iPhone speaker. However, when it comes to alarms sounding, don't look for the alarm noise to play on the Bluetooth device. The iPhone itself will play the ringing alarm from the built-in speaker.

Will I hear alarm with earplugs?

However, you will still hear significantly louder noises. Of course, you will hear them less loud. Many people find it easier to fall asleep while wearing the earplugs and wake up less easily. Noises such as your alarm clock, doorbell or children can still be heard.

Why don't I wake up to my alarm?

For some people, this means waking up on time but feeling too anxious, overwhelmed, or lethargic to start their day. For others, this can mean literally sleeping through their alarm because they aren't sleeping well at night, or that tthey're in such a state of exhaustion they don't register the wake-up noise.

How do I silence my iPhone but keep alarm on?

Use your phone's silent switch
Instead of using the volume buttons to make your phone silent throughout the day, just use the silent switch (above the volume buttons) to turn your phone's ringer off. This will turn off your phone's ringer but leave your alarm intact.

Why does my iPhone ring when my headphones are plugged in?

Your iPhone is stuck on headphone mode because it thinks headphones are plugged into the headphone jack or Lightning port, even though they're not. This is usually caused by a problem with the headphone jack or Lightning port itself. 99% of the time it's a hardware problem, not a software problem.
