Best and Worst iPhone Wake Up Alarms – With Apple’s Default Radar BOTTOM on the List

How do your favorites stack up? Study reveals the best and worst iPhone wake-up alarms — with Apple’s default radar on the list

  • Research has shown that our choice of alarm affects our ‘sleep inactivity’.
  • Sleep inactivity is the feeling of dizziness and disorientation after waking up
  • Alarms that have a strong tone, are not very fast and are in the C5 key to reduce this
  • So the best default alarm clock on iPhone is “Sencha”, and the worst is “Chimes”

As it gets darker in the morning as we approach winter, many Brits may find it hard to wake up.

Research has shown that our choice of alarm affects our “sleep inactivity” — feeling dizzy, disoriented and tired immediately upon awakening.

Now, music analysts at wince Revealed the best and worst iPhone wake-up alarms.

Their findings indicate that the happy song “Sencha” is a better choice thanks to its specific melody being in the C key and having an average speed of 110 beats per minute.

However, Apple’s default alarm, “Radar,” is one of the worst options, according to experts.

a Study 2020 From RMIT University in Australia, she identified melody qualities that would nullify the symptoms of sleep insufficiency.

This includes having a tone that can be sung or played, with a rate of between 100 and 120 beats per minute, a C5 key and a dominant frequency of 500 Hz.

Researchers from Startle have categorized 28 default iPhone alarm tones based on the criterion from this study.

Their findings suggest that ‘By the Seaside’ and ‘Uplift’ should provide a nice start to the day, with a lower risk of unpleasant insomnia.

On the other hand, the worst iPhone alarms are “Presto,” “Radar,” “Beacon,” “Signal,” and “Chimes,” all of which promote sleep lethargy because they lack melody and produce short, sharp bursts of noise.

They also have frequencies up to four times what experts recommend.

The reason why our alarms affect how we feel when we wake up has to do with how they work.

Luke Cousins, Regional Officer of Physiology at Nuffield Health explained: “The awakening process is controlled by the Retinal Activation System (RAS).

This restricts how your body responds to external stimuli during sleep and how it transitions into wakefulness.

An alarm clock is designed to stimulate the RAS, telling your body to wake up.

The jolt of an alarm clock can be especially powerful if you’re in a deep sleep phase, leaving you with an increased heart rate and feeling dizzy in the morning that can last for several hours.

It’s also hard to wake up during the winter because our brains produce melatonin – a hormone that makes you tired – in response to darkness.

This enhances sleep inactivity, but is also influenced by other factors such as genes, lifestyle and sleep quality.

Expert tips to reduce inactivity

1. Know your inner clock – If you are by nature a night owl – it may be easier for you to get up a little later, and if you are an early bird, go to bed at a reasonable time. Moreover, waking up at the end of the sleep cycle, when you sleep lightly, is the best way to wake up feeling refreshed.

2. Maintain a consistent sleep-wake schedule Your body’s internal clock is sensitive and maintaining an irregular schedule can make it difficult for your body to adjust to different wake times. Ideally, your body needs at least eight hours of sleep.

3. Let the light in Allowing light to slowly enter your room is a great way to let your body know it’s time to wake up. In the fall and winter, consider using a sunrise clock that can gently wake you up with a light that mimics the sunrise.

4. Avoid hitting the snooze button Holding down the snooze button may mess with your body clock. Not only is a ten-minute snooze long enough to get some restful sleep, it can increase your heart rate and make you feel more tired when your alarm rings again.
