    Default Why can't I set multiple alarms after ios 10 update?

    I tried everything on your suggestions. I did the RESET "all settings," that didn't work. I deleted all of my alarms, then put a few on. No luck.
    I'm a teacher and I use this feature to make sure my students get to their various special classes on time. I've never been so frustrated and disappointed with my iphone.
    Is there somewhere I can report this to the 'Apple People'?

    It seems to be a bug with the iPhone. The multiple alarms still functions on my iPad, not the iPhone. Hopefully they fix the bug as I need multiple alarms in a day for med.

    I haven't seen any other complaints about your issue. It's not widespread, so there's likely not a fix coming. It may be a hardware issue with your phone. You might call Apple Support and see what they recommend. Have you tried a restore as new? That's your last resort. But don't restore from a back up. Do it as new.

    My wife had the same problem with her 6. I figured out that it has to do with the new bedtime feature in IOS10. My 6s plus did not have this problem, so I am guessing it is strictly for the 6's.
    Start the bedtime feature and answer all of the questions it ask's. Then keep the alarm set in bedtime and once I backed out, it allowed me to set multiple alarms for the time being. The only down side to this, is once you exit to your home screen, and go back in to alarm it goes right back to not allowing multiple alarms. Once you have them set, it works. Not sure how many alarms you need to set. May be Good enough until  provides an update to the problem.
    Hope this helps.

    Same issue here (iPhone 7, iOS 10.0.3). If I switch one on, the other switches off. Cannot activate more than one. Terrible!

    Upgrade to 10.1. There's a fix. Just spoke to Apple Support, upgraded and it's done.
