Unable to edit alarms in the Clock app

Category
Miscellaneous
Severity
Moderate

Description

It is not possible to edit existing alarms in the native Clock app when VoiceOver is enabled.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Ensure that VoiceOver is enabled.
  2. Have at least one existing alarm configured in the Clock app.
  3. Open the Clock app and navigate to the Alarms tab.
  4. Double tap with 1-finger on the Edit button.
  5. Place VoiceOver focus on to the alarm that you wish to edit.
  6. Double tap with 1-finger.

You would expect the selected alarm to open in an edit screen (as it does in iOS 14.x).

What actually happens is nothing.

How often the bug occurs

Always

Workaround

When in Edit mode, if you locate by touch the desired alarm, hover your finger above it, disable VoiceOver, touch the screen where the alarm was located, and enable VoiceOver, you should find that the alarm is now on its edit window.

Alternatively, delete the existing alarm and recreate with the desired configuration.

3. Doble tap and hold the alarm to be modified.
4. On the new screen, change whatever and save.
Done.
