Your iPhone is many things, but one thing it can also do is act as an alarm clock. When you set an alarm on your iPhone, you configure it to play a sound at a certain time. The alarm will continue to go off until you interact with your iPhone. Setting an alarm is a great way to wake yourself up at a certain time or remind yourself of important events.
