Setting a new alarm in Apple's Clock App from another application

I have searched for references to this and have found a few teasers, but nothing comprehensive.

I’m looking for a way to set up (and, perhaps delete, although not absolutely necessary) a new alarm in the actual IOS Alarm Clock application from a new (self-created) app.

  • Create an (repetitive high pitch) Alarm on a remote trigger when App is not running (iphone/android) just like Find My iPhone
  • Getting iOS system uptime, that doesn't pause when asleep
  • Monotonic clock on OSX
  • iOS how to detect user has changed system time, and if not compare device time with server time
  • Playing alarm in iphone with EKEvent
  • How can I locally detect iPhone clock advancement by a user between app runs?
  • Basically, the app I’m creating would programmatically add a new alarm (setting the time, and including choosing a ring tone) to the Clock app, which would then simply behave as it normally does — making the built-in alarm clock ring when the time arrives.

    Can anyone point specifically to the APIs that would help achieve this?

    I did find reference to the CFPreferences APIs, and these seemed to imply being able to set Preferences for other apps. This sounds close, but clearly I’d need some more information, specifically:

    1) The bundle / application ID for the Clock application
    2) The format and specifics for adding (or removing) a new alarm using that preference setting

    Does anyone have any wisdom to offer?

    Many thanks,
    Scott Hurd

    This behavior is not possible, sorry. You may set alarms with custom tones through your application and handle them through your application, these are called local notifications but it would not be possible to add an alarm to the ios alarm clock.
