Since the arrival of the first iPhone and with each update, we have thousands of functions in one device. Among all of them, we can highlight the calendar, the meteorological weather app, the reminders, etc. And today we want to show a very simple and interesting tutorial. It’s one of my favorite functions: the timer. I use it both on my iPad and on my iPhone and my Apple Watch . Thanks to it I never forget to take the pizza out of the oven. Learn to set the timer below in all these ways.
How to adjust the timer in iOS 12
For iOS to put a timer according to our, we can adjust it manually or by invoking Siri. Manually it can be done from the Clock app. Inside we will find the Timer window on the right. Once there, we adjust the time we want and we give Start. If you put the shortcut in the Control Center, you can also adjust it from there. While the time is running, we can see a floating window on the lock screen with the countdown.
It’s the same procedure on the iPad and on the iPhone. At the end of the time, an alarm will sound. When finished we can repeat the time or deactivate it . If you have an Apple Watch, setting the timer on it will double on the iPhone. In the same way, when you put it on your iPhone, the warning will come to your watch. That way, wherever you go, you will not miss your time.
Employing Siri to set the timer is even more convenient and faster
Nothing faster than saying “Hey, Siri, set the timer X minutes”. I prefer the phrase “countdown X minutes”. In any case you will understand and will establish it instantly. Without having to touch the screen or walk unlocking the device. And on all your mobile devices with iOS or watchOS.
If you have not tried the timer yet, it’s time to do it. Try to establish it while cooking, studying, brushing teeth or doing yoga. It is an essential function that can go unnoticed by many.
