This Is Why The iPhone Snooze Lasts For 9 Minutes

The struggle every morning of waking up to your iPhone’s alarm…that sound has become nauseating. Especially when you’re the type of person who hits snooze at least two more times past your alarm. But have you noticed that the iPhone sets their “snooze” option at exactly 9 minutes? Why not 10? Is there a scientific reason behind this or is our iPhone just telling us to get out of bed and on with our day?

It turns out that weirdly enough, 9 minutes is an old school tradition. Business Insider shares, “Back in the day, mechanical clocks had to offer snooze in nine-minute intervals because in order to make snooze work, the button was attached to the part of the clock that controls minutes.” Now with digital clocks, it is much easier to code 9 minutes versus 10, which is why it hasn’t changed. So really, Apple is just paying homage to what used to be!
