Icons at bottom left corner of screen

The last few weeks my IPhone 6 has been coming on with a tone and an icon of a clock in the bottom left corner of the screen. It will do it 3 or 4 times very early in the morning , this morning it started at 4:41.....very aggravating!
Any ideas on what this may be and how to get rid of it?
Thanks
David

The icons in the lower left are apps you typically use in that location. Perhaps you set an alarm at home a lot, which is why it is there.

This sounds like one of your apps is producing notifications, in the form of sound.

I would check the Settings->Notifications for your apps and see if there is an app with a similar icon to the one you see in the early mornings. Tap on it, See if there is a setting for Sounds and Show on Lock Screen is enabled. You may want to disable them. Then open the app to see what it is doing at 3 am.

Another feature you may want to use is Do No Disturb which is in Settings->Do Not Disturb. Use a Schedule time (10pm-6am) to prevent apps from making noise while you sleep. So 3 am emails will no longer play a tone, etc.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....

I couldn't find any apps that had the clock icon so I set up do not disturb. Thanks again!

The icon and the sound could be unrelated. As stated above, if you use your alarm at home the most often of all your apps, the clock will be the icon on the bottom left (for me it is Pokemon Go).

The sound could be from email, or some other program. Perhaps, checking your Notifications, clearing them out, then checking them in the morning will reveal the program making noise.
