Skip a wake-up alarm Update Next Wake-up Only Jeff’s iTip: Make those paste alerts go away. If an app keeps asking you whether you want to allow something to be pasted into the app every single time, you can often can set the app to always allow. But you have to do it through iPhone settings, not the pop up. Go to settings, then find the app you want to always allow paste to, and select to allow for pasting from other apps.
