Disconnect the power.
Reconnect the power.
Hold the play/pause button down for 5 seconds and release.
Then immediately tap the play/pause button once so the 12 starts flashing.
Press the fast forward button to move the hours to the correct number, then press the play/pause button again and the minutes will now flash. Then press the fast forward button again to move the minutes to the correct number.

For Alarm 1, press the "-" button QUICKLY (don't hold it down) and the Alarm icon will disappear or appear. For Alarm 2, press the "+" button for a similar response.

Hi,

The iPhone 6 is too large to be used via the dock, but can be used via the auxiliary input connector.

Have a good day.
