Actually, today I wanted to introduce you to a countdown app for the iPhone that you can download quickly and easily for New Year's Eve. But apparently there are no good, visually appealing app offers for counting down days, hours, minutes and seconds that are free at the same time. If you would like to spend a few euros, then you will surely find the right one for you, even with widgets for the home screen. If you don't want to spend any money on the few seconds to be displayed before the turn of the year, there are also two free options - and that directly in iOS and iPadOS.
Tip from Jens: Seconds clock on iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch
Chapter in this post:
Realize a New Year's Eve countdown with the timer in the clock app
The clock app, which is installed by default on your Apple mobile device, has various functions. You can set one or more alarm clocks, display different locations and time zones in the world clock tab, and use a stopwatch. And then there is the timer. I've already given you that as a solution for them "Stop playback" function presented after a specially defined time. But you can also use it for a countdown. Whether 10 seconds, 15 seconds, 30 seconds or several minutes to hours - you can even choose a sound for the sequence.
Set up a countdown with Siri
If you want to go faster, you can also set up a countdown using the Siri voice assistant. Just say "Hey Siri, countdown 10 seconds." or "Hey Siri, set a countdown for 10 seconds.“To count down the corresponding time. Of course, other times can also be used, so that you can e.g. B. with a several-minute countdown you still have enough air to bring the family together and count down together. Siri is probably the quickest way to countdown a New Year's Eve because you don't have to unlock your iPhone or iPad and open an app. The turn of the year approaches surprisingly quickly, so this is a good solution;)
