Chapter in this post:
How announced yesterday, the DE-Alert Warning Day 2022 took place today with a Germany-wide "cell broadcast" alarm. On my iPhone, at 10:59 a.m. on time, two warning messages in combination with a loud, unpleasant and irregular warning tone arrived. As previously announced, this was played even though I had switched the device to mute instead of putting it into ringing mode. The sound only stopped playing when I pressed the side button (on the right side of the iPhone). Previously, even when interacting with the notifications, it continued to play.
The DE-Alert warning messages in detail
I don't know why I got the same message twice. In both of them, however, it said directly on the lock screen under the heading "Emergency alert":
TEST WARNING, FEDERAL WARNING DAY 2022
Thursday, December 08.12.2022th, 10 – 59:1 a.m. – test warning – for Germany – there is no danger. - Further information at https://warning.bund.de/messengers Published by: Federal Office for Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance, National Warning Center XNUMX Bonn
The all-clear is awaited
The all-clear was supposed to be given at 11:45 a.m. So far, however, this has been a long time coming. If it still arrives, here's an update.
How did the DE-Alert warning day go for you?
How did your end devices give the alarm? Did you have a siren alarm or other emergency alert systems in combination with the notifications on the smartphone that were tried during today's test period? Feel free to leave a comment; also and especially if you do not use an iPhone or if another device reacted to the cell broadcast in addition to the iPhone. I look forward to your feedback!
