People are just realizing that iPhones have a hidden “sleep timer” to help you fall asleep
If you’re having trouble falling asleep, a handy iPhone trick can help.
Your iPhone has a hidden “sleep timer” that is very useful.
If you regularly use music, podcasts, or relaxing sounds to help you fall asleep, iPhone can help.
But you might not want your iPhone making noise all night — or it might wake you up again.
A trick to solve this problem is to set a “sleep timer” that turns off your music after a certain amount of time.
While playing a track, open Apple Music Clock and go to timer Tab.
Set the amount of time you want to elapse before your music stops, then tap When the timer ends.
Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the drop-down list and tap stop playing. blow begin to start the timer.
When the time is up, the music or podcast you are playing on Apple Music will pause automatically.
In some apps this is also possible without having to go to the clock.
For example, launch the Apple Podcasts app, then look in the lower-right corner.
Tap the crescent icon and then you can set podcast timers.
For example, you can turn off the podcast when the current episode ends.
Or you can set timers for 5, 10, 15, 30, 45 minutes or an hour.
And that’s not all.
For example, when playing a track on Spotify, tap the three dots in the top-right corner of the Now Playing screen.
Scroll down and tap sleep timer. Specify the amount of time that should elapse before the music stops.
Apple also has some built-in sleep sounds for you to enjoy.
This includes rain sounds and even white noise.
There are six options to choose from:
- Balanced noise
- Light noise
- Dark noise
Go into your Settings app and then select Accessibility > Audio/Visual > Background Noise.
Now toggle the Background noise switch at the top of the page to the ON position.
Then go to Sound and choose one you like.
You can then set a volume and even choose whether you want the background noise to play during the media.
That means you can hear soothing rain sounds while listening to a podcast.
If you don’t want to navigate to this menu every time, you can create a shortcut.
Go to Settings > Accessibility > Accessibility Shortcut, then select Background Noise.
Now when you triple click the side button on your iPhone, your selected background sounds will play.
You can also add it as an option in your Control Center.
