You might have noticed that in iOS 14, you can set your iPhone to be more attentive when you fall asleep and when you wake up, and you can verify this by setting a regular alarm for yourself.
These improvements in the “ Sleep ” section of the Health app are based on the sleep tracking and wake-up alarms you set before, but that’s not all. This replaces the previous “Sleep” function of the Clock application.
The best way to start is to go to the Health app. Tap “Sleep” (or find the section in the search function), tap “Sleep Schedule” and then tap the switch.
You can now make settings, although iOS can suggest them as well. You can press “Edit Schedule” to choose your own sleep schedule, or “Add Schedule to Other Days” to create one for days for which you do not yet have a schedule.
If you let iOS 14 automatically set your alarm to “ Wake up ”, it monitors your usual pattern, makes suggestions, etc. For example, my cell phone realized that during a pandemic I would go to bed around 11:30 p.m. and wake up at 8 a.m., although it could vary a bit.
In iOS 13, my wake-up alarm was at 8:00 a.m. on weekdays. If I turned it off, no other day of the week would ring. In iOS 14, Apple added the “next day” option which you can access from two different places:
- Under “Dream”, tap “Edit” in the “Next” section.
- In the “Alarm” section of the “Clock” app, tap “Change” next to the subject itself (under “Go to bed / wake up”).
The appearance and settings are somewhat different in “Health” and “Clock”, but in both places you can set a time and an alarm for a day.
These little changes make a difference on days when you want to have an alarm at a different time than usual, and they also help you set multiple times so you don’t have to wake up at the same time during the week and on weekdays. -end.
