You can also set up “Wind Down” mode, which reduces distractions and helps you relax before bedtime. Add shortcuts to your lock screen to quickly access features such as a soothing playlist or guided meditation.

Once you’ve set up your sleep schedule, your iPhone will automatically go into sleep mode at bedtime. In sleep mode, you’ll see a simplified screen that lets you check the time or ensure that your morning alarm is set. Sleep mode also activates “Do Not Disturb,” which dims your screen and silences calls and alerts when your device is locked.

To temporarily disable sleep mode, unlock your iPhone from the lock screen. You can turn sleep mode off or on manually anytime from control center. After the first night of your sleep schedule, you can review your sleep history in the Health app. You’ll see your average time in bed for the week or month, as well as an hourly breakdown for each day.
