How to use Apple ‘Bedtime’
Apple ‘Bedtime’ was introduced in iOS 10 to offer you helpful alerts and reminders pre-bedtime to let you know it’s time to un-wind and get to sleep on time. Alongside reminders, Bedtime keep’s track of your sleeping habits. The new Bedtime alarm can be found and adjusted via the native clock app where you’d normally go to set your alarm.
Getting set up
Once set up, you can change your settings by heading back to the Clock app > Bedtime tab > then tap Options in the upper left corner of your screen. Here you can adjust days of the week, your bedtime reminder, wake-up sound, or volume of said wake-up sound. You can also drag the moon icon to change your bedtime, and the bell icon to change your wake up time on the Bedtime dial.
Not only does Bedtime calculate how much sleep you’re supposed to get each night, it also figures out when you actually wake up by monitoring when you pick up your phone and move around, giving you a far better idea of your sleeping habits. The feature also uses new alarms that steadily increase in volume, and new vibration patterns for a more pleasant wake up.
