I’m still a little confused by this Bedtime feature. So I turn it on and tell it to wake me up at 7 am every morning.
Do I then turn off all my alarms in Clock.app also?
Has anyone tried the Bedtime feature. Is it reliable? Does it actually wake you up in the morning even if the phone is set to not disturb and is silenced?
I just think it’s weird that Apple has two mechanisms for waking you up in the morning in the same app: Alarms and Bedtime. And then there is the feature “Bedtime” in Settings under Do Not Disturb. It’s all very confusing… so many choices.
Thanks a lot. Do you use it? Does it help you in any way? I just don’t see it as a really significant feature. But I goes there is some value to it… I don’t understand why I can’t set different days to wake me at different times. Like different times for weekend than weekdays etc
That is one of the difficulties with it - I work shifts on a rolling pattern so that throws an extra complication into the mix.
I have a Good Morning Shortcut that I use every day; part of that puts me into the Bedtime screen to update it for the following night. It’s not ideal, but it works well and makes sure I remember to update it.
If you want to set a regular pattern that is different on specific days, standard alarms are probably a better option.
Yeah it is. But I understand why it’s that way. Good sleep patterns are built on regularity like getting up and going to sleep at same intervals. It just doesn’t work for me for personal reasons. So it’s good that Apple has ported some Bedtime features into Do Not Disturb.
