How to Turn Off Bedtime on iPhone (2023)

Tomorrow is the weekend, you want to play all night? OK, let me first teach you how to turn off bedtime on your iPhone

Apple releases changes and upgrades regularly to increase the capabilities of iPhones. Many of these enhancements make the user's life more straightforward. The Bedtime feature was one of the most useful features in iOS 13.

Bedtime allows many families to create a defined bedtime schedule instead of a conventional alarm that wakes them up in the morning. Setting up bedtime reminders on Apple can remind us to go to bed early to replenish energy for the next day's study and work.

As a result, your iPhone will remind you when it's time to go to bed and will wake you up at the same time every morning. You will get a bedtime reminder notification every time you set the alarm on bedtime.

As handy as this function may appear, it is not for everyone. There is an easy method to turn it off if you are one of them.

View sleep analysis

This feature has no idea how much sleep you've had. When the iPhone is in use, however, the app will not monitor your sleep stats because it only calculates the bedtime time.

With the help of the sleep stat that comes with Apple phones, you can check your bedtime schedule and have a general understanding of your sleep history. If you have purchased an Apple watch, turn sleep mode on to get more detailed sleep analysis on health app, including deep sleep, Light sleep, REM, and other information

Time for bed

For adults, we recommend that you sleep for 7-9 hours a day so that you will have the energy to deal with things the next day. With the help of bedtime and waking up, you can arrange your own sleep time reasonably.

As you can see, the Bedtime feature can easily be disabled. Unfortunately, deleting it from the Alarm submenu completely is not an option. All we can do now is wait for Apple to add more customization options to the Clock app in the future.

We expect iOS 14 to arrive in mid-September. However, the developer preview is expected to be released in June. So we'll see if the big update fixes the Bedtime problem.
