How to set a sleep timer for Apple Music on iPhone
Like falling asleep to music but don’t want it playing throughout the night? This can help.
Do you like to fall asleep listening to music? Do you like the music to stop playing once you’re no longer awake? Do you want to avoid having the artists on your playlist influence your dreams? You should.
While Apple Music doesn’t have a built-in sleep timer, you can rig the iOS Clock app to perform the same function. The trick is simple but effective.
Let’s discuss how to use the Clock app in iOS to set an Apple Music sleep timer.

That’s it. Your tunes will cease to play when the timer expires, and you can continue to sleep in peace.
Sleep timers should be obsolete
While sleep timers are handy, they aren’t always accurate. Knowing exactly when you’ll fall asleep can be difficult, so you run the risk of dozing off early and waking suddenly to a death metal scream or losing your music prematurely. Perhaps there’s a better solution.
The Apple Watch already tracks your sleep, so adding a feature that pauses your tunes when you’re no longer awake makes sense. Or maybe an AI assistant that watches you while you sleep and controls your music would be another much creepier option.
