Sleep mode on iPhone is a useful feature that allows you to save power and silence notifications. However, it can be a nuisance at times.
If you want to turn off sleep mode iPhone without affecting your alarm, there are a few steps you can take. First, you’ll need to disable your wake-up alarm.
1. Turn off Do Not Disturb
Every new iOS update adds a number of new features to your iPhone. While many of these aren’t always immediately obvious, they can make a big difference when it comes to getting more done. One of these is Do Not Disturb, which is an excellent feature for keeping you from being distracted when you’re on the go or in bed.
Apple’s Do Not Disturb features have been expanded with the introduction of Focus on iOS 15. This gives users even more customization when it comes to screens and app permissions during certain times of day or night.
With this recent update, Apple also introduced the ability to share Focus across all of your iCloud-connected devices. That means that if you turn off Do Not Disturb on one device, it will be turned off across all other devices logged in with the same iCloud account.
You can easily turn off the Do Not Disturb mode by going to Settings on your iPhone or iPad -> Focus and then turning off the toggle next to Share Across Devices. You can also tap on the Control Center icon in the upper right corner of your menu bar -> Focus -> Focus Settings -> and then turning off the toggle for Share Across Devices.
2. Turn on Auto-Lock
If you want to keep your iPhone screen on without having to touch it or press the button to turn it off, then you need to set it to auto-lock. This feature dims the screen after a set amount of time, which is useful for extending battery life and preventing others from accessing your device.
To do this, you need to go to Settings > Display & Brightness and tap on Auto-Lock. You’ll see a range of timings to choose from, from 30 seconds up to 5 minutes and an option for Never.
You can also customize the length of time your iPhone’s screen will lock after you’ve been inactive for a certain number of seconds. If you’re concerned about battery life, select a shorter option, such as five minutes.
Another option is to use a sleep timer. You can use this feature to play media for a specific period of time and then let the phone go to sleep. It’s a useful feature for those who aren’t always at home and need to get a little bit of shut-eye while watching TV or listening to music.
3. Turn on Sleep Mode
When you’re trying to get a good night’s sleep, it’s important to have a few things set up on your iPhone. You might want to enable Do Not Disturb, dim the screen, or even set your alarm. If you don’t follow these routines, you may end up having a hard time sleeping.
This is why Apple has rolled out the new Sleep Mode feature for iOS and watchOS. It automatically dims your screen, hides Lock Screen notifications, and only allows calls from certain people (if you’ve chosen to turn on Focus).
To set up Sleep Mode on your iPhone, open the Health app. Tap the Browse tab and then select Sleep.
The next step is to set your goal for how much sleep you’d like to get every day. Once you’ve done that, you can set your schedule and let the app do the rest.
When it’s time to go to bed, your iPhone will automatically enter Sleep Mode. The Sleep Mode app will track your sleep and give you reminders about your wake-up alarm. It can also send you a notification when you’ve reached your Sleep Goal.
4. Turn off Always-On Display
The Always-On Display (AOD) feature on iOS is a nifty new way to keep an eye on your notifications without having to actually turn on the screen. It works much like Android’s version, except instead of simply dimming the wallpaper on your lock screen when you stop looking at it, it keeps the date, time and widgets illuminated until you unlock your device again.
While it’s a cool feature, it does use some battery power and can be a little distracting when you’re trying to sleep at night. If you’re concerned about this, you can disable it or turn it off altogether.
To disable Always-On Display, you need to open the Settings app and go to Display & Brightness. You’ll find a slider for Always-On Display and you can toggle it on or off.
Since Apple’s implementation of the Always-On Display dims the Lock Screen wallpaper and notifications, it can be a little distracting when the feature is activated. To avoid this, you can disable the Show Wallpaper and Show Notifications options in the iOS Settings menu.
