What Is a Sleep Schedule?

The Health app has sleep schedules to help you achieve your sleep goals and improve your overall health. You can set times for taking a nap during the day, going to bed, and waking up.

There are also multiple schedules you can make on the app. For instance, you can develop plans for weekdays or weekends.

Here are the schedules you can set.

Sleep Focus

Like the name, setting this alarm lets you sleep without distractions. In sleep focus mode, notifications from phone calls, messages, and apps are disabled.

When someone calls you, sleep focus lets them know you are unavailable. The lock screen also changes to a sleep focus screen in this mode.

Nevertheless, you can still set the sleep focus and bring notifications from the apps you allow. To set it, open “Settings” > “Focus” > “Sleep”. Then, put your notification preferences.


Just like the name also, wind-down helps you to relax and have a nap time. This wind-down setting is handy for me.

For instance, if you like to read or listen to music before sleeping, you can choose the wind-down setting.

Immediately after the wind-down mode, the sleep focus begins. You will see the wind-down feature on the “Focus” screen.

Wake-Up Alarms

Wake-up alarm mode allows the alarm tone to sound or play at the end of your scheduled sleep time.

You can set the alarm tones, vibrations, and snooze options in this mode. You can even let it have no alarm at all.


If you find it challenging to maintain a regular sleep pattern and know that a sleep schedule wouldn’t be a good option at that moment, you can turn it off.

This article describes how you can turn off your sleep schedule on your iPhone. Be checked out and give yourself the superb and uninterrupted sleep you desire.
