Sleep to Music with an iPhone or iPod touch

Dec 29, 2010 - 6 Comments

sleep to music iphone ipod Using a Sleep Timer feature, you can set your iPhone or iPod touch to automatically stop playing music after a given amount of time passes, this allows you to fall asleep to music without your music playing all night. This feature is built directly in iOS and you don’t need to download any third party apps.

Fall asleep listening to music with your iPhone or iPod touch

Using this method your iPhone or iPod touch will automatically stop playing music after a specified time:

  • Tap on the “Clock” app
  • Tap on “Timer”
  • Select the amount of time you want to pass before the iPod stops playing music
  • Tap on “When Timer Ends” and select “Sleep iPod”
  • Tap on “Start” to activate the sleep Timer

So let’s say it takes you on average 1 hour to fall asleep, set the Sleep Timer to an hour and your music will stop playing on its own. This saves your battery and also allows you to have a more restful sleep.

Of course this works on the iPad too, but that’s a bit less practical to sleep with.

    I do this every night, you stoled my idea!

  3. You can also try AutoSleep ( ) that detects when you fall asleep and turns the music off automatically.

    No need to set a specific time, it will use the iPhone sensors to detect your sleep phase!

    It’s for real! Check it out ;)
