Apple iPhone users:
Set a timer to switch off music – If you like falling asleep to music and wished your iPhone was smart enough to switch off music when you’ve dozed off…. then here’s how to make it happen:
1. Choose the music or playlist you want to listen to in the Music App
2. Next, go to the Clock app and choose the Timer section. Set when you want the music to stop playing (30 mins,1 hour, 2 hours, etc.).
3. When that is complete, choose “When Timer Ends”. Go all the way to the bottom and choose “Stop Playing.”
4. Finally, hit the “Start” button. The timer will begin counting down.
Try it… and Sleep sweet tonight…
