iOS 14: Upgrades in the Health app

The iOS 14 makes sure to keep you healthy by introducing a new sleep schedule in the health app. To help you meet your sleep goals, you can use the Health app to schedule times for unwinding at the end of your day, getting to bed, and waking up.

You can create multiple schedules—for example, one for weekdays and another for weekends. For each schedule, you set up how you want the iPhone to wake you by choosing an alarm and other options. Here’s how you can set up a sleep schedule in the Health app and keep a track of the health checklist.

Set up sleep schedules in Health on iPhone

To reduce distractions and help protect your rest, you can enable Sleep Mode for iPhone. Sleep Mode simplifies your Lock Screen and turns on Do Not Disturb. You can schedule Sleep Mode to begin before it’s time for bed.

If you relax before sleep by using iPhone for activities like reading or listening to music, you can add Wind Down Shortcuts for these activities on the Lock Screen.

Add Sleep Mode to Control Center to quickly turn Sleep Mode on or off. See Use and customize Control Center on iPhone.
