How to Set a Sleep Schedule in iOS

In iOS 14, Apple introduced the ability to set a sleep schedule in the Health app. The function itself is not too complicated. You figure out how many hours you ideally want to gain each night, and then set a scheduled bedtime and wake-up time that fits that goal.

Of course, you can always set a one-time or repeating alarm in the Clock app. The main reason you choose a sleep schedule is that it allows you to set specific goals and automate sleep routines more easily. For example, you can automatically activate Sleep Focus and set sleep reminders at your scheduled bedtime. If you use an Apple Watch or other sleep tracker/sleep app, you can also get notifications when your sleep goals are met or exceeded.

You are also not limited to one sleep schedule. This can be a handy tool if your work, class or morning workout routine varies from day to day. But before you can set up multiple plans, you need to set up your first one. need to be able to do this:
