    Has anyone played around with the "Bedtime" feature in Apple's Clock App? It is really kind of cool.

    Bedtime was part of iOS10.

    Been using it for a year now, pretty cool. It collects your "resting in bed" (not sleeping) time based on your iPhone sensors. If you pick it up it flags you as not resting.

    The only gripe I have with it is that it has no proper scheduling: you can only have 1 bedtime set for multiple days which means I have to manually edit my bedtime on the days I get up earlier/later.

    Oh and the alarm tones are much nicer in bedtime.

    Good point,but as most people start work at the same time everyday,and need the same sleep time every night,apple might have thought that multiple days setting was enough. I use bedtime too,but not on weekends or holidays.

    Pretty sure the app makes the point that regular and consistent sleep hours is a goal so even if you can get up later doesn't mean you should (according to this philosophy). Of course, if you have radically changing shifts and need to sleep during the day to work through nights occasionally, this isn't possible.

    For shift workers like myself,it's not a big deal to change the settings once or twice a week.

    i use it just for alarms, but the sleeping graph is absolutely ugly & i cant understand it whatsoever, like what kind of damn graph is that? whats so hard about plotting it like the (updated) health app? whole thing is slopply done

    It only take about 5 seconds to change the two times that Apple probably doesn't see any need for presets. Selecting a preset would take just as long and be less accurate than filing to within 5 minutes of the actual bead time.

    IF its just the alarms you need,use the alarm clock instead.

    It's a shame the Bedtime alarm sounds aren't available as normal ones, and you can't set volume separate from ringer on the normal ones either :(

    I use Bed Time regularly. It's to the point that the dogs respond to faster than I do!

    Now this I 100% agree on the lines make no sense to me at all to the point where I don't even bother to check them because how it's shown.
