How to set your Music app to stop playing after a set amount of time
Like to go to sleep listening to your iPhone's Music app and curious how to get it to "sleep" after a set period of time? One of the most annoying things is waking up a few hours later and it is still playing. Especially true if you are listening to an Audio Book and have to scrub back through hours of audio to find where you stopped listening.
Well there is a better way! You can set your iPod to stop playing after a set amount of time. It is really easy to do and we will show you how.
- Open up your Clock app on the home screen
- Select the Timer
- Set the amount of time you want the Music app to play for
- Click on the When Timer Ends button
- Scroll down to Sleep iPod
- Click on Set
- Start the Timer
- Fire up the Music app, lie back, relax and enjoy
- After the timer runs down, the Music app will stop
That is all there is to it, a simple but brilliant tip that I have just discovered myself!

Thanks for the tip.
Please start telling us, at the beginning, when these tips are iPhone-only.
I wondered how to do that...cuz it was possible to do with ipods.
