How to Time Yourself with Music on Your iPhone

How to Time Yourself with Music on Your iPhone

* This post is part of iPhone Life's Tip of the Day newsletter. . *

Use timers a lot? Here's a fun way to use music on your iPhone to time showers and other activities like workouts or your kids' chores. If you like to fall asleep listening to music or podcasts and want playback to stop after a set time, this tip will work for that too.

Open the Clock app on your iPhone and select Timer.

Tap on When Timer Ends, scroll down and select Stop Playing, and then tap Set in the upper right corner.


Now you can start your music, set a timer, and rock out in the shower without worry; the music will shut itself off when it’s time to shut the water off.
