How to Set a Sleep Timer on iPhone, iPad, and Android

There are various habits before going to bed for sleep. Someone maybe does some reading, and someone would like to listen to music songs before going to sleep. Soothing music is good and helpful for sleep.

However, if you do nothing and just leave it, the music will be played all night. It sounds so wasteful. Please don't worry. You can ask the sleep timer feature of Music for help, which allows you to fall asleep to Apple Music or Beats 1 radio without it playing all night.

The process to use the sleep time to set the playing time is very simple. Start playing some music files, set a timer, and watch or listen until you doze off. After the set time has elapsed, the playback will end and, in some cases, the device will power off.

We all know that Apple Music is a streaming music service, that is, users can only enjoy Apple Music on devices that support Apple Music App, or Apple Music for Android after they subscribe to Apple Music. Even when you have downloaded Apple Music files to your computer, and try to transfer these downloaded Apple Music files to other MP3 players or other audio player devices, you may find that they can't be played or they can't be found.

Why? All the Apple Music files are limited with DRM, which also prevents users doing copy or backup Apple Music. When you cancel Apple Music subscription, you can play them including downloaded Apple Music files.

If you want to free your Apple Music from DRM and play Apple Music on MP3 players or transfer and backup Apple Music files, you can use Macsome iTunes Converter to convert them to MP3, AAC, FLAC, ALAC, AIFF, and WAV format with a fast conversion speed.

Once you purchased the program to convert Apple Music files, you can keep your Apple Music files all time.
