I recently mentioned my concerns for using Sleep Cycle with my iPhone X because it leaves the screen on through the night and OLED has a limited lifetime. Several of the terrific Nerds on Draft listeners pointed out that Sleep Cycle works even when the phone is put to sleep. While this is true it was a worse experience because turning off the alarm required unlocking the phone first. This week’s update solves that issue.
Sleep Cycle now automatically turns off the iPhone X display when it is laid on my inductive charger. When the alarm goes off the screen activates and I still have access to the snooze and cancel actions.
