A TIKTOK tech tipster has highlighted a neat iPhone trick for anyone who likes to drift off to their favourite tunes.
The smartphone guru who goes by Katarina Mogus showed her 2.4m followers how to switch off their music after a set time period.
It means you can listen to Apple Music to help you sleep without the app playing through your earphones all night.
Katarina shared the trick in a TikTok video uploaded on Tuesday.
She said: "If you love falling asleep listening to music like me you're gonna wanna do this."
The trick involves a little-known feature built into the iPhone's Clock iOS app, which lets you set alarms and start countdown timers.

Now, when the time is up it will automatically pause the music or podcast you have playing on Apple Music.

"Your music will automatically stop playing and you can have a nice sleep," Katarina said.
If you don't use Apple Music, you're in luck! Other music apps let you perform a similar trick in just a few taps.
When playing a track on Spotify, for instance, tap the three dots in the top right corner of the Now Playing screen.
Scroll down and tap Sleep Timer. Specify the amount of time you would like to pass before the music stops.
If you're playing a podcast on Spotify, setting a Sleep Timer is even easier.
Simply tap the Moon icon next to the playback controls and select a time period.
