How to Use Standby Mode in iOS 17

Do you wake up in the middle of the night to check the time on your iPhone, only to be blinded by the bright screen? 

Here's a Cool Tip.  Use the new Standby Mode.

Standby Mode is a new feature in iOS 17 that turns your iPhone into a bedside alarm clock or status board. 

It displays the time, date, and other important information in a large, easy-to-read format, with a dimmed screen that's less disruptive to sleep.

Here's how to use Standby Mode:
  1. Ensure you are on the new iOS 17 for your iPhone.
  2. Plug your iPhone into a charger and place it on a nightstand or other flat surface in landscape mode.
  3. Your phone will automatically switch to Standby Mode. 
    • If it doesn't, you can manually enable it by going to Settings > Standby  and toggling on the switch.
  4. Once Standby Mode is enabled, you'll see a large clock display on your screen. 
  5. You can also see other information, such as the date, weather, and upcoming calendar events.
  6. To turn off Standby Mode, simply pick up your phone or press any button.

To customize,
  • Long-press either the clock or calendar
  • Unlock your phone if required
  • Customize one or both sides of the display 
  • Tap the plus icon in the upper left of the screen to add a widget 
  • Remove a widget by tapping the minus icons.
