A strange phenomenon appears to be that some iPhone models are turning off temporarily at night, potentially disrupting alarms and other iPhone-features.
inside Thread on RedditOne user complained that two separate iPhone alarms in their home did not go off. Many other users have also shared similar issues and it appears that some of the issues may be related to the iPhone turning off at night. From Reddit:
Hijack top comments. Check your battery settings and see if there are any gaps at night. Many iPhones were down for a few hours last night. In my case the phone restarted 1 minute before the alarm
A few others mentioned having to restart or turn off their iPhones at night and entering their passcode in the morning. 9 to 5 Mac We highlighted these issues earlier this week and encountered the issue here as well MacRumorscannon Lots of users MacRumors they were. outside of it MacRumors:
So my iPhone 15 Pro Max with iOS 17.0.3 restarted automatically last night (October 10 at 1:00 am CET). The same thing happened to three of my friends who have the same iPhone and the same iOS, and another person who has an iPhone 13 mini, also on the same iOS.
You can find out if your iPhone has been turned off overnight by opening the Settings app, going to Battery and checking the charge status for the last 24 hours. If there is a gap, the “iPhone” turns off for a certain period of time.
The issue affects iPhone 15 models, but also other devices, suggesting that it occurs in iOS 17. Not all users experience shutdown problems and it doesn’t seem to happen every night.
It’s still unclear what’s going on and Apple hasn’t commented on the matter.
