I want to schedule Airplane Mode during the night (10PM–6AM) on my iPhone.

How can I do that?

I used to turn off my previous phone (a non-smartphone). I do that especially to save some battery life.


There is no solution to this so far.

The original answer is based on my excitement about upgrading to iOS 13 and discovering Automations. Before testing if it works, I just posted the answer.

In fact, most of the Automations have to be initialised manually…

On the other side, since many would want to schedule the Airplane during the night, I can recommend from my own experience that leaving the devices (phone, computer, tablet), in a different room than the bedroom is a good idea.

I built this habit in the last months and I use my CASIO watch to wake me up every morning.

Original Answer

This is possible in iOS 13 using the Shortcuts app. You have to create an automation to enable the airplane mode in the evening and another automation to disable it in the morning.

I used the following:

  1. Create automation
  2. At 22:30Airplane mode ON
  3. Finish

The same process for the morning

  1. Create automation
  2. At 5:30Airplane mode OFF
  3. Finish

For iOS 12 and older, it's not possible to schedule Airplane Mode unless you have a jailbroken device. If you want to jailbreak your iPhone, there's a few apps that do this exact thing.

This sounds like it would be a good idea so I recommend you let Apple know you want this on their iPhone Feedback page.
