Wow, talk about adding insult to injury.
For reasons known only to itself, Apple completely removed the delightful and useful Bedtime feature from its clock app in iPadOS 14. On iPhones it’s been moved to the Health app… but the Health app doesn’t exist on an iPad.
Now, no-one could be more surprised than me that the realisation of this, upon waking to a harsh alarm and not my lovely gentle bedtime waking music the morning after updating to iPadOS 14, COMPLETELY RUINED MY WHOLE DAY!
It may be a measure of how it only takes a little thing at the moment, but I was one seriously cross and grumpy sourpuss for the whole day. Pretty silly in this time of very real hardships and catastrophic losses I know, but I can only tell it like it is.
I’m over the worst of it now, and no longer prowling around my house, muttering obscenities aimed at the developers at Apple, but…
…to be greeted this morning by a pop up in the pitifully depleted Clock app, suggesting that I CAN still have all that Bedtime gave me, I simply need to go to the Sleep feature in the Health app – that’s the Health app THAT DOESN’T EXIST ON THE IPAD (and no, tapping on that cruelly teasing little “Set Up Sleep” link does absolutely sweet F.A.) – come on guys! Really?! 😤🤬
