How to Turn an iPhone Off & On at a Specified Time

The iPhone is a smartphone with many advanced features that make it more like a mini computer than a cellular phone. One of the features it offers is to automatically wake from sleep and sound an alarm. You can use this feature like an alarm clock or to remind you about an important event. It is also possible to adjust the amount of time the iPhone will wait before it automatically goes to sleep.
