- Enable the Sleep Schedule and set your sleeping hours by setting the bedtime and wake-up time. If you don’t want an alarm to wake you up, you can disable the ‘Wake Up’ Alarm.

Fix: What to do if the Good Morning screen does not show up in the morning
If there is some contradiction in your iPhone’s settings, the Good Morning Screen will not show up on your iPhone.
Make sure to enable the Sleep or Bedtime schedule by following the steps stated above. Also, try the tips given here to fix the issue with the Good Morning Screen.
Modify your Do Not Disturb schedule
It is recommended to set up the Do Not Disturb or Sleep mode using the Sleep or Bedtime settings so that it can be enabled automatically when you are sleeping.
If you are worried about missing important calls, you can always allow calls from some contacts or even allow repeated calls.
If the Good Morning Screen is still not enabled, you should create a custom schedule from the Do Not Disturb settings in the Settings App.
Now create a new schedule that matches your Bedtime schedule. While the Do Not Disturb mode can begin early than the Bedtime schedule, but it should end at the exact time when the alarm will set off.
Modify the Weather app settings
iPhone makes use of Apple’s native Weather App to display the current weather and temperature conditions on the Good Morning screen.
So, if the Good Morning Screen does not display the weather report or if the weather seems inaccurate, there must be some issue with Apple’s weather app.
Launch the Weather App on your iPhone and see if it is working fine. If the app is not installed, you can download and install it from the App Store.
Sometimes, the reason why the weather app is showing inaccurate reports is that it cannot access your location. Go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services. Now switch on the toggle next to the Weather app to allow the app to access the Weather conditions.
Try a different Weather App
As mentioned above the Good Morning Screen of your iPhone works along with Apple’s stock weather app to provide weather reports.
If you feel that Apple’s Weather App is not working as expected on the Good Morning Screen, you can always download the Weather Channel App.
After installing the app from the App Store, launch the App. Now check if it is displaying the weather conditions of your current location. If not, allow the Weather Channel App to access the location from the Privacy Settings.
So that’s how you can set up and use the Good Morning Screen to get the Good Morning greeting along with the weather conditions as soon as you wake up. How did you find this feature? Let us know in the comments below.
