About Phone-Free Mode:
Sleep hygiene best practices tell us to avoid the blue light from our phones before bedtime. With the new Phone-Free Mode enabled, Bose noise-masking sleepbuds begin playing your preset sleep sound as soon as they are removed from the charging case, eliminating the need to look at the Bose Sleep App before you sleep. Alarms set in the app are disabled while in Phone-Free Mode. Note that both the Sleep App and the Sleepbud firmware must be updated to enable this feature.
