Find Happy Number Using JS

What is happy number?

A happy number is a number defined by the following process:
Starting with any positive integer, replace the number by the sum
of the squares of its digits, and repeat the process until the number either equals 1 (where it will stay), or it loops endlessly in a cycle which does not include 1. Those numbers for which this process ends in 1 are happy numbers, while those that do not end in 1 are unhappy numbers (or sad numbers). DEMO

function isHappyChecker(n) {
 		var arr = [];
    var newNum = 0;
  	var arr = n.toString().split("");
    for (var i = 0; i < arr.length; i++) {
         newNum += Math.pow(arr[i], 2);
     if (newNum === 1) {
				alert("it is a happy number");
         return true;
     } else {
     //here I noticed that all unhappy numbers eventually came into one of these three//
     //( and more) numbers, so I chose them to shorten the checking. A temporary solution for sure//       
         if (newNum === 58 || newNum === 4 || newNum == 37) {
        	   alert("it is a NOT happy number");
             return false;
         return isHappyChecker(newNum);
