Are there times you don’t want to be disturbed by the sound of a ringtone or the buzz of a vibration whenever a new call, text, or email arrives?
Did you know your iPhone has a Do Not Disturb function which lets you silence calls, alerts, and notifications while your device is locked? You can also schedule a time period or choose who can call you. There are two easy ways to turn this function on or off:
- Open the Settings app.
- Tap “Do Not Disturb.”
- Choose “Manual” to turn on/off now or “Scheduled” to schedule a specific time to not be disturbed.
- Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to open Control Center.
- Tap the crescent moon icon.
You can also choose when you want to be disturbed or who can contact you with the following settings:
Allow Calls From: Allow calls from everyone, no one, your Favorites, or specific contact groups stored on your device.
Repeated Calls: If someone calls you twice within three minutes, the second call won’t be silenced.
Silence: Choose to always silence calls or only when your device is locked.
Now you can leave your phone on and sleep, work on a project, or watch a movie and not be disturbed—or only on your terms.
