The Do Not Disturb Button—Sometimes You Just Need One!

 

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:

Option 1:

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Tap “Do Not Disturb.”
  3. Choose “Manual” to turn on/off now or “Scheduled” to schedule a specific time to not be disturbed.

Option 2:

  1. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to open Control Center.
  2. 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.
