Do Not Disturb is a handy feature on the iPhone that allows you to silence calls, notifications, and alerts while still keeping your device active. Whether you’re in a meeting, studying, or simply want some uninterrupted time, enabling Do Not Disturb can help you maintain focus. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps to put Do Not Disturb on your iPhone.

Enabling Do Not Disturb

To enable Do Not Disturb on your iPhone, follow these simple steps:

  1. Step 1: Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
  2. Step 2: Scroll down and tap on Do Not Disturb.
  3. Step 3: Toggle the switch next to Manual to turn on Do Not Disturb.

You can also schedule Do Not Disturb to automatically activate during specific times. This is especially useful when you want to ensure uninterrupted sleep or set boundaries during work hours.

Scheduling Do Not Disturb

To schedule Do Not Disturb on your iPhone:

  1. Step 1: Open the Settings app.
  2. Step 2: Tap on Do Not Disturb.
  3. Step 3: Toggle the switch next to Scheduled.
  4. Step 4: Tap on Schedule.
    • Step 4a: Choose the From and To times for Do Not Disturb.
    • Step 4b: You can also select Allow Calls From to allow certain contacts to bypass Do Not Disturb.

Additional Do Not Disturb Settings

The Do Not Disturb settings offer even more customization options. To access these settings:

  1. Step 1: Open the Settings app.
  2. Step 3: Scroll down to explore additional options like:
    • Silence: You can choose to silence calls and notifications always or only when the iPhone is locked.
    • Silence During Bedtime: This setting dims the lock screen, mutes all calls, and hides notifications until you wake up.
    • Repeated Calls: If enabled, a second call from the same person within three minutes will not be silenced.

Please note that enabling Do Not Disturb will prevent incoming calls and notifications from making sounds or vibrating. They will still appear on your iPhone’s lock screen and notification center. You can easily disable Do Not Disturb by toggling the switch off in the Settings app or through Control Center.

In conclusion, using Do Not Disturb on your iPhone is a great way to stay focused without missing important calls or notifications. Whether you enable it manually or schedule it during specific times, Do Not Disturb gives you the peace and quiet you need, whenever you need it.
