Are you tired of constantly being interrupted by phone calls and notifications on your iPhone? Do you wish there was a way to have some uninterrupted peace and quiet?

Well, you’re in luck! Your iPhone has a feature called “Do Not Disturb” that allows you to silence calls, alerts, and notifications while still being able to use your phone. In this tutorial, we will show you how to put your iPhone on Do Not Disturb.

Step 1: Accessing the Settings

To begin, unlock your iPhone and go to the home screen. Locate the “Settings” app and tap on it. The Settings app is represented by a grey gear icon.

Step 2: Finding the Do Not Disturb Option

Once in the Settings app, scroll down until you find the option labeled “Do Not Disturb” and tap on it. It is usually located between “Control Center” and “Wallpaper”.

Step 3: Enabling Do Not Disturb

In the Do Not Disturb settings menu, you will see a switch at the top labeled “Do Not Disturb”. Toggle this switch to enable Do Not Disturb mode. When enabled, the switch will turn green.


If you want to schedule a specific time for when Do Not Disturb mode should automatically turn on and off every day, toggle the “Scheduled” switch just below the main toggle switch. This allows you to set a specific time range for when you want your iPhone to be on Do Not Disturb mode.

Step 4: Customizing Additional Options

Beneath the main toggle switch in the Do Not Disturb settings menu, there are several additional options that you can customize to suit your needs. Let’s take a look at some of these options:

  • Silence: This option allows you to choose whether you want your iPhone to be completely silent or if you want it to vibrate when receiving calls and notifications while in Do Not Disturb mode.
  • Allow Calls From: By default, this option is set to “Everyone”. However, if you prefer, you can change it to “No One” or “Favorites” only.

    This allows you to control who can call you when Do Not Disturb mode is enabled.

  • Repeated Calls: Enabling this option will allow a second call from the same person within three minutes to bypass Do Not Disturb mode. This can be useful in case of emergencies.


If you want to quickly enable or disable Do Not Disturb mode without going into the settings each time, you can add the Do Not Disturb toggle switch to your Control Center. To do this, go back to the main Settings screen, tap on “Control Center”, then tap on “Customize Controls”. Locate “Do Not Disturb” under the “More Controls” section and tap on the green “+” button next to it.

That’s it! You have successfully learned how to put your iPhone on Do Not Disturb. Now, enjoy uninterrupted peace and quiet whenever you need it!

Note: While in Do Not Disturb mode, your iPhone will still receive calls and notifications; however, they will be silenced and not displayed on your screen. You can view missed calls and notifications by unlocking your iPhone or checking the Notification Center.
