Do Not Disturb is a handy feature on the iPhone that allows you to temporarily silence notifications and calls. It can be useful in situations where you don’t want to be disturbed, such as during meetings or when you’re trying to focus on an important task.

However, there may come a time when you need to turn off Do Not Disturb and allow notifications and calls to come through. In this article, we will show you how to do just that.

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

Step 1: Unlock your iPhone by pressing the Home button or using Face ID.

Step 2: Swipe down from the top-right corner of the screen to open the Control Center. On older models with a Home button, swipe up from the bottom of the screen instead.

Step 3: In the Control Center, locate the crescent moon icon. This icon represents Do Not Disturb mode. If it is highlighted in purple or has a line through it, it means Do Not Disturb is currently enabled.

Step 4: Tap on the crescent moon icon once to disable Do Not Disturb mode. You will see the icon change color or disappear completely, indicating that Do Not Disturb has been turned off.

That’s it! You have successfully disabled Do Not Disturb on your iPhone and will now receive notifications and calls as usual.

Note: If you find yourself frequently toggling Do Not Disturb on and off, you might find it more convenient to customize its settings instead. To do this, go to Settings > Do Not Disturb. Here, you can schedule specific times for Do Not Disturb mode to automatically turn on and off, allow calls from certain contacts even when in Do Not Disturb mode, and more.

  • Troubleshooting tip: If you’ve followed the steps above and are still not receiving notifications or calls, make sure that your iPhone’s volume is turned up and that you haven’t accidentally enabled Silent mode by flipping the switch on the side of your device.
  • Pro tip: If you want to temporarily silence notifications without enabling Do Not Disturb mode, you can use the volume buttons on the side of your iPhone to put it into Silent mode. This will prevent notification sounds from playing, but you will still receive them on your lock screen.

In conclusion

Turning off Do Not Disturb on your iPhone is a straightforward process. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can easily return to receiving notifications and calls as usual. Remember to check your phone’s volume settings if you’re still experiencing issues after disabling Do Not Disturb.
