Do Not Disturb (DND) mode on iPhone is a handy feature that allows you to silence calls, notifications, and alerts when you need some uninterrupted time. However, there may be instances where you want to turn off DND and resume receiving incoming calls and notifications. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to turn off DND on your iPhone.

Step 1: Accessing the Control Center

To begin, swipe down from the top-right corner of your iPhone’s screen to access the Control Center. The Control Center is a convenient hub that provides quick access to various settings and features of your device.

Step 2: Locating the DND Icon

Once you’ve accessed the Control Center, look for the crescent moon icon. This icon represents the Do Not Disturb mode. It is typically located in the top row of icons in the Control Center.


If you don’t see the crescent moon icon in the Control Center, it means that Do Not Disturb mode is not enabled on your device. In this case, there is no need to turn it off as it is already disabled.

Step 3: Turning Off DND

Now that you have located the crescent moon icon, tap on it once to disable Do Not Disturb mode. Once tapped, the crescent moon icon will no longer be highlighted or have a slash through it.


Alternatively, you can also disable DND by going to Settings > Do Not Disturb and toggling off the “Manual” switch.

Step 4: Verifying DND Status

To ensure that Do Not Disturb mode has been turned off successfully, you can check the status bar at the top of your iPhone’s screen. If Do Not Disturb mode is disabled, you will no longer see a crescent moon icon or any other indication that DND is active.


Congratulations! You have successfully turned off Do Not Disturb mode on your iPhone.

Now you can receive calls, notifications, and alerts without any interruptions. Remember that you can always enable DND if you need some quiet time again by following the same steps outlined in this tutorial.

  • Step 1: Access the Control Center by swiping down from the top-right corner of your screen.
  • Step 2: Locate the crescent moon icon, representing Do Not Disturb mode.
  • Step 3: Tap on the crescent moon icon to turn off DND.
  • Step 4: Verify DND status by checking the absence of the crescent moon icon in the status bar.

By following these simple steps, you can easily enable or disable Do Not Disturb mode on your iPhone whenever you need to prioritize your focus or enjoy uninterrupted downtime.
