Do Not Disturb (DND) is a useful feature on the iPhone that allows you to silence calls, notifications, and alerts. This feature comes in handy when you don’t want to be disturbed during important meetings, while sleeping, or simply when you need some uninterrupted time. In this article, we will guide you through the process of turning on DND on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open Settings

To begin, locate and tap on the Settings app on your iPhone’s home screen. The Settings app icon resembles gears.

Step 2: Find Do Not Disturb

In the Settings menu, scroll down until you find Do Not Disturb. It should be located between Display & Brightness and Date & Time.

Step 3: Enable Do Not Disturb

In the Do Not Disturb settings menu, toggle the switch next to “Manual” to enable DND. When DND is enabled, a crescent moon icon will appear in the status bar at the top of your iPhone’s screen.

Schedule DND

If you want to schedule DND for specific times every day, tap on Scheduled. Here you can set a start and end time for DND. You can also choose whether to allow calls from your favorites or repeated calls to bypass DND.

DND Options

Beneath the scheduled settings, you’ll find additional options:

  • Silence: Choose whether calls and notifications are silenced always or only when locked.
  • Allow Calls From: Specify who can call you when DND is enabled. You can choose from Everyone, No One, Favorites, or specific groups from your Contacts.
  • Repeated Calls: Enable this option if you want a second call from the same person within three minutes to bypass DND.
  • Emergency Bypass: This option allows calls and notifications from specific contacts to come through even when DND is enabled.

Step 4: Schedule DND During Bedtime

Besides manually enabling DND and scheduling it, there is an additional option called Bedtime. When enabled, Bedtime mode dims your lock screen and silences notifications during your regular sleep hours.

To enable this feature, go back to the main Do Not Disturb settings menu and toggle the switch next to “Scheduled”. Then tap on “Bedtime” below it to set your sleep schedule.

DND on iPhone is a versatile feature that helps you stay focused and undisturbed when you need it the most. Whether you want to manually enable it or schedule it for specific times, now you know how to turn on Do Not Disturb on your iPhone. Enjoy uninterrupted moments!
