Do Not Disturb is a feature most people have forgotten about over the past few year. They turned it on at some point, usually overnight, and that was it. Let’s start fresh from the beginning!

You can schedule two automatic periods of Do Not Disturb every day. One is tied to the Bedtime feature on iOS. In the Clock app, tap into the Bedtime tab and go through the steps to set up your bedtime and alarm settings. After you set this up, tap Options in the main Bedtime screen. From here, you can enable Do Not Disturb During Bedtime. This means when you adjust your bedtime (for example, if you have an early morning flight), Do Not Disturb is automatically adjusted too.

The next option for scheduling is within Settings → Do Not Disturb.

While you can also enable the Do Not Disturb during bedtime here, you can enable a specific schedule. This can overlap the bedtime schedule or be completely separate. What some people might find advantageous is to schedule this during the morning after your alarm has gone off but before you are ready to be subjected to all of the notifications.

You can also manually enable Do Not Disturb in Control Center and with Force or 3D Touch (depending on the device).

From Control Center, you can enable Do Not Disturb for an hour, until the end of an event (if one is currently active or will start soon), or the next time of day such as morning, afternoon or evening, or until you leave your current location.

Do Not Disturb is such a powerful and helpful feature to ensure you’re staying in the moment. Let your devices help you improve your human interactions by keeping the notifications away when you’re focused on more important things!
