iPhone’s Do Not Disturb Feature

Enjoy being woken up by a text? Love the attention you receive when your phone goes off in a meeting? Neither do I! If you’re anything like me, however, and need to keep your line open for emergency calls, you’ll love the new Do Not Disturb feature in iOS 6.

To enable manually, simply go to your settings and toggle switch on or off. While your Do Not Disturb is enabled, it will not light up or make any sounds for incoming messages, calls or other notifications. Best of all, when you have time to check your phone, everything you’ve missed will appear in the notification center when you turn on your display.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To customize this feature, go to settings > notifications and choose Do Not Disturb. Here, you can choose to schedule your Do Not Disturb feature automatically by choosing a time frame that you would like your phone to be silent each day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Expecting an important call? Want to keep the line open to the babysitter? Select the allow calls from option and you can include everyone (although that seems pointless), No One, Favorites or other groups you’ve created in your contacts. Incoming calls from your chosen group will not be silenced.

Finally, you can enable repeated calls. With this feature, a second call from a number will not be silenced if it comes in within three minutes of the first.
Try it out today!
