We've all been in that embarrassing situation where our phone rings at the wrong time. Whether it's an important meeting, a crucial exam or a business lunch, we always expect it to be something urgent, only to find out that it's one of the endless videos our friend sends us on WhatsApp.
If you're new to iPhones or have simply never noticed this feature, you'll be happy to know that you can turn on Do Not Disturb mode to avoid those awkward moments.
The main purpose of this mode is to avoid situations like the one mentioned above, but it also offers many other possibilities. Let's see how it works.
How to activate the “Do not disturb” mode on your iPhone?
To begin with, activating the “Do not disturb” mode is very simple. Just open the Control Center, click on “Focus” and activate the mode with the moon icon. From then on, your notifications will be silenced.
When you receive messages, calls or other notifications, they will not immediately interrupt your peace of mind. They will be grouped together in a section called “During > mode; Do not disturb” . By accessing this section, you will be able to see everything that has been sent to you during this time.
But what about important notifications you don't want to miss? You may want to avoid distractions in general, but you know that there are certain notifications you need to pay attention to. To do this, go to “Settings > Focus modes > Do not disturb” . In this section, you can select the people and applications from which you want to receive notifications, even when the “Do not disturb” mode is activated.
In addition, you can customize the settings according to your preferences. You can change the lock screen, the presentation of applications or even the face of your Apple Watch when the mode is activated. It's also possible to schedule it to activate at a specific time each day, among other options. The possibilities are endless.
