Do Not Disturb: The iOS Feature Everyone Should be Using

Take control of that dopamine inducing device you carry everywhere with you, by silencing those notifications for when you need your attention the most, during the day when tasks need doing.

Smartphones, the wonderful devices invented at the turn of the century and really came in to their own with iPhone and Android. Not too mention the billions of notifications from Nokia, Motorola, and BlackBerry devices from years prior.

Settings > Do Not Disturb

Over the years the amount of time these smartphones steal time from us in the run of a day. From text messages, emails, phone calls (does anybody answer these?), and apps, all send notifications for your eye balls.

To avoid this I have been using the Do Not Disturb (DND) feature of Apple’s iOS. This feature allows me to silence notifications on a schedule, 8AM-5PM in my case. It also allows my Favorites to reach me, so necessary people can reach me if they need too.

You can also setup Auto-Reply messages if you like to inform contacts that you have DND turned on.

Once you have DND set to your liking, your day will be much smoother and you can check your notifications when you see fit. All the notifications will come in as normal, you just won’t see or hear them. But, still allow important Contacts through for emergencies.
