How to use do not disturb mode on an iPhone?

You have an important job to finish and it’s really not the moment to be interrupted? To avoid being disturbed by incessant notifications, activate Do Not Disturb mode on your iPhone. 

The Do not disturb feature allows your iPhone to be discreet and disable the sound of your alerts (message, call …). When activated, it silences all your notifications and calls. 

This option can be very useful if you do not want to be disturbed during important moments or during a good night’s sleep. 

In this tutorial, we explain how to activate Do not disturb on your iPhone and contact your friends who also use it.

What is the difference between Do Not Disturb and Number Block?

Using Do Not Disturb and Block Number are two pretty similar things, at least they were created for the same reason: do not be bothered. 

When you block a correspondent’s phone number, you no longer receive a message or call from the other party. 

However, it is quite possible that this person bypasses your blocking by calling you in unknown number. 

Do not disturb, you will no longer receive notifications and will no longer hear alert sounds. However, you will receive your messages and can see them by turning on the home screen of your iPhone.
