Turn Do Not Disturb on or off
When Do Not Disturb is on, there's a crescent moon icon in the status bar. There are two ways to turn Do Not Disturb on or off:
Go to Settings > Do Not Disturb to turn on Do Not Disturb manually or set a schedule.
Open Control Centre, touch and hold the crescent moon icon to quickly adjust your Do Not Disturb settings or tap the crescent moon icon to turn it on or off.
If you set an alarm in the Clock app, the alarm goes off even when Do Not Disturb is on. Learn how to set and manage your alarms.
Change your settings
If you don't want to be disturbed at a certain time, you can set a schedule. Tap Settings > Do Not Disturb, then turn on Scheduled and set a schedule. You can also choose when you want to receive alerts, calls and notifications:
- Silence: Choose to silence calls and notifications always or only when the device is locked.
- Allow Calls From: Allow calls from everyone, no one, your favourites, or specific contact groups stored on your device or iCloud.
- Repeated Calls: If someone calls you twice within three minutes, the second call isn't silenced.
