    We want to tap on the first option, "When calls and notifications arrive".
    It currently is set to "Don't interrupt". We want to demonstrate how to allow all of the interruptions and notifications. Pressing down on the first option will bring up 3 options.

    Now it is set to "Always interrupt".
    This is the long way to do this. We showed this because it's important, but it is the longer way to get to this menu. What we can do for a shorter way to change this option is to press down on a volume button.

    The box will disappear very quickly, but we can see the word "ALL" highlighted in green because we have it set to always interrupt.
