Edited by Kara, Leomar Umpad, Eng

Hi, you are watching VisiHow. My name is Kara and in this is video, I will show you how to set up a do not disturb mode on iPhone 6.

Steps

  1. 1
    Before we activate that mode, let's see what it actually is
    .
    We have to go to the Settings - a gray gears icon.

  2. 2
    Here is the main menu for Settings in the very first
    .

  3. 3
  4. 4
  5. 5
    In the second section on the bottom, the third one is the Do Not Disturb
    .
    Let's tap on that option.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    So here is the page
    .
    I can set up a manual to not disturb so I can choose what do I want and what do I not want.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    Let's do it Manual
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    I can setup Scheduled On
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    In this case, it's asking me what time I want to be on "not disturb mode"
    .
    I'll choose from 10 to 7 as it is setup by default.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    You are allowed to change it
    .
    For example, I set Do Not Disturb from 8 in the evening to 10 in the morning.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    So in that time period, from 8 in the evening until 10 in the morning, nobody will able to access me simply because I will not be hearing ringtones, or vibrations, or phone calls, or SMS on any notifications
    .
    I will be leaving my peaceful life sleeping without being disturb by a phone.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    There are always exceptions to the rules
    .
    So here is the exception and Allow Calls From.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    I can allow phone calls from Favorites, I can allow phone calls from no one or anybody can call me while the do not disturb mode is on but I think it defeats that purpose of the mode itself
    .
    So let's just tap the Favorites - only Favorite. My contacts can access me when I sleep or when I am away.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    You could have watched me adding contacts to the Favorite list on one of my previous videos on VisiHow
    .
    You are welcome to search for it.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    Next thing - Repeated Calls
    .
    When this mode is activated, the second call from the same person within 3 minutes will be silence. This means that if a person keeps calling me, I just will not hear it. Anyone repeats call so let's turn it off.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Silence
    .
    You can choose "Always" or "only when the iPhone is locked". I prefer Always. While I play candy crush and while I am putting the kids to sleep, I do not want any sounds to wake them out.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    So do not disturb button is on
    .
    Let's say I decided not to schedule it. I will do it Manually.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    When you tap Manual that means that I will be able to activate or deactivate the mode by using my fingers every time
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    So now, when we set up the mode itself; when we tune up the Do Not Disturb Mode, I will show you how to access it and how to activate it in a very fast way
    .
    You just need to have the pop-up menu by sliding from bottom to the top.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    On the top menu bar, you can see the fourth icon with a little crescent - semi-moon as my son calls it
    .
    Tap on the icon and Do Not Disturb is on.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    As you can see here, on the little tiny bar sign bar right at the top of your screen, you can see a little crescent sign next to the battery, and your service provider, and WiFi and clock
    .
    Right on the top is a little white tiny crescent which represents that the Do Not Disturb mode is being activated.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    How do you turn it off
    ?
    It's the same thing. Slide up and turn the crescent off.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    As you can see, Do Not Disturb mode is off
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
