>>> Ap­ple sa ys CarPlay is its safest so­lu­tion for us­ing your de­vice in a ve­hi­cle, yet many of us sim­ply don’t have this tech­nol­ogy avail­able. So it’s ex­tend­ing the Do Not Dis­turb fea­ture to work while you’re driv­ing.

It uses Blue­tooth to con­nect to your car or, if your car doesn’t have that, it em­ploys your iOS de­vice’s Wi-Fi to de­tect the Dop­pler ef­fect and de­ter­mine that you’re mov­ing in a car. Your de­vice then asks if you’d like to en­able Do Not Dis­turb While Driv­ing. If you ac­cept, your de­vice’s screen goes black and no­ti­fi­ca­tions won’t flash up on its screen.

Try to wake the de­vice and you’ll be re­minded that the fea­ture is en­abled. You can over­ride the block, so the fea­ture’s ef­fec­tive­ness ul­ti­mately de­pends on your sense of re­spon­si­bil­ity.

Do Not Dis­turb While Driv­ing can tell any­one who texts you that you’ll get in touch when you fin­ish your jour­ney. And like reg­u­lar Do Not Dis­turb, you can set ex­cep­tions to en­sure cer­tain peo­ple can al­ways reach you.
