Un­der­stand Do Not Dis­turb

Take a well earned break from the pres­sures of work and life

Mac|Life - - CREATE - Alan Stone­bridge

Do you crave time away from the hus­tle and bus­tle of daily life? Phones and tablets en­able us to be al­ways on­line, but the bound­aries between our dig­i­tal, work, and per­sonal lives are in­creas­ingly blurred, mean­ing we get fewer op­por­tu­ni­ties to switch off from the dis­trac­tions that our de­vices bring, short of turn­ing them off.

Ap­ple’s so­lu­tion to this is Do Not Dis­turb — a fea­ture which, when ac­ti­vated, si­lences all no­ti­fi­ca­tions, alerts, in­com­ing phone calls, and mes­sages for a set pe­riod of time or un­til you de­ac­ti­vate it.

Don’t worry though; you won’t miss a thing. Your iPhone col­lects all of the alerts to­gether, while your phone stays dark and silent.
