Do Not Disturb

This tweak prevents people who text you like this from blowing up your phone with notifications

We all have that one friend that can’t consolidate all of their text messages into one neat message. Instead, they are apt to send multiple messages, one after the other, in order to complete just one sentence.

While the sender may not realize it, this is very annoying for anyone on the receiving end, as their iPhone will just repeatedly ‘ding’ and ‘buzz’ all over the place, and that’s why iOS developer Hrvoje Kostic made a new jailbreak tweak called DoNotAnnoy.

This tweak brings 3D Touch shortcuts to Control Center on iOS 10

You’ve got to love it when jailbreak developers find a way to turn inconspicuous things into handy shortcuts. They’ve been doing it for years, and now the tradition continues even today with the Yalu iOS 10.0-10.2 jailbreak.

A new free jailbreak tweak called Wormhole, developed by candoizo, is the latest to join the bloodline of jailbreak tweaks, as it lets you turn two of your Control Center toggle buttons into 3D Touch-sensitive shortcuts for respringing your device and visiting your favorite website.

DayNightSwitch adds a day/night theme to toggle switches in iOS

DayNightSwitch is a new free jailbreak tweak that adds a little bit of character to the toggle switches throughout iOS you use on a regular basis by theming their on and off positions to reflect day or night.

With the tweak installed, you’re going to notice switches that get toggled to the “on” position display a blue sky with a little Sun and cloud icon, and switches that get toggled to the “off” position display a black sky with a little Moon icon and stars in the background.

How to let calls from certain people through Do Not Disturb

Do Not Disturb is a very useful feature that lets you keep yourself from being notified when you want some time of peace and quiet.

Of course, there other times when you want peace and quiet from all apps and notifications, but don’t mind getting notifications about calls from a select few people.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to exclude contacts from the Do Not Disturb feature in iOS.

How to schedule Do Not Disturb

If you have developed a healthy habit of going to bed and getting up at regular times, ensuring that notifications and calls don’t buzz at the most inopportune time is key to good night’s sleep. Since iOS 6, iPhone and iPad have included a Do Not Disturb mode, and Macs since OS X Mountain Lion.

When enabled, it silences all incoming calls and alerts. But did you know that Do Not Disturb can be scheduled? I set my devices to auto-enter Do Not Disturb to prevent alerts from ringing, vibrating or lighting up the screen while I’m asleep.

In this post, we’re going to teach you how to schedule Do Not Disturb mode on your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad or Mac to turn on and off at the same times every day, choose who to allow calls from, when you want to be disturbed and more.

MeetingDnD enables Do Not Disturb based on calendar events

The Do Not Disturb preferences in the stock Settings app provides a limited level of scheduling for the DND feature found in iOS. If you want deeper scheduling capability, you’re going to need to rely on a jailbreak tweak like MeetingDND.

Just like the tweak’s name alludes to, MeetingDND allows you to create blocks of Do Not Disturb time based on calendar events. Check out the details in this post for more info.

How to replace the Do Not Disturb icon with today’s moon phase

Interested in having a waxing crescent in your status bar instead of the standard Do Not Disturb moon icon? A new jailbreak package will allow you to theme the DND icon with the current moon phase.

The package, entitled Do Not Phase, piggybacks on the popular Protean jailbreak tweak in order to accomplish its goal. The result is a slick-looking Do Not Disturb moon icon that clues you in on the day’s current moon phase.

How to quickly enable Notification Center’s Do Not Disturb mode on Mac

Like its iOS counterpart, Notification Center on the Mac features a Do Not Disturb mode for suppressing notifications at inopportune times. The great thing about Notification Center on iOS is that it can be quickly enabled via a handy Control Center toggle. But did you know that there’s a quick and easy way to enable Do Not Disturb mode on your Mac, as well?

DisturbMeLater: disable Do Not Disturb after a set period of time

Do Not Disturb is a great feature in iOS, and it’s one that I use quite often. However, from time to time, I forget to disengage Do Not Disturb, and it causes me to miss texts, phone calls, etc. Yes, it’s a great feature, but it can be a little dangerous if you have the tendency to forget to turn it off, especially if you have it set to silence notifications even when the phone is unlocked.

DisturbMeLater is a newly released jailbreak tweak that can help alleviate this issue. It allows you to establish a time interval when Do Not Disturb will disable by itself with no user interaction. This differs from the schedule feature in Do Not Disturbs settings because you can set it on the fly directly from Control Center, which makes it much less tedious to use.

Using Do Not Disturb in OS X Yosemite’s Messages app

Like the Messages app in iOS 8, the Yosemite version of Messages allows you to mute specific conversations by enabling Do Not Disturb. Do Not Disturb ensures that you still receive messages, but you won’t be bothered by notifications when new messages arrive.
