Bedtime mode

The iOS tool Do Not Disturb at Bedtime, as the name suggests, silences notifications at night. Additionally, when you have the feature enabled, you won’t see anything on your phone’s Lock Screen except for the time and date. Here’s a quick overview on how Do Not Disturb at Bedtime works. 

To enable Do Not Disturb at Bedtime

You can activate the feature by following these steps:

1) In the Settings app, select Do Not Disturb.

2) If you haven’t already done so, select a schedule. It should include a “from” and “to” time. Ideally, think of this range as when you’re in bed and want to be sleeping.

3) Toggle Bedtime to the ON position.

In the example above, the Do Not Disturb at Bedtime mode is activated each night between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m.

During Bedtime, you will no longer see notifications or media tiles on your Lock Screen. Instead, the screen will dim, and you will only see the time, date, and status bar.

To disable Do Not Disturb at Bedtime

You can disable the new feature by :

1) Open the Settings app.

2) Select Do Not Disturb.

3) Toggle Bedtime to the OFF position.

The Do Not Disturb at Bedtime feature is simple to set up and use and could prove very useful, especially if you’re the type of person who wakes up easily in the middle of the night. The new tool should make your night more restful.
