Continuing my look at iOS 6 features, I am going to do a quick look at the feature DO NOT DISTURB.

Do Not Disturb is a neat little function that allows users to block unwanted phone calls. It’s meant to assist people during times of rest so that unimportant phone calls, like solicitors, do not interrupt sleeping. In this day and age when we all have become increasingly more accessible, Do Not Disturb may become an essential part of our lives.

To enable Do Not Disturb manually, go to Settings and simply flip on Do Not Disturb mode on the first screen. This will turn the function on until you turn it off. You can also create a preset schedule for Do Not Disturb in the Notification menu. You can choose to make Do Not Disturb active during pre-selected times like 11:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m.

In this preset area, you can also select to allow certain callers, or groups of callers, through the Do Not Disturb block. These callers will not be silenced at all. If you have turned Repeated Calls on, calls that repeat from the same person within three minutes will be let through the block, too.

This is a very handy tool especially for those who work odd shifts. It is a very nice addition to iOS’s phone features.
