Apple’s “Do Not Disturb” is a useful feature that blocks any kind of notification, alert, and call sound or screen light when the phone is locked. There’s a “Do Not Disturb While Driving” option which activates while you are driving and stops the notification to appear on the screen if enabled. It is a potentially life-saving feature, but sometimes it automatically turns on during the incongruous time.
You can turn off the “Do Not Disturb While Driving” option when it’s not required. In this guide, we will show you how it’s done.
Turn-off “Do Not Disturb While Driving” Option on iPhone
Sometimes, when you are traveling by train or any other moving car, the “Do Not Disturb While Driving” option activates itself thinking you are the one driving the vehicle. In those cases, you can turn off the option. Follow the guide to learn how you can do it.
First, open the “Settings” app in your device by tapping on the gear icon or searching it through the “Spotlight” feature and opening it from the search results.
In “Settings” tap on the “Do Not Disturb” option.
Navigate to the “Do Not Disturb While Driving” section, and tap on “Activate”.
On the next screen, you will see a number of options that determine when the feature activates. Select from “Automatically, When Connected to Car Bluetooth, Manually” options. We will be selecting “Manually” to disable the Automatic feature entirely.
Now, the feature will only activate when you will manually turn it on from the control center. The “Do Not Disturb” icon looks like a crescent moon in the Control Center on iPhone.
