How to use Do Not Disturb Bedtime mode on iPhone and iPad in iOS 12.

Putting your phone down at night can be a hard thing to do, especially if you are constantly bombarded with messages, emails and other notifications. While Do Not Disturb silences notifications, you will still see them pop up if you are using your iPhone for something else like reading an e-book or a web page before closing your eyes for the night, and sometimes all it takes is one pesky notification to send you down a rabbit hole for the next half hour or so. iOS 12 introduces a Bedtime Mode for Do Not Disturb that will block notifications from showing while you are using your iPhone.

How do I use Do Not Disturb shortcuts?

In iOS 12, Do Not Disturb has several useful 3D Touch shortcuts. Simply deep press on the DND icon in the Control Center to view them. You have the option to quickly set DND for one hour, until this evening, or until you leave your current location, which is perfect for the movie theater. Also, DND has access to your Calendar, so if you are in a scheduled event you will also have an option to turn on DND until the event is over. The schedule button will take you to Settings where you can make a custom schedule.
