If you have an iPhone, you know firsthand that it can be super overwhelming to get a lot of messages at once — especially if they're from the same person who just won't leave you alone. But if one person is bombarding you with annoying, non-urgent texts, there's a brilliant way to hide their alerts, at least temporarily: the Do Not Disturb iPhone mode.
If you've ever poked around your iPhone's settings, you might have noticed the Do Not Disturb option before. If you've ever experimented with it, you know that this clever mode can silence calls, alerts, and notifications that you get while your device is locked. It can even schedule a time to take calls or choose who you'll allow them from. We can't deny it: This whole "Do Not Disturb" thing sounds like a temporary dream come true of escape from this hectic and busy world we live in!
