iOS Do Not Disturb feature missing its scheduled shut off time for some usersAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
One of the newer features of iOS is Do Not Disturb mode, which allows a user to block incoming notifications for a set period of time. Do Not Disturb has helped iOS users in their quest to get a good night's sleep, but like some people are likely to be doing this morning, it looks like the feature's scheduling is being messed with due to the New Year. Some iOS folk are reporting today that Do Not Disturb failed to turn off at the time that it was scheduled to do so, continuing to block notifications and calls past its shut-off time. The issue doesn't seem to be affecting all iOS users, as some are reporting that Do Not Disturb worked just as it should this morning.
iOS has had its share of time-related issues in the past, with alarms failing to go off and clocks forgetting that Daylight Saving Time phrase "Spring forward, Fall back." The good news this time is that Do Not Disturb doesn't affect a user's alarms, so anyone having issues with the feature will still get up when they wanted, unless they're waiting for some sort of wake-up call. We've yet to hear anything from Apple on the matter, but we'll be sure to update you if the Cupertino firm does have something to say. Did any of your iOS devices block your flood of New Year's messages and calls longer than they should've this morning?
