    Do Not Disturb differs from Mute

    The difference here, as we see it, is that the physical button located on your device can mute your ringtones and app alters - but not your alarms. The Do Not Disturb mode silences your ringtones, alerts from email and other apps, while your device is locked. Interestingly, you can schedule Do Not Disturb for a certain time in a day.

    Here's how you can enable the Do Not Disturb function on your iPhone and iPad.
