The Do Not Disturb mode is a frequently used iPhone feature that has received its share of upgrades in iOS 12. You might remember that last year, the Do Not Disturb while driving feature has been added to the iOS environment, allowing your iPhone to automatically silence when it detects that you’re driving in order to maximize your attention to the steering wheel.

Now, a new Bedtime mode (not the same with the Bedtime feature of the Clock app) has been added which has the role to hide all incoming notifications during nighttime, allowing you to easily check the time and date while sleeping, without getting distracted by other messages. You can disable Bedtime mode in the morning, with a simple tap of the screen. All hidden notifications will then glide in. This way you don’t miss anything and also get a good rest.
