When I sleep, I don't want to hear any notifications from my phone, unless I get a phone call. In case it's an emergency from a family member, etc.

Is there a way to set it to silent on every app but phone calls easily?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Put the contacts you want to allow to call you when you are sleeping to a group an give that group a name. Then: Settings > Do not Disturb > Allow Calls From > select group of contacts that you created.

Additionally you may select to allow repeated calls (if someone will call you second time within 3 minutes - you will hear it) and choose Scheduled if you want to schedule your Do Not Disturb to switch on automatically.
