I currently have Do Not Disturb on my iPhone (iOS 9) scheduled to run while I am at college. The only issue is that I am not at college every day.

Is there a way I can schedule Do Not Disturb for certain days? (For example: Tuesday-Thursday)

    I think what you are asking is not possible. Maybe an App can be designed to do that. – rebatoma Jan 3 '16 at 22:16

Sadly, on a non jailbroken phone you can only set Do Not Disturb to set hours, regardless of which day. Therefore, every day gets the same hours.

What would be nice, would be a system like the alarms where you can set multiple ones and have them repeat on choosable days, then you could set 2 DND period, one to cover weekdays, and one for weekends etc.

I would recommend making a feature request at this link.

  • Oh well. Thanks for your answer. This is what I was expecting. Unfortunately I do not want to jailbreak my device since I find there is no need to on iOS 9 and all it does is make my phone unstable, also when I want to update when jailbroken I would need to restore first. – iProgram Jan 3 '16 at 22:43

    it's such a common use case what a shame – igor Aug 5 '19 at 9:36
  • To add to your "would be nice" -- they since then added Automation which can be used: apple.stackexchange.com/a/398408/326908 – Etienne Bruines Mar 12 at 8:23

The only way to achieve that is with a jailbreak.

    Please specify how this can be accomplished with a jailbroken iPhone. – Stevoisiak Jul 10 '17 at 13:07
  • How ? Well would say via one of the many third party apps that are not on the Apple site . Would be surprised if something was not there for this. – AndyF Jan 29 '20 at 15:24
