Let's say you are at the office 9-5, can you schedule the phone to be muted (mostly messaging, FB) during these hours and / or this location.


This can be done by scheduling Do Not Disturb.

Go into SettingsDo Not Disturb and enable Scheduled from 9 a.m. To 5 p.m.

Under Allow Calls From you may allow certain people to call you even while Do Not Disturb is active. Calls silenced by Do Not Disturb will go directly to voicemail.

At your discretion, you may also choose to Always silence notifications, or Only while iPhone is locked.

Emergency and Amber Alerts will still blare through Do Not Disturb. Those may only be silenced by toggling the hardware Mute switch, or by disabling them at the bottom of the Notifications menu.

    Thanks for the answer @Phong. Is there a way to set multiple schedules (like 9@5, 12@6am, etc.) ? – David Jul 5 '17 at 3:32
  • Unfortunately, not as of iOS 11. It is also not possible to geofence DND. – user11633 Jul 5 '17 at 3:42
  • When is the iPhone is considered in locked state? – David Jul 5 '17 at 13:33
  • I’m sorry; I don’t understand what you mean by that. – user11633 Jul 6 '17 at 1:48

    i'm still looking for a solution that can support multiple schedules, but your reply answers the question the way it is phrased, so I'll accept your answer. – David Jul 7 '17 at 18:18
