Wow! iPhone 13, iPhone 12 users can now mute notifications of specific people
With the launch of new iOS 16, now iPhone users will be able to silence notifications from specific people. Know how this trick will work on iPhone 13, iPhone 12 and other iPhone models.
Apple iOS 16 has brought many new and interesting experiences for iPhone users! Whether it is the new customisable lock screen feature or the tweaks in the existing features to make the iPhone experience more enriching - the iOS 16 has a lot to offer. One of these is the Focus Mode, which was helping iPhone users earlier to reduce distractions and let the user concentrate on a single task by blocking notifications. Now, Apple has added several improvements which will let you customize the notification while being in Focus mode. Unlike earlier, now Focus mode supports selecting a few apps and even contacts to filter out the notifications.
In the previous iOS 15 version, iPhone users could only choose the apps and people who could be muted. Now, things have changed! If you don't want the constant buzz of notifications from some specific contacts or app, then here's a trick for you. Just follow these steps and silence the notifications from specific contacts or apps on iPhone 13, iPhone 12 and other iOS 16 supported devices.
How to silence notifications in Focus Mode on iPhone
To silence notifications in Focus Mode from a specific app or contact, you will need to have the latest iOS 16 update. It is currently, in the public beta stage, which can be tested by all iPhone users, but the final version will be launched along with the iPhone 14 in September.
Once your iPhone is running on iOS 16, open the Settings on your Apple iPhone and open the apps list.
Once the app opens, then simply tap on the Focus option from the list and this will open up the Focus Settings page.
Now select the focus profile or tap on the “+” button available at the top-right corner to create a new one.
In case you're creating a new Focus profile, then you can assign a name and icon. After that tap the People section. While, if you have selected an already existing Focus profile then simply tap the People section on the next screen.
Ensure that the “Silence Notifications From” option is checked. Now click the “+” button to add the contacts to whom this new Focus setting will apply.
Now tap the “Done” and it’s completed! You will no longer have the notification from the selected people during the Focus Mode.
