4. Do Not Disturb While Driving
Apple is releasing a version of Do Not Disturb that could literally end up saving lives. Once enabled, iOS 11’s Do Not Disturb While Driving feature automatically recognizes when you’re in a car and basically disables notifications and only shows a blank screen. You can 3D Touch the notification and select “I’m not driving” to disable this mode for the current drive.
Apple is doing some clever stuff to automatically engage this. Either by recognizing your car stereo’s Bluetooth or by figuring out that you’re in a moving car by blasting Wi-Fi frequencies. It’s pretty cool stuff.
As this technology is built on top of Do Not Disturb, you can let certain contacts through. The feature will also automatically reply to messages saying you’re currently driving.
