Found something new on my iPhone; Emergency Bypass for Do Not Disturb

Forum
iOS & iPadOS

Hi All, I was changing a ringtone in one of my contacts. I discovered a setting called "Emergency bypass" which when turned on will allow a call from that contact to go through even when "Do not disturb" is on. Maybe you all knew about this but I thought it was pretty neat. Had to share.

It's been around since Do Not Disturb became a setting. You can set each individual contact to bypass the Do Not Disturb setting. It is a neat feature though.

Nice. What I do in loo of that is I just let my favorite contact go through. good idea in case I don't want to add them to my faves.
