It’s easy to keep your iPhone notifications under control with the Deliver Quietly feature. With this helpful addition to iOS 12, you can make sure that notifications from certain apps won’t distract or annoy you. Whether you’re in a meeting or trying to get work done, Deliver Quietly will help keep you focused on what matters.

To use the Deliver Quietly feature, first open the Settings app on your iPhone. Then select “Focus” and tap “Do Not Disturb.” You can then choose which apps and people are allowed to send notifications quietly. You can also set up a schedule for when this Focus will turn on, as well as add filters for what types of notifications you want to allow through.

Once Deliver Quietly is enabled, any new notifications from that app will be muted and won’t light up the iPhone screen. The notification will still show up in the Notification Center, but without any sound or visual alerts.

If you decide later that you want to receive alerts from an app again, simply open the Notification Center (swipe down from the top of your screen) and find a notification from that app. Swipe left and choose “Manage Notifications -> Deliver Prominently” to turn off the Deliver Quietly feature for that app. Repeat these steps for all apps that have this feature enabled if needed.

Now when using your iPhone, you can stay productive and focused without worrying about being disturbed by unnecessary notifications!
